Lake Pykara : This shot waa taken at Lake Pykara in the Nilgiri Hills of Ooty in Tamil Nadu in November,2009.
Lake Pykara is a placid lake located between the lush green valleys of Ooty.It is surrounded by dense forests and is situated at about 19 km from Ooty on the path going from Ooty to Bangalore and are situated close to mudumalai. The lake is a wonderful example of nature's beauty on the hills. One would definitely love boating in the green waters of the wonderful lake and the Pykara falls close to the lake is a fantastic place where one can enjoy photography and a few quiet moments to sit by the fall and hear nature's heartbeat in the sound of the falling water of the falls.

Green water lake, with forest in black shade around.
The boats gave excelent contrast. Looking at the map saw a unique shape it has looking from the sky's.

The length of the lake is giving depth to the composition. The poit of view is showing the details and colours of the boats. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

That is some kind of green water alright, I don't recall ever seeing a body of water this shade of green...it's quite interesting! I can't quite figure out exactly what it is, but there's something very calming about this shot...perhaps the cloudy sky with a slight warm tone, or the gentle movement on the waters surface?? No matter the reason, it's made for an agreeable visual, and the color elements in the foreground corner make for a nice area of color contrast and brightness. Nicely seen and presented. Have a great day ahead.
All the best,

The boats and the colourful landing stage make a good frame for the darkened landscape beyond. The stormy sky adds a touch of drama and lightens the top part of the image.

Hello Farhat,the overcast sky has added a nice luminance to the tranquil appearance of the Lake with the pleasure boats giving a lovely splash of colour.
Best wishes Les.

Il y a quelque chose d'intéressant dans cette eau verte, probablement à cause de la surface de nuages qui recouvre le lac. L'avant plan est un fascinant fouillis de couleurs.

This is a very lovely and tranquil scene, Love the rich and deep green color of the water. You did well with this low light. The foreground adds to the liveliness of the place with many baots for a tour on the lake.

Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazano jezero i trenutak sa oblacima koji donose kisu.
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje.
Good composition and perspective, beautiful lake and showed a moment with clouds that bring rain.
A good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Have a great day, all the best.

Fantastic landscape in vertical format.
Beautiful image of this lake that allows to stay really in touch with the nature.
You have chosen an excellent POV to emphasize the width and the depth of this natural scenery.
It's a real pleasure for the eyes see this photo.

Good frame and colors.
Have a nice afternoon
kato (11630) 2013-07-04 5:36
You're capturing well this lake by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the calm lake with green color and the rich woods of backdrop. And, it's good at the color contrast with small pier and boats anchored to there.
mohammad_H (9728) 2013-07-04 8:54
Eye-catching and pleasant background is very beautiful, relaxing space with an area of central vision
Unique and spectacular, with good clarity, transparency
Have a nice day and enjoy every moment of life.

This has an ominous feel to it. I kind of like the silhouette effect on the distant trees. The rusty metal thing (roof, sign?) in the foreground is a distraction, though. I tried to get rid of it by recropping but was not very successful. I will upload the result to the WS, though.
Notwithstanding the fg, I like the overall feel to the photo.
mjw364 (2) 2013-07-04 15:37
What a great colour of green! Nice depth with the distance between Fg and BG portrayed well between boats and treeline.

I really wonder what kind of fish is growing in this lake with the beautiful green waters, very exotic place, very intriguing image to visit and to discover the natural beauty of your beautiful country!
all the best always

ciao farhat un immagine molto interessante e una location molto particolare con questo lago e le barchette turistiche in primo piano il cielo e la luce rendono il tutto molto misterioso e suggesrtivo
ciao caro amico
Tigerlily (3299) 2013-07-05 10:58
This is really beautiful Farhat. I like the colour and light.. the boats, especially the red one made the image more interesting.
Oh.. I just realised that I used up the smilies today.. sorry about that)
Glint (6171) 2013-07-05 12:19
it is so unusual to see such green water. Usually we expect the water to reflect the sky. Interesting fg detail with the little boats. Good contrast with the dark trees and luminosity of clouds.
jemaflor (89351) 2013-07-05 12:39
interesting pov on the water and a composition well balanced with FG, tfs.

J'aime l'instant paisible du lac, sa couleur verte, l'avant plan avec les bateaux et le ciel nuageux qui semble tourné a l'orage, belle image
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-07-07 6:55
nicely composed scene with so well contrasting different elements.The green water looks captivating and the overall atmosphere seems to be so tranquil and relaxing.
Have a nice sunday
ourania (36366) 2013-07-07 9:14
I like very much the layers of interest and colours in this composition, the contrasts among them are very intriguing. The distant scenery and the sky look monochromatic, there's a sense of mystery in the upper third of the frame. The water has an unusual and fascinating even colouring, the empty space in the middle part is really attractive. The foreground is busy and interesting vivified by the light, the colours and the presence of people. There's great sense of depth and an intriguing connection of the three parts. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,
danos (90305) 2013-07-08 2:38
nice the view of this section of the lake with the greenish colour of the water to be very strange.
The boats on the foreground and the moody sky makes the image even more effective.
mkamionka (32459) 2013-07-08 8:04
very interesting colors, both of the lake and the sky. It results in an unusual mood. The lake is well framed on one side by the nature on another by the tourist facilities.
clic (16074) 2013-07-09 6:39
Lot of serenity seen here during this tranquil moment enliven of the bright colors of sleeping boats that incite to further exploration of this "medicine" against stress!
Urs (14082) 2013-07-28 21:45
Looks like as if there will be rain soon despite sunshine on the recreational boats. At the same time these boats set an excellent contrast to forested opposite side of the lake - here the civilisation and there the wilderness. Well done
mirosu (15302) 2013-08-08 4:53
A very nice view to quiet lake waters. I like the composition with the boats in FG and the excellent view over nicely lit water to the forest in BG. Well done. Greetings, Miro
