[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is not HDR, but a view of a place that should be under 30 feet of water, instead it lays bare. Hot dry winds, 101F temps here, we are under extreme fire danger again today. (Horizon tilt on purpose, so don't have a cow!)

Hi Linda & greetings from China!

I like it anyway. The diagonal shoreline adds dynamism & the warm cold color contrasts between the pale blue & gold are nice. Tfs!

Dear Linda,
I guess you've been using wide angle lense, right? The atmopsheric heat is intelligentely driven from the golden rays of sun. I don't see tilt of horrizon but convexity of the axes previals which is aesthetic in this vertical presentation. A wonderful snapshot of the lake, well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Regards,

Very nice capture of this sunset! Good control of lighting with enough to show texture in the foreground. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

bonsoir Linda,

So you didn't want the cow.. anyway, it seems to work it is just enoufh tilted to suggest you made it on purpose. Good DOF for this kind of image. the cool balance has a nice contrast with the warm sunset. Nice work and TFS
