MANY THANKS for all of your kind and gracious comments on my photographs while we were away. We had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect. One of the staff at the Lodge said that we ended up with the best room in the entire Lodge. Since you can't reserve specific rooms, that was a huge gift; we had great views from all of the windows, as well as the bathtub. Going and returning, we stopped at a couple of dynamite waterfalls. I have a month's worth of work to do editing.

Well, such a perfect photograph. Peaceful, serene, and beautiful glowing sunlight. I want to say thanks to you Jack, for your candid comments. I truely appreciate your critique of my photo's. I am still on a major learning curve and your comments mean a lot to me. I view you as a true artist both as a photographer and in processing and look up to your work as inspiration.

Have a great weekend,

This is one of your very best-and you set your own bar so high, that that makes this a very special shot indeed. I won't bang on about composition, colour, focus, interest and timing(Oh I just have, sorry) I'll just say how much I enjoy looking at this image!

Jack, this is stunning. First though, I love that it includes the fisherman. I realize (though I haven't read the comments) most people are likely drawn to this rich light. Me too but what I am really taken with is the sharpness, the clarity of the trees and hill in the left horizon. Wow.
