Hello Janos, excellent photo of this wonderful lake view, nice contrast with the red canoe. Lovely technically very good and image quality, but I think is a bit tilted to the left. Anyway not take away the beauty of this great and beautiful work. Congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Best regards and best wishes.

Hallo Janos. Sehr schön. Blaue See, blauer Himmel, rotes Boot. Manche Leute mögen die leeren Gegenden, weil hier der Erholungswert besonders hoch ist. Das Foto erinnert mich an meinen Schwedenabstecher in diesem Jahr.
... und ein schönes Wochenende.

This is a very pleasant and beautiful view! The red kayak and the green plant are providing the only eye-catching elements in this otherwise completely blue picture. The kayak is excellently positioned at the third. There is a very peaceful and calm mood here!

This is a nice addition to your empty spaces theme. I went back and had a look at the other three. They are all very different to each other although the theme is constant. I like this for the parallel geometry and the red of the boat balanced by the green vegetation. I must say that in your series of four so far, I like empty spaces III the most.

I like the simplicity of this shot, and it conveyes very well the peaceful feeling one can get sitting on the rocks along this large lake. The red boat is very eye-catching in the composition and the inclusion of the green tree adds a nice touch of colour contrast. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling
