One of the most beautiful views I have ever seen in my country - horseshoe bend of the Vltava river under the Orlík reservoir.
The viewpoint Altán is quite difficult to find despite the well maintained system of tourist trails and this was my second trial, and I got a bit lost, but it was worth of the extra 30 minutes of searching in the bushes in the tropical heat and quite difficult terrain.
The picture stitched in photoshop - I used 4 separate pictures.

We appreciate the hard work and effort to create this attractive scene of Vitava's horseshoe bend, surrounded by dense landscaping.

Hi Dear Romana,
You've written an interesting note and I'm glad that you managed to find this place, albeit after quite a struggle in sweltering heat! I'm just pleased that you didn't get so lost that you walked over this high cliff!!
This is a spectacular vista and you have done extremely well to capture he full extent of it - and even more impressive that you have managed to stitch together four separate shots without any hint of any "joins" anywhere at all.
A lovely, almost symmetrical, composition with gorgeous light and lovely rich colours, perfect exposure, excellent "stitching" and exquisite details and sharpness.
P.S. I have added a note to you on the forum. But what size did you upload this image? Was it wider than just 800 pixels? It would certainly look much more impressive were it just a little larger.

Very beautiful landscape!
I miss a bit more of sharpness, but I do enjoy the natural colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition!

This is a nicely composed shot of the horseshoe bend. The addition of the rocks and brush in the foreground add depth to the scene. The lighting and colors are great and you have presented nice detail.
