Such a rewarding glow to the tonality of this gem!

Thanks Walter. Sometimes the variables cooperate: pale bark trees, lots of bounce light off water, overcast day, Tri-X with that famous long toe to the characteristic curve, all add up to the "mother of pearl" tonality. The hard part was coming up with a quirky asymmetric composition to stop the picture sliding off into the land of bland.

Great composition Maris - your images seem to capture the essence of the landscape in an elegant but understated way.

Maris, the ever so slight edge falloff, has worked to your great advantage here. With all of the interesting stuff having the right kind of detail and lightness nearer the central part, while the edges seem to look as though they have been skillfully airbrushed into a perfect seamless vignette masking.

Mick.
