Cuernos (horns) del Paine reflected on Lago Pehoe, taken from the bridge to a small island in the lake. The weather was not ideal that day, no rain but plenty of wind and overcast, this is before the wind started, taken in the morning. The lake surface here is in the shadow of the black mountains (out of frame) at right.
I've learned here that photographers would rather see a live cockroach in their salads than a centered horizon, but I tried cropping from top or bottom and did not like the results, so there it is.
At left is Cerro Paine Grande(highest peak 3050m.), at right side are Cuernos del Paine (Cuerno Principal 2600m.)

This shot is perfect despite you wrote that the weather was not ideal. The reflection is very clear, fantastic specially the green reflection of the gras; very good also the simmetry of the mountains with a "depression" in the middle of the photo. Serena

Always wonderful to see this kind of pictreus of such great places to be. Good compo and colours and the reflections in the lake are good.

Superb photograph playing on symmetry of the
reflection of the mountain in water.
The landscape is imposing like the photograph.

Beautiful scenery! Nice soft colours and reflections. For me a centered picture is good if the lower part is reflected upper part. Well done.
Thanks for share.

Very nice landscape, I especially like mirrors on the nearly calm water. Congratulations

Waouw, great mountain picture. The mountains are famous, the reclection is very nice, and I don't care about your centered horizon.

For my eyes, this is a good shot, no troubles about the centered horizon... why not...
AmiBe (6042) 2005-06-03 12:08
Beautiful symmetric shot, another great landscape.
Reflection is really nice. For this kind of shot, centered horizon don't disturb me.

Hi tan lovely reflection. Well done.. Bala
poulinp (4530) 2005-06-03 13:11
What a beautiful shot. I like the reflection on this water with the strange and soft color. The sky also has a strange texture, as if an enormous snowstorm prepared. Splendid.
jpages (1670) 2005-06-03 13:34
Silence is the word and solitude is the feeling I feel when I look at it. Once again you have done it with an excellent result. Water as the mirror of the earth. Even though the sky is not as superb as sometimes it is, the light was good enough to capture this beautiful reflection, and you did it very well. I like to see the dark zone, contrasting with the blue tonalities of the rest. Good work.
Best regards and have a nice weekend Tan!

Beautiful and beauty spot. Magnificently showed, beautiful colors and contrast. Good saturation. Scenery how with tale..
bboss (3578) 2005-06-03 15:52
That is beautiful - the line of the mountains are unique and unmistakable and very well captured. Even the slightly blown out clouds add a surreal feel and the 50/50 composition is ok here.
Paker (2650) 2005-06-03 16:32
My favorite place in the world captured beautifull. I am very happy ;)
c_kyr (1810) 2005-06-03 22:29
Great scenery and great reflections.
Very well done!
cam (9043) 2005-06-03 22:43
You did a wonderful work here.The colors are lush,the composition is very good.
I like the slope that goes down,on the right,towards the middle.
PixelTerror (0) 2005-06-04 4:19
That's something I missed, as I visited only the Norte Grande, the south is different but certainly equally beautiful as I see from your photo, I'm sure I'd like the place since there are mountains ;-)
The pond creates here a nice foreground that works as a good miror to display this fine reflection.
Have a nice day,
huynt (5079) 2005-06-04 5:52
Very nice. It is peacefull, excellent reflection and landsacpe. Best regards
Paul57 (2217) 2005-06-06 12:08
I like this composition. As a matter of fact, I like anything that deals with South America.
I like the reflection of the mountains in the water and especially the effect caused by the ripples. Great shot for creating a pensive mood!
dgusatto (52) 2005-06-07 10:20
hi, this pic is very nice . Reflections are magic and so strange with the move effect of water. the soft colours are so good. ciao

Tan , the river is excellent, the mountains, the sky (very good picture). Well Done.
mumek (20202) 2005-06-20 17:08
Good afternoon Tan!
Again excellent scenery with super colours, reflections and very nice light.Thanks for the note
sayzey (2358) 2005-07-02 7:49
I love this photo, and I know what you mean about some peoples attitudes to central horizons, its strange how people tend not to like them, I think that this is great, the central horizon ensures that you get to show us all you need to i.e. the mountain and the reflection in perfect symetry!
Well done and dont worry about the cockroach eaters :P
Conrad (41) 2006-01-22 2:37
why some people try to go at any price in the Alps: Cuernos del Paine is so beautiful!!!
This picture shall be compared with one pic shot near the Cervin region. Nice.
sergio1 (12152) 2006-07-11 4:21
