Hi Tan. I do love the colours in your work and this shot is no exception. It's a rich tapestry of reds, orange, yellows, blue, silver...The composition captures the wide spaces and the immensity of the mountain ranges. Beautiful morning light. Great -as usual.Regards. Klaudio.

Well... what to say!!!?? That is another spectacular landscape photos of yours... the reflection filled river provides a strong FG... and the short focal lens effect is superb... color tones and textures are excellent... simply amazing...
Cormac (26563) 2007-03-01 22:05
Great image! This is perfectly composed, with the diagonal making a good reflection as well as leading the way toward the town and the tower. Great light too, and that tower really makes the shot. Excellent!
sarahnatalie (695) 2007-03-01 22:13

Hi Tan. If I were you I would have posted that 5 minutes after I took it! :) That's a stunning shot with perfect composition, saturation, contrast and DOF. The sky helps take this to a different level. Wonderful shot Tan.
bakes888 (18499) 2007-03-01 23:30
Hi Tan. You have excelled yourself here. Great photo. Beautiful composition with excellent leading lines and diagonals. I particularly like the sky you have captured in this shot and the way it repeats in the reflection. Thanks for sharing.

Bun Di Captain,
State of the art 10-22 photo where your angle maximizes the wide angle dynamism and the autumn colors add contrasting warm touches, needless to say I like such pictures very much !

One more brilliantly saturated autumn colours shot from up there. Reflection of the church is just on the right place. Direction of light is optimal.
desman (2220) 2007-03-02 3:12
j'aurai aime y être et m'y promener, c'est magnifique.
je n'arrive pas à reconnaître ce qui surnage dans l'eau. Quoi que ce soit, je trouve que ça fait un peu tache et l'aurai effacé. Tant que j'y suis dans les critiques, le ciel m'apparaît également un peu étriqué.

Looks like you had some 10mm fun here! :o)
This is a perfect Swiss postcard (nothing negative in the word 'postcard') with beuatiful autumn colors and a wonderful sky filled with those fluffy little clouds. The still water also enabled you to cath this wonderful reflection of the church's belfry. Just perfect!
dkeus31 (27735) 2007-03-02 5:47
Superb image of one of the beautifullest villages I have visited.
The fall colors and the sky makes it to a winner.

Beautiful composition ! Colors are great and the sky texture is very interesting, well sharp too. Cheers,
john_c (24662) 2007-03-02 11:11
All of your shot posted thus far from Switzerland in the autumn are outstanding. Here the angled perspective works so well, with fine reflections and good proportions of water, foreground bank and sky. The tower is bathed in warm light and all about the glow of a crisp clear autumn imbues the scene. A first rate capture.
Paolo (41222) 2007-03-02 11:24
Hi Tan, great shot, using the reflection as main point and with wonderful autumnal colours on the trees and the grass.
excellent POV, quality and light.

I like you composition with canal on he foreground and mountains on the backgrouns. Wonderful weather conditions and fantastic clouds!
kevinos (7397) 2007-03-02 12:58
This has a wonderful painterly quality, Tan. The perspective has a perfect quality that is almost impossible to achieve in photography. I suspect that you must do a great deal of planning before you make such an image. Regards Kevin
Didi (57250) 2007-03-02 13:06
Very interesting perspective on the canal.
A good composition surrounded by autumnal colours.
Very nice 3/4 back lights who gives a nice relief in the landscape.

Super composition Tan. The colours contrast and sharpness are also excellent. A wonderful scene. If you print this then maybe clone out the branches bottom left.
Philippe (11836) 2007-03-02 17:10
Hi, Tan. A very good composition with the stream flowing in a digoanl line into the picture. The reflections in the water are very nice and the autumn colours are splendid.

As usual, I don't know what to write, as I think it is absolutely fabulous and perfect.
worldcitizen (7057) 2007-03-02 19:56
Wow! This photo has so many great elements: the morning light, the wonderful patterned sky, the clear reflection in the canal. I like the view of the town and the mountains behind it. Really beautiful view!
carper (96) 2007-03-03 7:20
a very nice shot Tan,
I know for sure with a little cropping and photoshop you can made it perfect, but thats personal, the view is good, the reflection is good and the light is fine, good photo job here.
alvaraalto (6177) 2007-03-03 16:30
This picture is really of an amazing beauty. Everything is perfect!
The reflection, the composition, the beautiful pastel colours in the mountains and the clear colours in the church and trees and as finish in touch the lovely sheep clouds.
Tue (27696) 2007-03-03 18:14
Beautiful view of this village. The autumnal colours are fantastic and I love the reflections in the water. Also the clouds look wonderful. A very good photo, thanks for sharing!
balatrek (7455) 2007-03-04 10:26
Beautiful landscape, I like the composition, the diagonal that draws up the river is perfect and their reflections are incredible, the clouds are the perfect complement for this work, the light and the colours are well balanced and create a fantastic Autumnal atmosphere. Great shot!
jeanguy (686) 2007-03-04 10:47
Hello Tan, i just don't know what to say. It's close to perfect : colours, reflexion, framing.. Great work.

Stepan (27210) 2007-03-05 2:27
That's typical from the Alps but it's so well captured. You were lucky with that sky and that reflection. Heady and lovely. Great shot.
Angshu (55892) 2007-03-05 3:57
Amazing perspective, not your usual high POV..Love the diagonal of the canal & the reflections especially of the church steeple. The light is wonderful & creates these wonderful colours.

Belles couleurs automnale
tonyking (1612) 2007-03-05 20:15
How are us mere mortals supposed to keep up with the incredibly high standard of your photography? I mean to say, we could smear your lens with vaseline and tie one hand behind your back and you'd probably STILL have better photos! ;)
This is a beautifully composed scene. All the elements are well placed and they balance the photo so nicely. I also love the reflection, those clouds, the beautiful, subtle colours, and the amazing amount of detail you've captured.
However you look at it, this is first class photography. Superb work, my friend.
sabyasachi1212 (19773) 2007-03-06 6:57
Your pictures are good enough for any travel magazine. Other than the snow, if you think of Switzerland this is what one would visualise. Wonderful setting.

pboehringer (770) 2007-03-09 10:27
very remarkable descriptive photography with a wonderful 3D impression. How did you achieve that? I have the feeling that I'm standing right in the middle of this landscape and knowing the place quite well and even started walking around to get to places in the small village of Sils.
pedrocarmo (1295) 2007-03-09 16:59
This is what I call an excelent photo.
The colours are superb, the reflextions on the river are great.

This was a featured destination on the TE Homepage and I just had to comment onb this beautiful composition although I'm sure I won't be able to say anything new, given all the prior comments. I particularly like the angle at which you framed the canal, the warm low-light tones and the storm-brewing sky and its reflection in the canal. HLJ, pat

Wooooh,wwwoooooh and again woooh, Hi Tan, you made a marveleous image from this wonderful and very picturesque place.
It looks so wonderful, so impressive.
Lightness, colors,sharpness and depth are very nice.
Composed with the reflaction is really great.
benkrut (2407) 2007-04-07 15:56
All elements in this picture work perfectly with each other. The creek is settled well in the composition and allows the church and the clouds to make the reflection. The mountains in the background and the colours of autumn give additional mood to this scene.
Have a great Easter!
InasiaJones (31498) 2007-04-08 16:00
I was away for a while so there’s some catching up to do in your gallery...
This one is stunning! What a tremendous sky you’ve caught here, just perfect to make it double with the reflection. The surface of the water is so calm that you’ve got a real mirror to reflect this marvelous scene.
The colors are gorgeous, with red spots here and there, blending perfectly with the surrounding ocres and greens. The mountain peaks are striking.
A real brilliant composition.

Which depth in this photograph, it is extraordinary. Very beautiful panorama on this superb and picturesque landscape of Switzerland. Qualities of the image are undeniable and I appreciate in particular clearness, it is very pleasant and gives a beautiful effect of relief. The reflection is of any beauty. Cheer and thank you Tan.
With all my friendships,

Always interesting to see which pictures pop up on my start screen of TrekEarth. I don't react on those quickly, but this one is a beauty I could not pass by without any reaction. The clouds, the church, the church and the little patches of blue sky in the background all wonderfully reflected in the calm stream. Very nice work.
