Yet another reflection of Torres del Paine, this time from a still pond next to the Paine river (the flowing part of the river is the bright horizontal slice at left on the horizon). Taken in the early autumn morning, as bad weather was approaching. I desaturated the colours which went crazy after I applied contrast, it may still be too saturated for some. I will upload to WS a photo of the same place taken 24 hours later.

Another great landscape Tan, and a beautiful reflection. I think the saturation is okay - the high contrast certainly gives it a lot of atmosphere. Cheers . . . David

Fantastic shot Tan,
very good view and well seen reflection, great sharpness, good colours, well a fantastic photo, with my compliments,
KevRyan (22956) 2005-07-15 13:55
...... Dali-esque ....a stunning piece of work Tan - absolutely solidly beautiful - even in such beauty perhaps a minor change though - I might think about cropping back the open space to the left a little.
best wishes Kev

when you turn around the picture, it would be difficult to see the difference... Good job.

Abother really stunning landscape, fantastic sky and reflection.
snuggleaphagus (4146) 2005-07-15 14:03
The photo is glorious. the colors are great and the reflection just fantastic. Good light and the details specially the little reeds on the water are great.
A great composition. Very very well done

No words for this one, speechless!
lolo-06 (169) 2005-07-15 14:16
The shot is very well composed : saturation, colors, light, diagonal, ...
Well done for the title

Superbe paysage,belle couleurs et hallucinants reflets!
Magnifique prise de vue
Merci pour le partage

this kind of effects done by the reflections are always nice to see and explore. This reflection is impressive, it is really a mirror!. Here the nature is near to show its power, better than the blue and clear sky, although it is also a very good reflection!
Both are great, but I like much this one. The colours are good too. You did a good post process.
Best regards and have a nice weekend.
Ina (2687) 2005-07-15 14:23
Fantastic colors and composition...I love this perfect reflection and the light...Congratulations on a great job and TFS...Ina...
srabbe (1424) 2005-07-15 14:44
Wonderful picture, Tan !
It is so sharp, and I really enjoy the colors. I like the green touch, and I agree the atmosphere is much greater with this sky.
Roly (2024) 2005-07-15 14:46
No, the colors are just fine, warm and pleasant. The sky is slightly overexposed on the left, but the reflection is perfect and I love the darker part of the sky on the right. A magnificent landscape, one of these "must see" places.
robiuk (10807) 2005-07-15 14:47
Absolutely divine, Tan!
Your PP work on the photo paid off and here we have a crystal clear mirroring Torres del Paine in all it beauty!
Looks almost like a fractal.
Great job, indeed!
aravind_phd (237) 2005-07-15 14:53
Gorgesous reflection and great colours
Thanks for sharing
jean-marie (3088) 2005-07-15 15:01
ma-gni-fi-que ! Ce reflet est parfait. Un grand bravo !!!
Cormac (26563) 2005-07-15 15:22
This is magnificent! The detail is great, the reflection is good, and the colour is really wonderful. I especially like the detail in the sky. Can't wait to see the WS too. Adding this one to my favourites. Superb!
AmiBe (6042) 2005-07-15 15:28
Hi Tan, are you a cat ? Did you have 7 lives ?
How can you have been to these many beautiful places you show us every days ?
Fantastic landscape again, colors, reflection, sharpness are excellent.
tootsie (400) 2005-07-15 15:39
hi tan, word up from sf! yikes, i can't imagine what will happen when you "improve your pictures". looks perfect to me.
UlfE (14641) 2005-07-15 16:03
What beautiful shot. What a silent atmosphere and the reflection in the lakeis fantastic. Really well done!
Tue (32534) 2005-07-15 16:05
It's just like you placed a huge mirror in front of the mountain before taking this picture. It's gorgeous!
The dark clouds suit well to the rest of the landscape, very well done!
betogrein (2232) 2005-07-15 16:08
Linda foto, o reflexo na água esta maravilhoso.
kabe (2011) 2005-07-15 16:13
Yes, I like it! Very well done landscape.
A very beautiful place and a perfect colours and details !
jrzufferey (7305) 2005-07-15 16:26
Je trouve ta réflection magnifique, ce qui me gène un peu c'est les buissons dans l'eau, j'ai essayé un petit WS. Amitié/jr

Hi Tan :-)
Great shot, great colors, great photo.

quantabeh (5205) 2005-07-15 17:49
oh , wow,
the place I have always wanted to visit.. tremendous, beautiful...
looks like from a dream. The exposure and composition is seriously one of the best I have seen in a long time here. WOW, congratualations!! I would love to have this on my wall.
nice work Mr. Yilmaz.
toni_al (15875) 2005-07-15 18:04
Superbe image (double image). les couleurs sont vraiment superbes.
danyy (0) 2005-07-15 18:07
et bien en voilà un, de petit chef d'oeuvre.
Un paysage très jurassique, la nature dans son état brut.
Mais quelles couleurs et quels contrastes.
Et ce reflet, envers qui vaut l'endroit .
Est-il besoin d'ajouter des complimenst sur le ciel ?
tjanze (5674) 2005-07-15 19:04
From many reflections I seen,this is the great one.Colours,sharpness,composition is all nr.1.
Bravo Tan! Well done.
sayzey (2358) 2005-07-15 19:53
Wow! Not a problem with the saturation it looks great!
Like you have taken the photo on a giant mirror!
Such a superb photo this Tan, I am in awe!!
Well done! I love how th esky seems to change from fairly nice and bright to the dark on the right!
cgrindahl (6113) 2005-07-15 20:56
This is gorgeous Tan! Colors and details are exquisitely rendered here. Yes, it is a bit of a cliche with a reflection of a natural setting, but that doesn't matter since the result is so fine. Of course, that is a hallmark of all the photos you've brought to TE in your relatively brief time here. Congratulations and thanks for sharing your work. Perhaps one day I'll run into you somewhere around the Bay with camera in hand... ;-)
Fon (2302) 2005-07-15 22:25
Simply fantastic this shot,Tan.
Wonderful reflexes, colors and perfect brightness and with good sharpness.Adding this one to my favourites.Well done!
maphoto (8082) 2005-07-15 22:32
Incredible place Tan again , gorgeous reflection and awesome sky, I prefer this one with this magic and colorful sky, very well done and presented, thanks for sharing.
huynt (5079) 2005-07-16 1:47
A very great shot. Great reflection. Wonderful sky. Well POV. Thanks for sharing. Enjoyable week end
fayeulle (27827) 2005-07-16 2:33
I have obviously to repeat the same as my TreakEath friends. It is a fantastc landscape.
Very well done. Perhaps my next trip ?
PixelTerror (0) 2005-07-16 4:35
Dramatic landscape and crystal clear reflections offering nearly perfect symetries, two more fine shots from you !
Have a nice week end,
dkeus31 (27735) 2005-07-16 7:45
Superb colorfull landscape you show us there!
Superb colors and reflexion.
I like it.
sergecross (3438) 2005-07-16 9:26
Hi Tan, excellent compostion and nice colors, the reflection on the water is great and i am sure that if you rotate the picture at 180, you can see the same picture and i like that.
I like the sky and the mountains at the background.
leonorkuhn (16235) 2005-07-16 10:24
Wonderful landscape! Very nice composition, great reflex, colours, sharp and lightness.
Well well done.
gren4 (603) 2005-07-16 11:58
This photo really stands out well due to the strong shadows giving it a backlit apperance with the foreground also having good exposure.A way to get round the issues of saturation when heightening the contrast would be to create a curves adjustment layer and increase the contrast to the desired amount within the curve and then set the layer blending properties to luminosity.This will increase contrast without increasing saturation.Hope this may be of some help!
Paker (2650) 2005-07-16 12:02
Oh, Torres del Paine... oh... one of the most beautiful places in the world. Very nicely caught.
thanks for showing and bringing some memories :-)
CliffW (2377) 2005-07-16 12:23
Just incredible reflection on the water. Perfect clarity! Love your title by the way. Thanks for sharing this. On my top 5 places to see and was going to go in 2006 but decided to slip in a trip to Asia first. This photo is one great reason to make sure we go soon though.
jjbach (9324) 2005-07-16 16:58
What reflections are these!! It seems like you croped the image and turned upsidedown! What else can I say. Extremely good work!!
Really, thanks for posting.
rabdelnoor (3421) 2005-07-17 0:56
Wow.. What a fantastic shot. Very nice reflection with beautiful colours. And the sky is superb and add a dramatic touch to the scene.
Very well done Tan.
Jeppe (18654) 2005-07-17 3:24
Hi Tan - a perfect mirror shot and with a cleaver title as well :-) I like the elements in the water to give us water surface - thanks for sharing this great work.
hayu (640) 2005-07-17 5:50

Leonie (8809) 2005-07-31 12:04
Wow, Tan, breathtaking! THe reflection is fantastic! Hard to believe it is real!
jbweasle (9393) 2005-08-01 17:12
A beautiful capture of the mountains - instantly recognisable. I haven't done the trek here but its high on the "must do" list. I love the clouds and the mirror-like reflection is awesome.
mumek (20202) 2005-08-07 18:53

Great colours, fantastic scenery, super shot.
mjdundee (4663) 2005-08-23 6:34
Absolute fantastic light and sky.
Great compo and good to have the shade running across the 'Torres'. Makes them more dimensional than just a flat postcard view.
Great Job. TFS.

Keep sending us the good stuff - Many thanks - Izzet

Hi Tan, i discover with delight this one, a puurfect reflexion :)) And now i realize that a thing usefull to a photograph for clouds & sky is filter, polarizer, i think that could help me avoiding burnt skies :))
Patagonia you said ? I quote i quote, one day also i will go there :))
