It was a very hot day in Norway, yes I was surprised, Norway can be very hot :-) and after visit a fresh glacier sited in Fjærland, village with only 300 habitants, we just find this incredible scene... Norway is really an impressive country full of beautiful and dramatic landscapes for make happy anyone who like to take shots.

I'm absolutely a "huge" Norway fan! And your lovely picture reminds me great moments...
Nice shot but I wish you had cropped out the very first left part, just right of the little tree, it looks a bit messy there.

Beautiful composition as always. It is hard to manage midday light shots but you pulled it off with excelent colors and constrast.
evilren (1395) 2003-06-10 14:54
didn't know norway is such a beautiful country,remind me a bit of new-zealand. The boat that's located between the reflections + the small houses on the left makes it a good composition.

This is a magic shot indeed...evrything works perfect...In one word: GREAT!
PiotrS (443) 2003-06-10 15:20
Beautiful shot, it looks almost like a fantasy land. Agree with Porteplume about a slight crop on the right, but apart from that it's a great composition and perfect exposure.
By the way, did you use Neat Image on this? It almost looks too smooth to be true.

Lovely picture. I agree that a bit more cropping on the left would help some, but in the end, it is just a great picture as is.
AdrianW (2274) 2003-06-10 18:59
Brilliant shot! The reflection of the boat makes it perfect :-D

This is a wonderful shot...all has been said already. I agree that the reflection makes the shot happen...very well done.
Abocc (3300) 2003-06-10 23:23
Well done! Congratulations

Great shot, wonderful reflection.
dovi (1068) 2003-06-11 3:15
Really great shot of a very different and gorgoues landscape we do not see at this part of the world.
Personally I think that I would have cropped the sky a little bit above the right peak(to bring the main object: the boat and it's reflection to the center of the image) and the left as was mentioned before! ;)
joesull (128) 2003-06-11 14:22
Wonderful composition and colors. The reflections,especially the boat's are really striking. Hope things are going well in Banyoles.
helstor (113) 2003-06-13 17:36
Great shot from Fjærland! Technically good and nice composition with the shoreline leading the eye into the picture
highlander (71) 2003-06-14 4:19
Perfect shot ! I love it !
You made great use of light, composition and reflection.
Darren (6823) 2003-06-16 10:31
Very, very nice. such a beautiful and tranquil setting, and you have caught it very well. As alternatives, not improvements, I would like to see a similar shot aiming slightly lower, so there is even more foreground, and slightly less sky. To do that one however, may require you to find a slightly hire vantage point. Also, I would love to see this in wider angle, especially showing more to the right of the frame. Again, these are alternatives, not improvements. This shot is great as it is.
nmess (2301) 2003-06-16 21:30
What a nice shot... I don't think I'm good enough to find fault with your work here.
migueleloi (264) 2003-06-21 10:09
I love this picture. Beautiful landscape, the houses and boat colors... yes, this could be a fantasy land...

Unbelievable beautiful scenery and very well captured! Colors are great, composition too.

Norge ÄR vackert! Norway IS bautiful! Best proven this way except from beeing there of course!

The reflection of the boat and sky is what makes this shot for me. Excellent exposure.
strangiato (10) 2004-05-22 14:56
This is excellent. There is so much to see here. The mountains, the sky, the reflections, the coloured houses....it is a very nice scene and very well taken.

What a place!
The photo is so beautiful that we almost can feel the atmosphere of the place, we almost can hear the silence of this landscape!
I love it!

fantastique cadrage dans les fjords Norvégiens que je ne connai qu'en hiver.
Bravo pour la lumière.
hexagon (284) 2005-07-28 4:26
Absolutely wonderful picture, it's oh so quiet... I don't no if a different cropping would have improve the composition. I'm posting a workshop let me know what you think

bibs69 (3251) 2005-08-23 9:41
Oh Yes, Xevi !!
Never gone to Norway but maybe I should.
This picture is great. I specially love the colors and the reflexion int the water.
Great job !!
rbcy1974 (20758) 2005-08-23 9:54
Espectacular este paisage con una luz y mescla de colores muy interesante. Pienso que cortando un poco de cielo se le daria mas una sensacion mas intima.
LSH (174) 2006-10-11 7:56
Cette photo respire la quiétude, la tranquilité. Une très belle prise, bon cadrage, bonne profondeur de champs, belles couleurs.

I was in Norway last July and yes, it was hot too! I loved the nature there, the landscapes are incredible, and this shot really gives the feeling of the place. Thanks for reminding me this wonderful place!
bartekp (4746) 2010-06-22 4:14
Nice and 'clean' composition. I loke that POV and colors.
Have a nice evening
Merou (4726) 2010-09-10 15:19
I hope to have the opportunities to discover landscape like this one. Your photo is realy attractive. The boat seems like a toy
agulberk (3794) 2010-10-09 19:42
such as tale of a place and
as if it is drawn and painted by brush of Leonardo winci
painstakingly created by Creater
