Beautiful shot from Washington State.

That's a whole lot of DOF

This is the kind of shot where DOF can kill you. You have done very well in that department.

I like the layered look. You have, top to bottom, the sky, the mountains, the water with reflections, and the foreground shore. Very well done.

Yes!

squirl033, please do you have or can you remember any of the technical detail? How small an aperture and how long an exposure? Tripod?Focused nearby, or on the hyperfocal point?

We're often using vertical orientation precisely because it can cover a great range of distance plus height in scenic areas, so DOF is always a challenge.

Squirrl,

Great job. As Cal noted this certainly a wonderful example of layering. Love it.

Aloha

Very, very nice.

This seems the type of shot that Adam Jones, photographer, was trying to show us how to take on Saturday when we went to one of his "safaris" put on my Canon and our local heritage society.

You did good. Make that great!!!
