Lake Attersee shoreline in Austria. Parts of the musical 'Sound of Music' were filmed on the opposite shore of this picturesque lake, situated in western Austria. I composed this in thirds. It looks a little like a tricolor flag! The water is a deep turquoise colour on account of glacial rock flour washed down from the mountains and dissolved in the water. The cottages are holiday homes for wealthy Austrians and Germans. Taken from a moving tour boat (10 Euro one way Attersee town to the south shore of the lake).

Hello Chris ,
Wonderful contrast between the turquoise water , and the other green tonalities of grass and woods . the little red boat provides a fine focal point .

Yes, but I don't know a country with such tricolor, and this is not Austrian flag too ;)
Anyway, Excellent composition, very beautiful landscape, fine details.

Your composition is great breaking this scene up into 3 zones of color. The red boat provides a nice point of interest for the scene. The muted lighting worked well bringing out rich color and detail. This looks like a place that I would like to live!

You used well the principle of the thirds to create an excellent composition. The widennes of the lake is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the cottages. I like the effect of the light on the colors. Have a nice day.

Austria, Switzerland and Germany are three countries with almost the same landscape, but Austria maybe the most beautiful.
A lovely panoramic view about these area.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a n ice day,

Tu as choisi le point de vue idéal pour nous montrer ces superbes maisons dans leur nid de verdure. J'aime beaucoup la couleur de l'eau et la belle netteté d'ensemble.

like the distinctive 3 bands of green in this iconic Austrian lake-scape. Looks like a beautiful place to spend a sailing holiday, if that floats your boat so to speak. :-)

Les tons verts sont bien adaptées à cette région verdoyante de l'Autriche. Un petit chalet ici ne me déplairait pas!

Un paysage aux trois couleurs partant du vert foncés, au vert lumineux et la couleur turquoise de l'eau, de belles habitations surtout celle près de l'eau

Fantastic colors in this tricolor flag with three shades of green. Good job, congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Hello Chris, Indeed, with the rock flour dissolved in water, it has this marvelous turquoise colour. All the three colours are beautiful, fresh green meadows and deep dark forest are very nice too. Excellent composition with these three stripes. Nice houses with balcconies, pleasant place for holidays.
