The moment I saw this image, I kept staring at it for like 5 minutes for how beautiful, colorful, shiny, professional and detailed this photograph is.
I actually can’t tell whether it’s an artificial/computer edited reflection or actual water. It’s very well done, very vibrant and very detailed. The mountains have such sharp lines and colors engraved by God, magnified by the talented photographer and editor.
The Aurora Borealis in real life is one of the best things I’ve ever seen and definitely the most interesting and mesmerizing and I believe one would be so lucky to capture it in a photograph and the way you did it makes it look even better than reality.
Everything’s so shiny, so sharp and so vibrant that it makes you feel like it’s a drawing or 3D or a photograph taken on another planet or some sci-fi movie. But in the end, it’s earth and it’s a photograph taken by a seemingly very talented photographer and editor.
Great job. Keep em’ coming.
Sorry for the delay in replying to you, but thanks alot for taking the time writing this critique.
The "reflection" is mirrored for printing purposes, but the original image is a photograph which I took last winter.
This particular edition is a tad to sharp in the mountain area, but I've soften this up a little for print, but haven't updated it for web yet.
Thanks alot though for the compliments in your critique
It’s alright, my friend.
It was my pleasure seeing your outstanding artwork. It was very beautiful regardless of the sharpness or whether the reflection is real or artificial. It’s totally amazing.
The whole image gives a surreal feeling that nobody notices what’s real and what’s not.
Great job and it’s no compliment, just the truth.
