Scotland 26 by MatthiasHaltenhof Scotland 26 by MatthiasHaltenhof
Here is my (a bit early) christmas present for you. DeviantArt is an inspiration to me every single day. From a photographic standpoint: I wouldn't be where i am without dA. I'm gonna be offline for the next few days and spend time with my family, really looking forward for that. I wish happy christmas to all of you.

This piece is amazing in every single way!
The lakes look beautiful in the sunrise/sunset as do the clouds.
When I clicked on the image I actually though:
"Where are the dragons and fairies?"
It's as magical as that!
Since I am have only began learning about the ways of photography I cannot give you any critique as I just can't see anything wrong with it!
The lighting is just perfect and it looks angelic!
Not too bright and not too bright either.
Nothing is blurred so it is easy for the eye to look at it.
In other words,
well done and I had a huge pleasure looking at your work!
What do you think?

I have to say that this scene is quite colourful, and this is not something you see a lot. Many artists believe that the beauty can come a simple picture with less than few colours in it. It's not a wrong option, though is very difficult to find something so monotonous beautiful. Here we have a fine piece of picture capturing a landscape scene. Good work with the light balance. I like the fact that the light from the sun doesn't blinds you. Though i think you could make the picture wider for us to see better, and capture more details. Thank you for this picture that you chose to share with us. Keep up the good work!

it really is, I've been looking for the right sharpening method for ages, tried various and when I found this one 3 years ago, I don't want any other one. My most used method: 900px wide action, reduce the top layer to 50%, flatten, go! Let me see you results :)
