[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been placed in The Bruce Peninsula for the next nine months. This is the Rankin River which was once part of the portage system for the native peoples, a way to get from Georgian Bay to Lake Huron without having to canoe all the way up to Tobermory

PP: Minor reframing for exact thirds, sharpening in all but the smoothest part of the water
I look forward to your feedback

Ciao Silke, great return on TN too, great view of lovely place with fantastic reflections, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello my friend! Good to see you here! I LOVE reflections! They are sometimes better than the shot they reflect! nice use of 3rds here! Love the blue/brown combination here!

Love the mirror-reflection you have captured in here, Silke!

Great management of light and exposure with superb natural color tones of the blue sky.
POV and DOF are excellent, and contrasts are well managed within the image.
Nice job!

Kind regards,

  • Great

Greetings Silke,
When I viewed your image,it reminded me of a photo excercise I did a long time ago,which was to shoot something ordinary & make it beautiful,& to me that is precisely what you have done here,by capturing the ordinary background as a beautiful reflection & changed to something that is not the least bit ordinary.

Olá Silke,
I repeat many voices here, what is special and unique in this photo is the reflectio of a place very common and ordinary. But it has an important role here and could not be eliminated because it would result a reflection very common. So, this photo is perfect.

Hoi Silke,

Good capture of the reflections. Funny to see the clouds in the water. Clarity and colors are great and give it a natural look. Good compo.
