Let me know what you think about this shot. I have provided both the color and black and white version.

I like your color version better. The fact one could draw parabolas from side to side through the image is interesting--it's pleasing to the eye. Nothing straight in the picture except the trees.

I like the color version best, it's absolutely beautiful.

And not a man made object in sight. That makes it even better.

Hagar, and everyone else thus far, thanks for the feed back. I too like the color version better.

Regarding "not a man made object in sight" comment it is worth noting that the full res version does have people in it. About 1/2 - 2/3 into the scene on the right shore line there are abuot 6 people walking/hiking. The lake is so big that you need to zoom into 100% just to see them. They are almost specs. I find it quite interesting that the people look so small. Too bad you can't see them on the 500x333 sized pic. I also took a pic of them zoomed to 50mm (80mm equiv) to emphesize this. Maybe I'll post it later to show you.

But yes, not a man made object in sight is what I like and try to do in my landscape pictures whenever possible.

Great shot. I like the color one.

I got a crazy idea, but not sure how to do it. :?

What if you make the reflection part color and the other B&W or vise versa? I have PSP10 anyone know how to do that with the software? :?

The word that comes to mind is "PURE". Great shot.

I think the beautiful blue of the sky, in the reflection, and especially in the shadows, adds a lot to the image. The b&w image loses a lot.

Nice capture.
