You like deep saturated colours with heavy contrast. Well, you have my blessing on that apparoch. Especially in landscapes the colours can't be strong enough and as you present it here in rich and deep tones is simply wonderful. Great tools and a great eye make the final picture...very good work.
Have a nice weekend, Henk

This is a very impressive sunset with fantastic reflections! Great POV and composition. It looks so calm and peaceful. I would love to return to Ireland with my digital camera and capture scenes such as this. TFS

What a view! and What a photo! You got the right moment in the right manner.
Many features contribute to make it a masterpiece: The gorgious sky, the reflections in the lake, buta also the good chosen POV which give a best preminence to the water leaving the mountain in the background. Absolutely perfect.
My best compliments,

Lovely work as always! I am a fan. This one is no exception. Great foreground, and lovely framing of this beautiful scene. For me the colors are perfect. And of course the reflection makes it all magic. Great work! cheers,

By definition one should normally embrace everything that Henk Meijer says hahaha... But in this case... ;-) Well, I do feel that the almost pink in the clouds in the sky is just a bit too much for me. In the reflection very nice, but in the sky I'd have loved to see them more towards the orange/red tones. The pinkish glow doesn't do it for me...
Oh oh, eternal damnation will be my faith now that I disagreed with Henk...
But I dó love the point of view giving an immense depth in your composition!
Have a good weekend!

This is a gorgeous scene and one that could hang on any wall. the bit of light on the mountain top was well seen and captured. My only comment would be to clone out that light coloured rock at the bottom.

WOW ... amazing shot with wonderful colors. I love the reflection of the clouds in the water. The clouds kind of remind me of cotton candy. Excellently composed shot with perfect sharpness. Congratulations!!!

Wonderful shot, the best I've seen of this place on TE ! The composition is very well balanced, with a good DOF and great reflections in the lake. The light and the colours are just incredible !
Thanks for posting
