Spring will be upon us very soon, but here in Vancouver the rain will continue :)
With today being March 1st, and the seasons about the change in the near future, i went looking back into my Autumn collection.
Here is another photo from Stanley Park with sailboats, but its a view point that I have never posted on TE before.
Now i know the photo didn't really call for HDR, but you know me! I just like to practice it and have fun with it. Hope you enjoy the photo

A special title for a picture that let us admire beautiful autumn colours.
Looking at the picture I think at different seasons. The sailboats in the foreground rather refer to more pleasant temperatures as in spring or in summer. The wooded area points clearly to the fall and on the mountains range it looks to be winter. OK, probably there's a lot more snow in wintertime.
Despite the overcast sky the picture is very clear so that the countless masts of the boats are beautifully reflected in the water.
Overall a very pleasant sight.
Best regards, Paul

This picture is striking beautiful. I love the scenery and an amazingly beautiful reflection. Love the colors, sharpness, clarity, pov. Magnificent photo job. I like to try sometimes picture doing in HDR. If I can ask you Craig, what program you will use? Perfectly well done. I really like it. Tfs.
All the best and have a greatWE,

Such a beautiful painting-like photograph!
Very pleasant-looking and inviting image! So relaxing!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, pp, slim black borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
I love seeing those reflections, the colors of the trees and the mountains in the bg!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week-end,

A very nice one from your neck of the woods.
I think your photo is very representative of the stunning scenery around Stanley Park. I have never been in Vancouver during the autumn season, and I enjoy the added beauty that warm colours bring in this metallic blue scene.
Always impressive to think that all this nature is the dramatic backdrop of an urban area like Vancouver; difficult to beat! The only other place that I can think of, where the city is set against such an incredible display of nature is Cape Town here in South Africa, stuck between the sea and the mountains - although not with snowcapped summits, but rather splendid vegetation.
I like the mood of your shot, with a touch of melancholy, and the reflection like an impressionist painting.

Love these marina with fine looking boats and reflections like water color painting.
Thanks and kind regards.

I did not realise that it was HDR until I read your note - it has been subtly applied so well done. The air and water look very clear giving a lovely brightness to the image. The autumnal trees are an important element, just adding some nice colour. Great sharpness and exposure - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

L'effet HDR est très discret mais très efficace, donnant du caractère à cette jolie vue automnale aux belles teintes.

The light dusting of snow adds interest, & I like the symmetrical fg reflections. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the yachts. The green hues of the trees add a nice warm cold colour contrast against the blue tones. Tfs!

Hello Craig - This is really beautiful. The light is superb and the shot has a lightness of touch I find very appealing. The stand of trees inject a super colour contrast to the blue-greys of the FG and sky. I am trying to get my bearings, which mountains can I see in the distance? Warm regards Rosemary

As usual, your notes are very optimistic ! Whta's unusual in this composition is the presence of the mountains in the background in a marina-style shot - very nice. Overall, the details are excellent and refreshing.
TFS and have a great WE,

A fine combination of autumn and winter in the same scene as the mountains in the bg are covered in snow at the top. Nice autumnal colours in the forest and fine effect of the reflected masts. Great work:)

very nice composition with the boats reflecting in fg, the autumn colors and big mountains in bg.

Good to have spring just around the corner after this long and dreary winter. We to had the first day of spring finally.
Lovely scene with those moored boats on such a clear water, great colors in the forest and the mountain range behind.
have a good sunday
By the way, we have planned a trip to Vancouver island in June this year, we hope to see lots of Orcas and maybe even bears.

We have spring here without rain, just sun! Hope you'll get the same treatment from the natura in the end.
Have a fine week.

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful nature around Stanley Park. It's harmonized well by calm bay with sailboats, trees with autumnal tints and snowy mountain of backdrop. And, the reflection projected to the water draws out an additional good effect in this image.
