This was taken from the shore of Lake Loen, where we were camping overnight.
I have used contrast masking, neat image and modest sharpening.

Très beau, les couleurs, le cadrage et les mouvements de l'eau. Bravo !
richtersl (3546) 2003-09-13 9:11
I just love pictures like this! The setting is so tranquil and you've captured some wonderful glow in the sky with the rainbow.

Beatiful rainbow, lovely colour on the boat. A slight change in position to the left while taking the photograph, would move the rainbow nearer a fifth node and place the boat on a third, improving the apeal of your picture. This is a shot that would have benefitted from a landscape format.

Beautiful picture,i love the colours of the rainbow. nice and tranquil landscape picture.
dominique (11414) 2003-09-13 9:18
Impressing, there is much thing has to see on this photograph, very interesting and very good composition.

I like the color of the rainbow, it's nice

Saisir ce moment magique, c'est parfait.

Wonderful shot! The rainbow is so clear and colourful. I like the warm feel of the sun shining on the trees.
Eagle (522) 2003-09-13 10:20
Beautiful athmosperic image! I like the boys in the boat looking at the rainbow. The sky and the colors of the trees/rainbow are also beautiful.
angel (34) 2003-09-14 21:22
Très belle composition,bon cadrage et l'arc en ciel tout à fait élégante. Avez-vous trouvez le trésor qui si cache au pied de celle-ci??:)
padam (186) 2003-09-15 5:05
Very nice colors and scene, but the boat is a little bit too centered. I like the vertical continuity sky->mountains->trees->lake that arises thanks to the portrait format.
Chris (41) 2003-09-17 17:08
What a fantastic picture. It's just perfect.
pirulesco (1961) 2003-09-18 3:59
A near perfect photo! Congratulations!

This photo is superb, and it's the reason why we walk hours at the time with our camera...
ornis (1271) 2003-09-18 16:31
Brilliant! Composition works perfectly and everything is deeply interacting. One man and three children looking at the rainbow from the boat conveys a fairy tale atmosphere here. You also have everything in the landscape (sky, snow, sun, forest texture, water, reflections...) to make a beautiful picture, and you gathered these elements very well! Beautiful light on the boat too.
Gael (247) 2003-10-07 6:02
50/50 divided, as if the 2 parts were from 2 different pictures.
The beautiful link between water and the mountains : the sky, using its most beautiful artefact, a rainbow...
Nature is really astounding especially when a photograph can share such beautiful pictures.
AlainB (78) 2003-10-10 10:20
Je dirais que c'est simplement merveilleux.
Very very good picture!
Raven (22) 2003-10-18 3:34
The brilliance of this shot is not, in my opinon, the wonderful rainbow but the people in the boat and their undevided attention they give to this light phenomenon.
They look absolutely mesmerized!
Feel free to take a look at my question about rainbows.
emax (919) 2003-10-25 0:28
I have not seen yet a rainbow with so intensive colours. Beautiful imagine with people in boat which it watches the rainbow.
tworivers (573) 2003-11-08 22:09
what an exceptional image. there is even a hint of a second rainbow in the upper right corner. love that the reflection of the rainbow is crossing the boat in the water. lovely scenery and stunning shot.
WorldGuru (176) 2003-11-10 13:41
About the prettiest rainbow picture I've seen. Nice setting with the lake, boat, and mountains.
aferrao (1145) 2003-11-20 5:33
Amazing and perfect!
I have no more words for such a beauty!
Rhiannon (1728) 2003-11-21 9:34

kazan (779) 2003-12-08 10:26
This is a great photo Martin, wll done.
Perfect frame and light.
souyas (385) 2003-12-17 23:57
I was able to see the leg of a rainbow for the first time! It is wowowonderful!
Jipp (26) 2004-02-05 21:39
I must add that this shot is beautifull. :)
I think the 5 different levels/planes from bottom to top(les plans en francais) are what makes it so pleasant to look at. ie.the boat in calm water, the far away water, the green mountain, the rocky mountain and finally the sky, all linked by the rainbow and its reflection. They are all more interesting than the other.
It is so well composed and the main subject, the rainbow(or is it the boat i wouldn't know?), is so sharp! WOW my first favourite on TE.
paroy (318) 2004-04-04 21:27

danbachmann (1746) 2004-11-28 16:10
Stunning photograph Martin. You've got the horizon just right and the reflection in the water with people in the foreground. It looks like you had every bit of luck at the moment and all the skill to get the image.
ydarias (679) 2005-02-25 6:56
Perfect, with out comments
Leonie (8809) 2005-02-25 8:04
Hello Martin, just discovering this...fabulous!!! There is nothing more to say!! My congratulations!
Iarnvidsson (645) 2005-02-26 15:20
D'habitude les arc-en-ciel sont fades sur les photos, mais celui-là... wah!!! La présence du lac et de la barque font le reste! bravo!
bebel (7588) 2005-03-07 16:26
very nice shot and framed.
is it scanned from a slide or paper print ? nice postwork.
I found your photo because it was took with the same camera, rétinette kodak
devimeuxbe (58557) 2005-03-07 18:32
Thanks for this very very nice picture.
toma (151) 2005-07-04 10:50
It seems you know how to use your Kodak Retinette...
Amzing shot for a camera made in the 1960's. Congratulations!
hadas (92) 2005-08-23 9:23
nice colors, so beautiful
drixme (133) 2005-08-23 9:35
et y'avait-il vraiment un trésor au pied de l'arc en ciel ? le trésor ne serait il pas simplement cette vision ?
Albrecht (11281) 2005-09-07 14:21
Lucky you; right time, right place. Wonderful picture,great compo and colours. Well captured moment.

Merveilleux cet arc-en-ciel, une légende dit qu'il y a un trésor aux pieds de ceux ci ...
ici c'est la tache de lumière.
asajernigan (21132) 2006-12-31 13:52
Outstanding photo. The lighting here is very good with excellent color.
Your composition is great and the POV is fine.
jalowiec (81) 2007-01-02 10:25
The moment of taking the picture is really good. The family is as impressed as we are. Great picture!

This is what i call perfection
branley (3681) 2007-01-30 15:22
I feel honoured to bring this superb image into three figures. The light, colours, contrast are all great. Forget the rule of thirds, there's more to it than that. A magnificent capture.
Brian (3) 2007-04-15 22:57
I like the portrait format. The boat with its passengers right in the reflection is nice. Stunning photo via 1965.
Jeppo (17639) 2007-06-09 14:35
excellent shot. The rainbow is sooo real!
johanswart (2) 2007-08-13 14:00
Great photograph. It immediately cought my attention, because I've been there on holiday. I tried to make some nice photographs of the lake, but the lightning conditions weren't nearly as good as in your photograph. The boat in the front adds a nice idyllic element to it.
Moyano (163) 2007-09-25 15:07
The most magnificent rainbow capture i have ever seen! The boat makes it a great composition at the same time. Not sure what point was the focus set to.
madhumita_roy86 (2344) 2010-11-30 8:13
beautiful shot..... nice moment & lovely composition.....
danielz (82) 2010-11-30 8:39

fds (8138) 2010-12-18 7:14
fantastic rainbow with fantastic light
evarol (196) 2011-05-31 19:35
The faceless figures and the overall composition gives this photo a surrealist feel.
