There are so many words to describe this photo. Stunning and breathtaking are just a couple. Diverse really seems to come to mind on this one, though. You have captured so many of the beautiful lifeforms and creations of nature in this one single shot. I am in awe of the beauty in the trees and their color. Love the lighting on them. The detail in the lake and "through" it are amazing. I enjoy staring into all of the little rocks idly sitting by. The mountains are just remarkable and the clouds hovering above them just add to the overall beauty of this photograph. I have to say though, I just lose myself in thought when staring at the reflective water. This photograph really propels the mind into philosophical thought.

Thinking a critique will do better than just a comment, because I have a lot to say about this.

First of all, I'm sorry that I don't comment on your art, but you just have too much to describe! This particular scene is my favorite out of the photographs I've seen by you, and it is simply breathtaking. It stuns me, not only because of the vibrant beauty coming from it, but because this is actually a real place, and not manipulated 8D All of the colors really catch my eye, and I like how the colors cooperate with each other even though they are somewhat seperated into sections. As in, greens, browns, blues, and light/white-ish colors each have their own part of the picture, but none overpowers the other.
Everything about this is amazing, and beautiful, and I hope to see more like this in your future deviations C: <img src="…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" title="Heart"/>
P.s. I also really like the shadow that is made from the cloud on the right-hand side.

Its one of the most vivid and eye-catching photos I have ever seen! It feels like the whole rainbow was involved in creation of this scenery.
Contrast and sharpness, and amazing depth of the picture make it simply delicious <img src="…" width="18" height="17" alt=":faint:" title="I think I've fainted."/> Everything we see is clear and bright.
You did great job with composition, it really gives original view, making us feel so tiny compared to the mountains and clouds on the background, yet at the same time so huge to stand above all it and observe it.
I'd say that this photo makes me feel freedom, not to mention the inspiration it gives.
Sir, you are awesome, keep up a good work <img src="…" width="16" height="18" alt=":stinkeye:" title=":stinkeye:"/>!

Thank you for your critique but I think every critique must involved suggestions for improvement

Oh, no problem.) I'm not much of a photographer, so I perfectly understand and agree with you.

Wow! This is beautiful! The things that are so eye-catching about this are the symmetry and the perspective. I love the symmetry as it is so exact and gives a very clear reflection and I especially love the cloud in this as it looks very 3D in a way. Furthermore, I love the shadows in this piece on the trees and mountains as this also reflects on the water. I love the perspective as you can see everything so clear in this photograph and you can see underneath the cloud even though you can see the side and top of other things like the trees, rocks and mountains. I am somehow extremely attracted to this cloud though...
Great job!
