asleep by ladyrapid asleep by ladyrapid
Out in the nature things stop matter. It doesn't matter if you're rich or if you're the smartest person on the planet.
Nature doesn't judge you, it doesn't judge anybody.
Everyone can be themselves and enjoy the living things.
To stand and watch a beautiful sunset is something I hope people can do and for those who can't, I share mine.
This is nature, asleep, waiting for a new day to come.

Suggester said; "Great light, colors and composition that create a very tranquil mood. Excellent work."

Now this is a calm, serene and beautiful scene.
I really like the composition, the rocks leading the eye in to the photo and in to the water. The calm clear water mirroring the sky so beautifully.
The colors of the sky so warm and inviting.
Very nicely captured and composed. The detail of the shrubs in the foreground and the large trees in the distance make for a nice balance as well as gives a nice feeling of spring.
The detail in both light and dark areas show how nice the exposure of this photo is :D
Very nice photo please keep sharing them.

Oh and Congratulations on the Daily Deviation you received for this photo. This photo has truly earned it. :D
What do you think?

:iconglinkling:
This photograph was taken perfectly. The timing was great, as the sunset makes it an even better picture. The trees look excellent in front of the sunset. I can picture animals living there, roaming around the wilderness. The landscape is exceptional, perfect for the photo. It is a great picture, calming a stressed person or bringing colors to a dull room. I can hear the location, the rush of the river and the wind brushing the trees. Sweden must be very stunning, if there are more places like this. This picture just makes me want to go to a place like that. I give it 4.9.9 stars.

I'm not a big fan of the surreal HDR, some are mindblowing and all that but it's not my style, I like HDR more naturally as it comes.

Cheers mate!

Yea, always. To make 2 gradient masks takes what, like 20 seconds, maybe 40 with tweaking :D. I want to keep it simple, gives best result for me.

Know how to do it and do it yourself I believe is the key, only then can you get the developing variation required to become better. Automatisation is death to creativity in areas with room for manual assistance, such as auto-generation applications etc :thumbsup:
