p.1 #1 · Fire and Ice - Sunset over Steamboat Lake


A recent shot of Steamboat lake at sunset. Curious as to what you think. Tried some different post processing steps.



Cheers - Paul

I must admit it has a different tint to it, almost like a "tea" or old look to it. I like the silhouette of the distant Mtns, and the reflections.Its nice and crisp as well.
I guess the real question is, did you accomplish what you wanted, and are you satisfied with the results.
If you are then, it came out exactly like you wanted.

I like this image, but I would crop it like this.

Paul,

Starting with Ben's re-work, crop from bottom to just where reddish tones begin in water, and from left at or near the left side of the last peak.

This moves the waterline below mid-frame and broadly leaves three loosely equivalent areas horizontally: water, silhouetted shore/mountains, and sky/clouds.

To me, the bright areas at left and bottom - water and sky - detract from the basic image.

My 2

Yep, I realize my crop centered it, but dislike empty space more then being centered. I thought about going to the start of the red but left in the darker clouds. Yours is no doubt the better way.

I use scroll to cut off tops or bottoms of displayed images, easy way to see a crop effect.

Thank you guys for the feedback. I think I need to start bringing in a longer lens for these.
