In keeping with the previous two entries, I offer up a final photo using the same type of effect…this time however, it’s a rising sun. It pains me to wake up early for work each day, but I seem to have no problem doing it on vacation when I want to photograph something…go figure!? :)
Another instance here of combining a couple of different lens mounted filters to create the color in the sky. The morning light wasn’t as dramatic as the sunset’s, but it still helped to produce similar tones, albeit a little less intense. The sunrise and view over Lake Maggiore was well worth the effort to be up at the crack of dawn!
Thanks for taking a look…and a happy weekend to all!

it's a very beautiful picture, I like the hazy light on the mountains and the serene atmosphere. Looking down at the buildings along the shoreline you can really feel the scale of the place. The filter works quite well here bringing in energy, warmth and brightness to the scenery. Although the color of the water still betrays its artificial origin:)
Lovely work, my compliments.

An impressive shot. A very beautiful place. I like the soft and warm natural colours here. The choice of point of view in this image very well done. The clarity, sharpness and lights superbly managed. Very well done.

so this is a Tobacco filter you used here? I'm not too educated on filters, I don't really use them.
well, whatever the visual effect is, the final product came out splendidly.
The contrast from the orange/rust to the blues on the bottom is really attractive.
a fine layered scene,
well worth getting up for!

another great example how to use Cokin filter and how to create something unforgettable.I really love the sky here-it makes the atmosphere here so tranquil and pleasant.The final result you achieved is spectacular!
Apart from the sky I´m attracted by natural beauty of this place-the lake nestled among the mountains and so nicely located town.Must have been a pleasure to visit this region and a good place to relax.
Have a nice sunday

I like this effect of the Tobacco filter. Very artistic photo. The title reminds me the famous song of Deep Purple. But that events were on the Geneva lake ))
Best wishes, my friend,
I will write to you from Spain next time.

Good morning Jason,
A marvelous outcome and perferct use of the filter.
You were definitly right about your assumption about morning sky's, and the result here show good skill application.
Manged to creat a fine contrast by the mild lake surface, and green slops, to the golden (cloudy)sky above. Alladded with the grandeur of the mountains asurround.
Enjoy a nice sunday,

Very spectacular panorama in lovely colors. I like the way you've composed the image, well done!

I have never used a tobacco filter but can see what a remarkable effect it has produced here. Your composition of trees, lake and mountains is very well conceived in its own right but the sky is just amazing! It makes me think of space science fiction, when something cataclysmic is about to happen!
Have a lovely Sunday,

Now that looks as taken out of the cable car up to Cardada, isn't it?
The view from up there over the Lago Maggiore is stunning as you show us here so beautifully. I like the haze over the mountains but I am not so sure about the tobacco filter applied. It is a tad to strong for my taste.
have a good sunday

A great pov on this beautiful landscape, good depth with the diagonal and interesting result for this sky, tfs.

Your past few shots seem to be a nice little journey across the colour of a few countries, nice one :)
I love the golden tones of this, and especially how the contrast with the trees. I would hardly notice the buildings due the colours being so strong, and makes it a natural shot, even though there is a town there.
I'm fascinated by the large ripple in the water, looks like something just dropped below the surface very quickly. Perhaps Nessie was on holidays, and spotted your camera at the last minute!

J'aime me levée tôt aussi en vacances...profiter du levé du soleil, comme présenter sur cette image aux couleurs orangée sous le graphisme des montagnes, un beau moment et une réalisation très jolie

A very harmonious and pleasant image. I like very much the view to the background mountains, natural sky colors, light reflections in quiet water and the depth with which we are able to enjoy the view along the lake to the mountains in BG. The play of light and shadow, the beautiful soft colors and their effective contrasts, the neat framing and the delightful atmosphere of the quiet water have produced a very elegant image. Well done.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

nice this colour tints of the sky during the new day.I like the whole environment that created from the rising sun as spread on the whole area.Excellent view as presentation.

J'aime beaucoup la composition de cette image dans ce format.Ici le ciel crée une excellente complémentarité de couleurs avec les dominantes bleues au centre de l'image.
mcmtanyel (10429) 2014-03-06 12:31
The colors of the sky are lovely. The lake makes the photo even more attractive. The combination of rising/setting sun and a body of water is always a winner, TFS!
