#1 is the winner here, IMO. Perfect light, color, framing... all good!

All three are excellent but my favorite is the 1st. Something about the reflection/fog coloring that is striking

Indy, all the images were shot with a 5d2 and a Zeiss 21mm.

These are all insanely nice. These would be a once in a life time capture for me personally.

#2 would be my pick if I had to choose just one.
Only because of the reeds clipping the mountain reflection in the others.

Beautiful work Harry.

Top notch! Wow.

Harry, I had a question. In the 3rd photo, how do you get the grass in the foreground and mountains in the BG to be so sharply in focust at the same time? I have always had trouble with this, even when I step down the aperture. Is there a way to ensure this? Are you just far enough away from the grass to ensure it is in focus, and just cropping in post to bring it closer? I feel that knowing how to do this would really improve my attempts at landscape.

Thanks!

Nothing really special. The photos were shot with an excellent lens, the Zeiss 21mm distagon. I always use a tripod and stop down to largest aperture which gets me what I want in focus...I don't shy away from diffraction as the alternative is out of focus areas.

I use Liveview in manual focus to ensure the entire scene is in focus. I try to get the focus point about 1/3 into the scene so that the DOF covers both the foreground and background. I use a remote to trip the shutter so that I don't introduce vibration. If need be, I will hang a sack of rocks from the tripod to help with stabilization if its windy.

If I cannot get everything in focus, I always try to get the foreground pin sharp and let the distant background go somewhat fuzzy...that's what our eyes are used to anyway.

Sam, heading to your neck of the woods next week. Starting out in the Palouse area and then heading up to the Hood for some photography, hiking and R&R. Meeting up with a friend...have a cottage reserved and just kicking back in the hot tub with a few drinks.

I've spent many a days in Portland over the last 5 years. Such a great place with fabulous festivals, brew pubs and eateries.

These are great images! Anyone else think that 1 and 2 look like Bob Ross paintings? (Thats a compliment - I love Bob Ross!)

All very nice, but I like #3 best. The others seem to have some Glamor Glow or Orton going on in the sky that bothers me. I like the more complex composition in #3, and seeing green in the mountain's reflection tickles my eyes. The clouds in #3 is also a plus. How in the heck did you miss the spots in the sky in #3, and did you take any landscape orientation? Good work.

hard to choose just one but think #1 just edges out

Really nice! For me, although #1 jumps right out at me, #2 would be my choice. As I looked and compared, #1 has just a little more pop than I like (though if you showed it on it's own, I might feel differently...) and #3 was a little too flat and the spots in the sky/clouds (on the sensor?) were distracting. #2 has just the right atmosphere for me with wonderful colors. What a beautiful place to revisit. Nicely done!

I am a bit late to this thread, but I will toss in a comment anyway.

All three images are superb! The artistry and photographic skill are admirable. If I had to rank them I would probably go with the order of presentation, although #1 may have been improved if a beaver was thrashing around in the water.

I believe all of the images are made better and more interesting by the presence of the others. They are strongest the way you presented them, as a set.
