day after by ladyrapid day after by ladyrapid
We all live our lives 1 day at a time. We make plans and figure things out for days to come.
we only live in one time, the present, and should make sure to embrace it for what it is.
It will never come again, you will never have a second chance, you will only do things once.

Don't try to controle the future, it will take care of itself through the life you choose to live. Only make sure you take the decisions yourself since there will always be a day after.

Hi there!

I received this deviation in my message center since I watch the #Great-waterscapes group, and this is one of the deviations that really caught my attention instantly.

Beautiful colors, very warm. I also love the contradiction between the warm purple and pink colors against the snowy foreground. Lovely details in the rocks and the snow/ice.

I don't have much experience with making long exposure photographs, so I'm not sure if I'd have the right to give constructive critiques, but the sky has a hot spot that kinda draws too much of my attention. I'm not sure how that could or should be improved, filter wise or digitally, though. I'm still getting into filters since I do own some Cokin filters but didn't get the results I was looking for.

Nonetheless it's a beautiful shot that certainly deserves more attention. And I love the fact that it's taken with a 7D since I got myself one a few weeks ago :giggle: Now I need some good quality filters and then I'll be ready to go!

Oh, and props for leaving the EXIF in the first place. I think a lot of deviants can learn from them, including myself. A lot of photographers remove them, and I never feel in the position of asking what kind of equipment they've used. So, thanks for that as well!

What do you think?

An incredible photo!
I love the way you've captured all three forms of water here - as a solid, in the snow; as a liquid, in the lake/sea, and as a gas (or rather vapour) in the clouds.
I find the way you divide the forms of water up into their respective thirds to be very clever as well.

that fogs-like-sea resembles with what you've mentioned "a future" and your description has forced me to think for my own life again. I guess your word is a wisdom or revelation, to help the lost souls, like me, to see that there's a light and it wants to give a guidance to get thru back to the right track accordingly.
