Location: Lake Bonney, Barmera, South Australia, after sunset

Technical and time: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 16-35mm 1:2,8L II USM, tripod, long exposure, PP in PS 5.1, in April 2012

You're viewing dead gum trees by night, which have partly been inundated by Lake Bonney.
Lake Bonney is a freshwater lake located in the Riverland region of South Australia.
The town of Barmera is located on its shores. It's connected by a creek to the River Murray.
IMO, dead gum trees (Eucalyptus) are intriguing photographical objects especially when encountering them surrounded by water.

Thx so much for viewing and leaving a comment.
Volker

This is really cool. I like last-light shots with wide angle, but they often lack interesting ground-based subject matter. The tree skeletons really make this interesting. I think, though, that I would clone out the stars, especially the one appearing between the tree branches (and its reflection). There aren't enough of them to make this a good star shot, and in their sparsity they are distracting.

I love the trees, but I would clone out that one spot in the tree branches. Other than that it's superb!

Beautiful! Love the little ripple of black along the far shore. The azure blue is stunning.

Hey Volker,

I like your minimalistic view here. Very nicely done, though I am not sure about that one bright star right at the trees. I think I would like it better if that wasn't right at the trees.. but maybe it's just from viewing here at the web resolution.

What they (above) said.
Great capture.
I would correct the three stars.
Thanks for posting.

Very nicely done -- would look great as a 3:1 crop too, I think. Great job

Love the composition - looks like an area without light pollution. Like other comments I would correct the stars - but since there are only 3 stars I would just remove the tails and change them back to stars. Dave
