Altaussee in October, I'm surprised to find (at least as far as I know) no other photos of this on this lake at all yet. I would have preferred a swan on the lake, and snow on the peaks but they were absent. The sheer mountains opposite are a part of the Totesgebirge chain, elevation around 2500m. Late afternoon light, 18mm. focal length.
The small Austrian alpine village of Altaussee is nestled on the shores of the Altaussee lake, beneath the Loser Plateau. Occupying an area of 92 km², the village is home to 1,888 people. Altaussee is within the Salzkammergut region, in the county of Styria.

Wonderful reflections and well saturated autumny colours, Tan!
Did you take this one from a shore or boat?
leonorkuhn (16235) 2007-02-07 20:44
Great landscape! Very nice place. I like this beautiful colors, light and the excellent reflections.
Very well done
triptych2003 (1534) 2007-02-07 20:46
looks like you have a one of a kind shot then. awesome reflections and colours. i like the detail on the mountains too. the building on the lake's edge just caps it off beautifully. well done
stego (24132) 2007-02-07 21:02
So wonderful... Really paradisiac... Very clever compo for the graphical disposition of the subjects, the reflections and also the game of light and dark that enhances very nicely the house and the mountain on the bg.
Sharpness and colors are perfect, as ever.
asajernigan (21427) 2007-02-07 21:17
This is a great shot with a nice reflection. The lighting and colors are great with good sharpness and detail. I like your composition and POV showing us the lake and boathouse.
daddo (26528) 2007-02-07 21:32
Hi Tan. You captured the pristine quality vey well. The sharpness of detail, the crisp light and the clear reflection all speak of nature at its best and unpolluted.Wonderful light.My compliments. Regards. Klaudio.
nmess (2301) 2007-02-07 21:43
Talk about Wow factor. This picture has it all, great color, subject and composition. I love the reflection and think that the house to the left adds interest and scale to the picture. Great work Tan.
scotthosner (63) 2007-02-07 21:54
This is a nice, eye-catching scene. I do agree that snow on the peeks and maybe a swan would lend more drama to this picture. I do love that rocky mountain and it's reflection. Great compo & POV. Wasn't sure if I liked the boathouse at first, but I think it does lend to the sense of relaxation that this photo exudes.
sanalytis (1634) 2007-02-07 22:51
This is a beautiful landspace image. I like your composition, the refections and colors are outstanding.
travelwithtarun (175) 2007-02-07 23:26
A great photograph. The colours of the autumn are great even the house is in the mood of autumn. This photo is good for posters.
deblink (2548) 2007-02-08 0:05
What a superb shot. The reflections are magical. Fantastic quality photo, so sharp I almost feel I am there, (I wish I was).
alejandroguzman (4684) 2007-02-08 0:10
Magnificent postal with beautiful colors. As well as the DOF and light.
partha (14020) 2007-02-08 1:01
Perfect shot. The reflection adds nice effect here.
Cormac (26565) 2007-02-08 1:22
Beautiful saturated colours and a great reflection too. Maybe it would have been better with snow and swans, but it's gorgeous as it is, which is an inspiring scene of lake and mountain. Well done!
flory (4848) 2007-02-08 2:00
well,well,this looks amazing,even don't have snow on the peaks and swan on the lake...it was a problem in this year with the snow,indeed..but finally,comes..:)..relaxing view here with well saturated colors/nice reflections on the lake..
evanrizo (456) 2007-02-08 2:07
Amazing picture, with these reflactions,lightness,colors and perspective.
A very idyllic place.
jjcordier (79297) 2007-02-08 2:21
Cette région d'Autriche est magnifique et ta photo rend superbement la beauté de ce paysage en automne.
PS : il y a des taches dans le ciel....poussières sur le capteur?
Gerrit (51935) 2007-02-08 2:54
a real jig-saw classic. Perfect mirror and colours. Ideal composition.
berek (49230) 2007-02-08 2:58

gelor (3229) 2007-02-08 3:28
Une superbe image douce et reposante. Les couleurs sont très belles. Bravo.
sleon (9402) 2007-02-08 3:45
What a glorious autumn scene. There is excellent definition and contrast in the rock face of the mountain, and the colours and light are very attractive. It looks to me as though you have a couple of dirt spots in the sky (probably a dirty sensor) but they are not too intrusive and could easily be cloned out.
ktanska (27226) 2007-02-08 4:05
You've really had an awesome tour on European autumn. One more Alpine lake with majestic mountain background fall colours and excellent reflections from the lake.
delkoo (68) 2007-02-08 4:21
Beautifully crafted,.You've done that very effectively here,
with a daring composition and great perspective and POV.
Paolo (41222) 2007-02-08 4:24
Hi Tan, excellent image, with a beautiful reflection on the water and a fantastic view on the mounts and the old wood house.
Stan (2770) 2007-02-08 4:27
Well balanced composition. Splendid landscape with great light and reflections.
Very well done!
ahmetgedikli (25603) 2007-02-08 4:33

Merhaba Tan Bey,
Fotoğraf o kadar canlı duruyorki sanki 3D.
Renkler muazzam, yansıma muhteşem.
xramm (1831) 2007-02-08 4:56
This picture is very good in composition and color harmony, especially colors reflect the correct light of that date.Your color knowledge is good.
Budapestman (82620) 2007-02-08 5:01
Gorgeous shot! This is a very impressive POV and fascinating spectacle. I like the beautiful reflection! This is a very peaceful and picturesque country. Splendid image!
Thank you, nice days
PixelTerror (0) 2007-02-08 5:05
Again one of your stunning landscapes with mirroring water and superb autumn color touches, light etc... However I find the PoV a bit low here ;-)
I like the great view, motivates me to visit the place, I see two captor dust spots above the mountains on the right.
Have a nice day,
ChrisJ (111504) 2007-02-08 5:08
Wonderful reflections in the lake, with superb Fall colours & outstanding sharpness. Good lighting & colour contrasts. Tfs!
TravelerNL (3011) 2007-02-08 5:11
Excellent mountain photo with good reflections and some late fall colors. I like your compo and the place you gave the house.
dkeus31 (27735) 2007-02-08 6:03
Yes a great place, I like the reflexion of the mountain in the water.
ALIRIZA (16423) 2007-02-08 6:44
Ne güzel bir yer burası, kim istemezki burada yaşamayı. Renkler, yansıma her şey çok hoş. Harika bir manzara. Ellerine sağlık...
John_F_Kennedy (43665) 2007-02-08 7:20
I like the clarity and contrast in this composition. Great work with the reflection on the water.
bostankorkulugu (42412) 2007-02-08 10:22
Yine kusursuz güzellikte bir kare sizden... şahane kompozisyon, süper renkler ve yansımalar... elinize sağlık...

Very nice place and good colors and reflections! The sharpnes and contrast of colors is very good too!
Congratulations my friend!

gilou530 (34) 2007-02-08 14:36
un photo magnifique qui met en valeur un paysage grandiose de ce pays au couleur d'automne, splendide les reflets, bravo
Philippe (11836) 2007-02-08 15:25
Hi, Tan. You've used the left shore of the lake very well to lead us to the abrupt wall of the Totesgebirge. The boat shed on the left adds depth to the picture and the colours of the trees somme vivid touches. The reflections on the dark water are very nice.
(I think there are two stains in the sky above the mountain ridge)
Angelillo (9374) 2007-02-08 17:02
Amazing landscape and shot. It's quality is extraordinary, the sharpen, the natural colors... I like the very good reflection in this clear water, and the compo. Truly beautiful!
Ann75 (0) 2007-02-08 17:15
What an amazing shot! It begins with the reflection on the water leading to the colourful trees and followed by the mountain peaks. Great POV, beautiful composition and lovely details! The lighting is excellent as well. Well done, Tan!
alvaraalto (9458) 2007-02-08 17:46
Lovely picture of great clearness. The impressionistic reflection in th water is fascinating. The colours are lovely too.
Tue (34478) 2007-02-08 18:38
Gorgeous view over this lake. The reflections, a little bit distorted, are really beautiful and the colours are also very attractive. Great work, very well done!
singuanti (15250) 2007-02-08 21:36
Hi Tan. I'm surprised you were able to wait so long before posting this! The reflections are about as good as they can possibly get. You had a good light which easily illuminated all areas. Awesome shot Tan!
zeca (19762) 2007-02-08 22:02
A classic view, a beautiful picture! Nice colours and perfect sharpness! What a nice place...
Angshu (56750) 2007-02-08 23:06
Great landscape shot, almost like a paradise. Lovely contrast between the two mountain slopes here, one barren & the other with autumn colours. The placement of the cabin, off-centre works very well here. Great technicals as usual
PJE (20758) 2007-02-09 0:24
Tan I could almost give away an arm in exchange to visit half of all the places you have been to on this earth. Your capture here really shows how beautiful this earth is. I love this capture and hope to see more from this area. Lovely shot!
jmcl (14535) 2007-02-09 0:34
well let me see .. life's little checklist .. stunning peak .. beautiful reflection .. autumn colors ..
beautiful .. well seen wondrous moment ... given to us pretty as perfectly as I can imagine.
anesugur (18789) 2007-02-09 4:43
Ne kadar güzel bir yer burası.
Keşke bir kaç gün kalıp kafa dinleyebilsek.
Büyük şehir ve çalışma hayatı fazlasıyla sıkıyor.
Bu güzel fotoğraf için teşekkürler. Uğur
john_c (24666) 2007-02-09 16:12
Good use of the wide angle here, with fine reflections. Yes, some swan or quaint rowboat in the foreground would have been divine, but as it is the beauty is there, with good balance of shadows in the reflections. The building further balances the frame. This is a snug little spot where the world's cares seem far far away. Well captured, Tan.
Stepan (27210) 2007-02-10 3:13
This reflexion is amazing, with these incredible blue tones, as often in your gallery. Excellent framing too.
IgorDeleze (585) 2007-02-10 4:34
The automn colors and the reflexion are beautiful.
Didi (60586) 2007-02-10 7:56
Looks like an American landscape; well done for your good POV who gives a nice depht and good reflections on the lake.
I wish I were there !
Photo65Net (43120) 2007-02-10 8:12
Wonderful POV over this beautifui landscape.
peter1892 (1681) 2007-02-10 12:57
Hi Tan - another fine image, a beautiful moutain scene, the reflection on the water is really nice too. The splash of colour from the trees & that boathouse is excellent. The light is great in this shot, well done.
sebinho342 (19317) 2007-02-11 11:16
Hi "easy life Tan", those pictures are success garanteed ;) You masterize very well those strong and pure reflexion ... in austria this time, always on the road Tan, easy life Tan ;)
Great one, a pleasure to watch it
cbrman (21675) 2007-02-11 12:35
Très belle vue sur ce lac aux sublimes couleurs automnales !
Les reflets sont superbes et la maison au bords du lac donne une très belle touche à ta photographie !
bakes888 (18499) 2007-02-12 3:37
Hi Tan. This is indeed a beautiful scene and you are a TE pioneer of sorts. You have a bit of dirt on your sensor or lens that shows up as a dark area top right, easily cloned out though. Beautifully captured and you hit the weather spot on. Thanks for sharing.
tonyking (1612) 2007-02-12 4:34
You´ve done it again. This photo belongs on a postcard or a high quality book. It´s such a beautiful scene and you´ve done a fantastic job of capturing it.
The colours are amazing and the composition helps enhance the peaceful mood of the scene. The quality here is absolutely perfect and the way you´ve controlled the light looks really great too.
I have one question about the sky. Was it manipulated? It looks a little too perfect and the colours don't seem to be an exact match for the reflection on the water. Whether they are or not, it doesn't really matter that much because it's such a fantastic pic.
Excellent work, my friend.
jrj (34843) 2007-02-12 5:27
What a setting Tan and a good 'proof' that you also had some top weather on your travel. This one perfect as well in the compo as in the result of the grand landscape in the perfect, fair weather. A plesure to see this great place.
biswarup (718) 2007-02-12 11:53
This is a great shot with a nice reflection. The lighting and colors are great with good sharpness and detail.

Uzun bir aradan sonra merhaba Tan,
Yine dunyanin dort bir yanindan resimler goruyorum. Bu cektigin hani takvim sayfalarinda olur ya onlara benziyor. Renkler, netlik, goldeki yansima, hepsi cok guzel.
Butun resimlere bakmam zaman alacak ama olsun, zevkle.
s_a_s_h_a (607) 2007-02-13 2:21
What a fantastic shot of this amazing place. The reflections in the lake and colors are magical.
ruisc_pt (10892) 2007-02-14 12:53

Je constate que cela fait un petit moment que je n'avais pas visité ta galerie, et toujours autan de belles choses.
Ici la parfaite image automnale, en lus au bord de l'eau ce qui augmente son intérêt
pady (4800) 2007-02-16 14:46
There's a lot of choice in your gallery to leave some note that I didn't visit everything yet. So today my preference goes for this one.
A very nice composition with a great pov and nice autumn colors
JPlumb (3159) 2007-02-20 1:34
Hi Tan, this is very beautiful. If it hadn't been labeled, I might have guessed it came from one of the small lakes in Alberta or Ontario. You've composed this well with the cottage and mountains reflecting off the water. Coloured leaves in the fall are always a big seller.
sergio1 (12152) 2007-02-20 6:42
Great landscape and Perfect work. Magnific place my friend.
plimrn (21344) 2007-02-25 9:14
I actually prefer the little house on the lake with the sailboat pulled up on the beach to the swan; they encourage me to imagine living here. The bright autumn colors and the perfect reflection of the steep rock face all add to making this a photo truly deserviing of each of those critiques and favorites. HLJ, Pat

pboehringer (770) 2007-03-29 19:45
Breathtaking view, Tan. It seems to me that you are the photography Dr. Faust that made a pact with the devil. Wherever you go you already have the perfect weather conditions and the right angle to achieve the deep blue effect of your circular polarizing filter.
livinitout (942) 2007-04-12 5:49
Good take on the reflection. The colours work well, they seem alive. The reds in the trees are especially noticable. There is an interesting contrast between the colours on the left, red and yellow, and those on the right a bit more dark and gray.Nice
dias (123) 2007-05-10 17:54
magnifica foto muito bela paisagem
balatrek (7455) 2007-06-10 11:02
Fantastic landscape, I like this place, beautiful light and perfect reflections, the image has a great composition, balanced and of good depth, without a doubt a place that I would like to visit.
