Danau Ranau (Lake Ranau)
This Lake is the second largest lake in Sumatra and located on the western border of Lampung and South Sumatera province.

It was created from a large earthquake and volcanic eruption. Filled with a lot of water then there were so much plants and also bushes (ranau) around.

Mount Seminung (at background) has an altitude of about 1880 meters from sea level.

Surrounded by hills and valleys. So that the air in this place was cool, the temperature ranges in this place between 20 to 26C.

In the morning some people living there usually go to the water to take the fish traps they install the night before.

Hoi Yopie,

You managed the light so wonderfully here, the rays falling on the waters, is just amazing!

The sharpness and POV are well done and the colors are natural. The palm trees also add great mood into the shot. A wonderful scene you have captured through this lovely work.

best regards,

Hi Yopie,
Great light display in this panorama with awesome management and perfect control in exposure.
Nice reflection on the water. The misty effect is marvellous, thus rendering the softness and tenderness of this delicate presentation.
Great DOF and beautiful layers of green.
Well seen and neatly presented.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Yopie,
Very good use of the ambiant light . Good placement of the boats in your composition . I also appreciate the different shades of green and the effect of the morning fog .

hellop yopie

rays coming for the right upper corner adds charm to the shot.
the pp work on the people is good and with levels you have highliten the details.
nice frame to look at.

Very nice shot. The mist and the slanting rays of light are stunning. The dynamics are beautifully controlled in this shot - no OE or UE, just a beautiful balance.

Sounds like an idyllic part of the world, too!

I like your cinematic framing.


Hello Yopie,

In my opinion this is an extremely good photography.
Great composition, sun rays through the clouds make a fantastic atmosphere.
Excellent sharpness and colors.
Excellent framing, too.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hello, Yopie -
This is a very special image. The scene is peaceful with the two boats placed nicely in the frame on the placid surface of the water. What is really effective here is the mist and the way it catches the slanted rays of light. Warm, natural colors. Excellent!

Bom dia Yopie

Wow!! What a amazing scenery! Those sunbeams, you've captured them very well! One minor thing: The boat in the front could use some more space on the left site. A little more space there would be better for the whole picture.
I love all the green colours in this shot (the water, the trees, the grass).
