    Took this picture this past January while we were in Tahoe... Came across it today and wanted to share for C&C.

    Sweet :D Things I would change: The angle is off and the rule of thirds more sky less black, would make this a winner for me.

    Love the color. I think I might have liked to see something a hair earlier so it wasn't so much a silhouette, but then again it might have taken away from the mood of the shot.

    Very nice scilouette of the mountains with reflection is a bonus. Nice how the rocks in the water help to break up the shot into sections but not as a distraction.

    Hi ocular,

    What do you mean by the angle is off?

    Also - rule of thirds .... the horizon is at the top 2/3 of the photo.... as is the rock in the water is 2/3 on the right on the photo.... Are you saying you would rather have 2/3 sky and 1/3 water?

    -David

    Thanks all for the positive comments! Pharmakon - you're right... it took away from the shot in my view.... I tried to add a bit of light for detail but it just wasn't "doing it for me"....

    Great shot. I would like to see less water, more sky (just IMHO). Could see this as a picture hanging on someones wall. Heck, even as wallpapers for the desktop.

    Thanks again all, for those wishing for more sky and less water... Unfortunately I framed the shot this particular way, right now it's cropped to about 75% of original picture, but if I were to crop it down more so it had more sky and less water...it would be like 20% of the original picture...and look horrible....I'll keep it in mind for next time though :)
