The Merced River (pronounced mer-SED), in the central part of the U.S. state of California, is a 145-mile (233 km)-long tributary of the San Joaquin River flowing from the Sierra Nevada into the Central Valley. It is most well known for its swift and steep course through the southern part of Yosemite National Park, and the world-famous Yosemite Valley. The river's character changes dramatically once it reaches the foothills and the lowlands, becoming a slow-moving waterway meandering through irrigated fields. (From Wikipedia)

nice the view of the vertical format with the Merced river to penatrates the whole scene lead-in the eye on the far end of the image.I like the reflections as the light and the colour management of the shot.

The vertical format suits very well to this composition. The reflections are beautiful and the image has a lot of deepness.

Marvelous nature, collected well with good light and shining colors and contrast.
Conveyed a calm ambiance of the natural reserve.

a very beautiful and pure natural environment seen from a great point of view that includes many of its exquisite features in a well composed vertical frame. Depth and perspective are superb drawing us into the opening between the trees. The lighting conditions were very tricky and demanding, the light is very strong and the colours a bit faded in the background. Details are well defined all over the frame, though, and the lucid blue flanked by the deep reflections is very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

a difficult cross-light, with an a bit complicated management of the exposure, which you have solved with efficiency.
The landscape is splendid, the light is balanced, the reflections on the river are woderful, and the colors are natural.
It is a nice work.

The colors are very pretty. The trees in the forefront gives the idea that I am hiding behind the tree peeking at the river. I do like the perspective and the reflections.
Have a nice weekend,
