    Very pretty!

    Curious question -- how do you get the images so sharp? Is that expensive camera or lens thing, or post proc?

    Thank you for your comments. Really appreciate it
    Expensive point and shoot. :lol::lol:
    These were shot with a Canon XT, Sigma 10-20 lens, with ND filter. ISO100, 1/60, f9.0. give or take for the other two.
    Before saving for the web, in photoshop I ran an unsharp mask on the image, and turn the opacity down a bit.

    Ohhh, those reflections are stunning! I especially like the first one...great clouds, and the light on the rocks is lovely

    I need to figure that out and why and when and oh so many more things.

    Dude, I loved the first one and then I saw the last one. Now I'm beside myself (Hey, you talkin' ta me? You must be talkin' ta me 'cause I'm the only one here).

    All three are great, but I think I might have to give the :thumbsup: to #3, even without the swan. No wait........... on the fifth look, I'm now going with the first. I like the swan. I also think you may have cropped the bottom too tight, but love the processing.

    Thanks for the kind words. Appreciate you stopping in.
    Yeah...the tight crop was an after thought. I just felt they were too....centered. :lol: I have a little I can play with before I keep my keepers. :D

    i'm all for the third one, the line of rocks coming in from the left between the actual mountain and its mirrored image is very pretty.

    Hmm wonder if wide angle makes for sharper pictures in general. Either way, great job on them :thumbup:
