It doesn't look real to me. The foreground trees look real but the far side rim looks fake. The water looks odd, also, but that may be due to the cloudy sky. I have seen a lot of pictures of Crater Lake and have been up there once about ten years ago. Anyway I don't recall it looking anything like your picture.

Anyway, that's how I see it. Nothing personal.

It was a cloudy and somewhat windy day. I was standing at the viewpoint across from the main parking lot. The water does have a strange look to it. I didn't alter the image beyond what was said (although I did transform the horizon a few degrees).

Nothing personal taken I always invite critique -- good or bad. I may or may not agree with them, they may or may not take into account the events or limitations, but they always let me know how others see my works.

Thanks for your comments. They give me another insight to the image and allow me to study it closer. Perhaps the sharpening is too strong.


edit: I went back to the Tiff file, converted it to 8 bit sRGB jpg file, reduced the image size, and uploaded without making any corrections. Same thoughts, Cal or did the processing alter it?

hmm...i'm not sure it's the back shore itself that looks strange, but the way the water looks, and where the water and the back meet...

the foreground looks like it could use some contrast (lol what you just fixed in PSCS )

nice composition

I like the first shot, with your processing.

I like the look of the first photo...it seems to almost be a black and white photo that was subsequently colored

It has a vintage, old film look to it.
