Default The Lake

After over 20 years, I returned to a lake that I had spent a great deal of time at during my youth. I had forgotten how serene and tranquil, Tie Lake could be during the morning hours.

What gorgeous scenery - beautiful shots, but definitely a little PP would make these pop !

i really like #2 here if you fix the horizon, its a nice mood, very tranquil.

i also think the forum ate your photos, they are quite soft and very highly compressed, i think your originals must have exceeded the limits.

Very nice...#3 is my fav. (it would be #2 if it wasn't for that piece of deck sticking up on the right...it's very distracting).

I think hards hit on the point, the softness could be a compression error with the forum. Overall very nice mood that your shots set up.

The first one does it for me, I can see myself there on a boat fishing. I can just imagine the big fish that jumped out of the water.

Beautiful pictures. Mountain lakes are magical places to be around. You have done an excellent job of portraying some of the moods they present.

Number 1 is my favorite.

Thanks, all for the comments. Tie Lake is in the SE corner of the province of British Columbia. You are right about the compression factor. I had to resize these considerably and they do look like they have been affected on screen.

Beautiful scenes, beautifully photographed!
Softness doesn't bother me too much in these - maybe my old eyes enjoy the mood of a soft photo sometimes.
But you might want to apply a bit of sharpen after resize next time...
