Plitvice Lakes II by Luke-ro Plitvice Lakes II by Luke-ro
27.11.2008 - EDIT: i didn't like the first version of the picture.
Now It's HDR and no more frame. I think is better.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Plitvice Lakes (Plitvička jezera), Croatia.

The sixteen lakes are divided into an upper and lower cluster formed by runoff from the mountains. They are divided into the 12 Upper Lakes and the 4 Lower Lakes and are separated by natural dams.
The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colours, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue, depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight.
The Plitvice Lakes are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Not much of a surprise, you take them very well.
A job as a photographer would suit you well then, not everybody gets a job doing something they love, it would be fantasic if you did ^-^

Nature itself is pretty, but it doesn't really look like there's a real focus to this picture. The sky also looks kind of detached and photoshopped onto the picture. I think it's because the sky is so bright while the foliage and whatnots are so dark :)

This is a gorgeous scene. I love the extensive greenery and how it's all wrapped around the lakes, as if to protect them.

Nice work with the HDR. The realism is perfect.

Well done. Thank you for sharing this. :smooch:
