I have a love affair with the Volcano '' THE LANIN '' I call her my volcano standing over 3,700 metres high she can be seen from so far afield around the southern regions of Argentina - one can be driving around the countryside looking at the views & then SUDDENLY this MAJESTIC Volcano rises up in front of you - on this occasion my husband & I were camping by this beautiful lake & had no idea that we would sight her.
In this image I would say the Volcano was around 60 klm West of where we were.

complimenti per lo scatto, molto bello.
Ottimo il taglio verticale, da molta profondità e la composizione è ben fatta, i fili che riflettono sull'acqua movimentano l'immagine e in tutto il blu, la vetta innevata risplende al sole.

Bonjour, chère Dawn,
Il émane de cette composition un sentiment de sérénité et de beauté.
Un cadrage fort bien pensé et présenté.
J'apprécie comme il se doit.

This is just beautiful with a phenomenal subject range with no part of the image being empty or dead. The DOF is fabulous and the the composition, as also the choice of format, are just perfect with the eye, continuing to explore upwards from the pelasant FG through to the beautiful COI which is perfectly placed to finally capture the attention. Very well done indeed and, albeit belated, a very happy New Year to you too.

A beautiful landscape composition dominated by these lush blue tones. The snow-capped volcano looks lovely against that clear sky. The image has immense depth and superb clarity. The pebbles seen through the clear waters in the foreground are a definite plus giving the composition interest across the frame.

Hola dear Dawn
Welcome back from your travels, it seems South Aus and NSW were amazing. But here we have the beautiful (and slightly cooler) Argentina. The vertical frame is well-chosen. The silvery blue tones are wonderful and I love how we can see the stones in the FG through the limpid water. The effect of the reeds and their reflections are the icing on the cake. Well done.
Un abrazo and I hope you're not melting from the heat like I am

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. Tu as saisi une grande partie du lac ce qui donne beaucoup de profondeur à l'image, le tout pointant vers ce pic blanc au fond.

Lep pogled na jezero i planine ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i perspketiva, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst o mestu, kompozicija, lepo pokazana planina vulkana sa snegom.
Nice view of the lake and mountains ...
Good image sharpness, contrast, and perspketiva, beautiful colors.
Good article on the site, compositions, beautifully demonstrated volcano mountain with snow.
All the best.

This is stunning, Dawn.
Transparent water, perfect snowy cone-shape mountain on far, and fine lake scenery.
Blue tone achieved from bright sky aloft.
Pleasent to look at, DOF superb.
I will add the 1 missing to what Gus gave you...(that is 100 from me).

cornejo (18088) 2013-01-08 9:51
Hi Dawn, very good picture of the beautiful view of the mountain snow, with lovely lake and underwater rocks in the foreground. Pretty interesting and very well composed image. Lovely and interesting with very good quality work, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good day and happy week.
Best regards and best wishes from the south of Spain.

such a tranquil place, isn't it? Perfect for meditation and contemplation. The wonderfully blue waters with the rare reeds and the sleeping volcano in the background are the epitome of serenity. Very beautiful picture!
danos (74020) 2013-01-08 22:19
nice the view as the presentation of the place with the snowy peak of the backdrop Mt. to be the eye catching of the scene.I like the view of the foreground lake with the wild grass to create a beautiful optical effect.
Nicou (97727) 2013-01-08 23:00
Grandiose payasage et compo avec cette montagne en triange en fond tout en blanc et ce bleu avec les roseaux qui ressorte sublimes.
Bravo et amitié

very nice landscape from Argentina. Good vertical composition. Amazing blue dominate. Photo I like.
Have a great New Year 2013!
Didi (48930) 2013-01-09 9:26
Interesting view with deep foreground
In this case I take an horizontal picture with a low position to give more depht in the foreground.
A good gymnastic for back troubles :)
Best wishes for 2013
ACL1978 (5783) 2013-01-09 12:56
Impressive range to this shot, Dawn - from the stones under the surface, up close, to the picture-perfect volcano in the distance, with everything sharp and nicely exposed. The mist and atmosphere creates a nice and increasing blue tinge the further back in the frame you go. And those reeds, appearing as if out of nowhere as they blend perfectly into their reflections, are a great central element. Nice work!
pierrefonds (48353) 2013-01-09 14:47
The distance between the small rocks and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The poinbt of view is showing the details and colors of the mountains. The lioght has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (26281) 2013-01-09 19:50
A simple beauty in limited color scheme but you have exploited within the space constraint to your advantage. Making use of the reeds is wise choice as strong anchor adding a finer definition to the mid fg while the eye is obvisouly glued to the white snow peak at the same time. An eyecatching and the lighting is great, the water textures further add to a quite an alluring picture indeed. Very well taken and presented. Congrats, TFS
Silvio1953 (98183) 2013-01-10 1:02
Ciao Dawn, lovely composition with tall volcan full of snow, fascinating reflections, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Robert1969 (6238) 2013-01-10 1:21
Difficult to judge.
I like the open space(great composition) in
the picture: that makes it nice calmenss and
the vertical position and the layers creates
a nice depth. Also great is the light
What I don't like (sorry, but I think that
I must be honest) is the whitebalance/color
in the picture: it's too blue (even the
mountains are too blue). On the other hand,
I also know that making pictures in the
mountains is one of the most difficult
subjects and the sky had at that moment no
extra's (no clouds)
My advice: try B&W. You cover the sky and
you emphasize extra the calmness in the
picture and you make the picture "more
josepmarin (55051) 2013-01-10 4:27
the blue tones provide an interesting chromatic intensity to this image, I like the great depth that you have caught in this beautiful landscape of the lake, with the majestic presence of the volcano covered with snow in background.
The contrast is magnificent, and we can enjoy a few nice reflections on the water, which occupies two thirds of the framing in an effective structure of the composition.
A beautiful work.
Kielia (20463) 2013-01-10 7:55
this is a fantastic impression of this characteristic lake including the volcano! You took a great advantage of this fantastic light that created such incredibly blue colors. I also like the composition. My compliments!
s_lush (15590) 2013-01-11 7:23
Such a composition, with the very close foreground and very distant background, makes great depth and nice air perspective to your picture. Very well composed, masterfully captured and interestingly narrated in the note!
eldancer1 (17064) 2013-01-11 9:51
Beautiful landscape! Simple but effective composition even though it look so cold. I like the reeds coming out of the clear water. Awesome colors. Well done, tfs.
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-01-11 10:17
Wonderful cool tone of the landscape. I think there is no need to remove the blue tone of the picture since it is what you see in your eyes in that situation. Excellent atmosphere.
Have a nice weekend,
jhm (122458) 2013-01-13 4:29
A wonderful clear water, we see perfect the stones under water in foreground.
Also the nice white top of the mountain, with a little bit reflections in water, between the vegetation.
Perspective and depth are absolutely nice done.
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
TopGeo (37994) 2013-01-13 7:38
Hello Dawn, lovely composition with tall volcan full of snow, fascinating reflections, I like the peacefull and relaxing atmosphere here, I also enjoy the beauties of our nature. Great colors and reflections on the water. The reflections on the water of the lake are assets to the composition Well done Best regards

A beautiful landscape composition dominated by these lush blue tones.
Fantastic composition and presentation.
elenimavrandoni (5789) 2013-01-16 12:49
Hello Dawn, very impressive volcano and natural scenery, amazing sharpness and clarity, the transparency of the water is a great detail showing the pebbles!
Your love affair with the volcano gave us this beautiful picture to admire!
jacquest (14152) 2013-01-20 5:16
The distance on the water leads the eye to the snowy peak and goves much deepness to the image. I like the transparency of the water and the rocks showing underneath. The blue tones in the composition are beautiful to see.
jmdias (45804) 2013-01-24 15:37
I visited the region near this place but not the area near of this beautiful volcano. excellent view. the framing is amazing with all the elements well positioned, including the transparent waters and pebbles. nice job.
HimalAnda (5630) 2013-01-29 2:01
That's a very nice place, very peaceful. It should have been a pleasure to stay there.
I like the blue tones of this picture.
knips (172) 2013-01-29 14:32
beautiful composition and play with tones of blue and light.
Amazing volcano with snow cap.
