WOW, WOW! This is phenomenal. One in a thousand landscape shot. The mood is just superb. The tree standing in the water anchors the whole image. The sun refection on the water prevents a plain reflection. The horizon is just superb. My hats off to you, Leo.

I'm in agreement with Thien - this is amazing! My only suggestion is that you rotate it by about 0.66° CCW, that and get rid of the signature you airbrushed out. Brilliant shot :-D

Magnifique , grandiose, phénoménal !
And more and more and more !

Prettier than the n° 1, it is nevertheless an extraordinary place (with the other photograph of day), the colors superb, perfect framing, really well done.

The clouds have the feel of snow covered mountains. Very nice
wchen (269) 2003-09-10 1:44
Very nice. Almost surreal scenery.

Absolutely incredible Leo. The placement of horizon 1/3 of the way up is great, as is the tree at left to for a base.
olli (2091) 2003-09-10 2:31
Yes, this is an incredible shot – just perfect. If there wasn´t that tree in the image it would be too simple even though the sky and the reflection looks great. And if there was something more then it would break that great harmony.

What a mood in this picture!

Great picture and composition.
wanderer (21) 2003-09-22 11:40
The calmness of the water and the "engulfed" tree make this stunning picture as the two contrast yet tell the story.The tree in a way,gives a sense of scale and the soft lilac and blue colours set the mood and complement the calmness also.The broken clouds with the sun breaking through just round off and make this a stunning picture. bravo!!

Wonderful, simply wonderful. Everything is in the right spot here and the use of a wide angle lens gives the image a dynamic impact. This is an amazing shot, truly amazing.
sunny (3068) 2003-09-22 12:21
Mystic and magnificent, with a lot of mood, just as if taken out of a fairy-tale! I love the way the dramatic sky and water merge in one! And all those shades of cold colors, reflecting in water and reinforcing the lonely tree presence in the middle of nowhere..Exquisite!
Rhiannon (1728) 2003-10-21 4:24
Wow! I am stunned. Beautiful, spectacular, amazing!
CoolDan (2516) 2003-10-30 17:52
Époustouflant. C'est une scène digne d'un conte fantastique Leo. Tout est parfait.
It is a great photo. Thanks a lot.

I like this picture very much.
MON (135) 2005-10-14 3:51
Excellent shot with a great composition and amazing colours. I like a lot soft tones and reflect on the floor.
Mistral (15402) 2006-01-02 16:03
it's a superb photo with great composition, sharpness and reflections.
In my opinion the thick black frame dissuade too much from the heart of the image. Nit-pick of course!
rbcy1974 (20758) 2006-04-14 7:23
Como es que por medio de la pagina de entrada he descubierto tu galeria.

Amazing view and landscape. The reflections and the composition are really good and I like how you managed this situation.
macjake (52888) 2009-08-16 8:37
looks very dreary and haunting.
Love the perspective and point of view
very well done!
oko (239) 2010-09-16 16:32
I find this picture much stronger than the horizontal verzion. Excellent proportion of sky and earth / water. I like the lense that makes the tree and the clouds at the horizon look so small.
