Was the water really that colour or did you edit the colours?

It really was spectacularly blue in real life.  Up there the was is crystal clear.  But at the right time of day, the light hits refracts at the right angle to bring out the deep blues!

That being said, I tweaked the contrast to bring out more of those colors.

It's great! It reminds me of one of the best holiday I had. How did you make such a long shot?

I'm glad you like it :D Where did you go for your best holiday?

You mean the shutter speed? If so, it's a pretty fast shot at 1/250th of a second :)

It was at a lake by the mountains. I don't know it's english name. o///O The weather was awesome and the water was as blue as in your photo. *o*

I don't know much about photography. What does fast shot means?
I meant how did you made a picture this high. When I use my camera the pictures all have the same size. Did you cute the edges?

Do you live near the lake or was it on a travel? It must have been great to sit there.

That sounds incredible! Was it high up in the mountains?

Oh, I was referring to the shutter speed. So essentially how fast the camera blinks when taking the photos (which determines how long light reaches the sensor or film).

Yeah, I cropped the image to make it taller. I believe I made the dimensions 9x16.

It is in California, but nowhere near where I live. The drive there is 12hrs xD I had gone on a backpacking trip there with a couple friends. It's a lot of work carrying all our gear, but such an adventure! We set up our tent with views of the lake and mountains :D

This is lovely!

I really like the colours in this one and how there are different shades of blue.. like the sky has certain shades/gradient and then the water does as well. It's pretty cool how the mountain splits the two and yet we still feel a connection with it all.

There is an intense sense of balance, further accentuated by the very straight water line going right across from left to right. The lighting is brilliant and.. yeah, it's just a lovely shot overall.

I do think it's a shame it's not a landscape piece, but other than that, it's pretty cool. :nod:

Thanks! I'm glad you like it :)

As you said, it would be nice to have a more peripheral view that a landscape shot provides. Unfortunately, that wasn't much of an option here. The areas on both sides, in my opinion, would've detracted from the composition and story I was aiming to create. Admittedly, being a vertical piece is constricting, but that's why I included the granite foreground - to give some perspective of being there in person.

It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it :)

I appreciate your input :D
