Sleeping nature by Philippe-Albanel Sleeping nature by Philippe-Albanel
PLEASE LOOK AT FULL SIZE

This little beach is situated near the north road. It is not so easy to get on but after 5 minutes walking through the fir I was ready to shoot this awesome sunset on the lake.

This lake is the most important artificial one of Europe. It is this summer the 50th anniversary of the lake and it was for me an occasion to make a specific session there to commemorate this event.

Feel free to comment and let me know your impression

I took a long good look at this piece before deciding writing the critique.

When I view a photo I search for a line, maybe not the usual "line" you think of, you know, the one that leads your eye in the shots due to a good composition. I mean more of a line between what's going on here, what elements are put against each other and what the feeling is from viewing it.

Here for me I feel that there's a piece missing and I think it lacks a good balance between every element here, nothing really ties it up.

A cropping to reduce the sky a bit, making the water take up more focus as well as eliminate some of the shoreline there to get rid of the trees there.
I think the trees are the element here that throws the other harmony a bit off. They're positioned in the upper right corner and by that they close that side of the photo, almost making a separate zone where nothing really happends.
So taking the trees away here from the midground I think would benifit this piece and you'd still have a nice line of rocks to rest in the right hand side of the shot :thumbsup:

Beautiful set here with wonderful light, only a tighter crop would've made it even better I think.

I love the fuzziness (can't think of a better word at the moment) of the rocks under the water contrasts clarity of the rest of the area.

The fuzziness is due to the long exposure which flatten the water and give softneww
Many thanks for the kind comment
