Magic Island by nickandrik Magic Island by nickandrik
The lake reflects your true self.
Noble souls will reach the magic island, all others will be consumed by their dark images.

Ready for the catharsis?

Like this one very much...

I know this is very hard, and not alwyas possible... but it would be perfect (in my opinion) if it was captured slightly lower, and maybe a bit more closed up... or with a small cut, so you would have a perfect mirror effect :)

But it's a good work!

I know people that say that the picture should be 1/3 - 2/3 and others who prefer the perfect balance.
If you ask me, I still have no idea which one I like better. :hmm:
Maybe perfect balance but an upside-down photo? ;)
Anyway, the first 10k photos are difficult, then I will learn :P

Thanks a lot for your comment. :D

In my opinion that "rule of the thirds" is not applicable when you are trying to get a mirror effect on the picture...

Honestly, it all depends a lot... you may learn all the the composition rules, but in the end, the last rule is usually:
"Break all the previous rules you learned, whenever you feel you should"

So... Do it as you like it better! :D
If you personally are not 100% satisfied with this result, next time try to make it better... try other angles... try from different places... next to the ground or higher... just try differently in identical situations... And you'll get better and better...

Photography is supposed to be a pleasure... at least for me :D

And also photography is supposed to be a manipulation of reality: both of what is shown and ours :D

Adeus!

It looks...almost unreal. The way it seems to rise up from the water, the beautiful clear water and the misty mountains...lovely shot. :heart:

Ίσως έχει δίκιο.
Επίσης: απίστευτο τι μπορείς να κάνεις αλλάζοντας απλά contrast kai brightness.
Αν δεις την αρχική, δεν βλέπεται.

Σου έχω πει κι άλλες φορές ότι δεν μαρέσει το editing. Γενικά σκέφτομαι ότι αλλάζεις ότι θα μπορούσες να κάνεις με τη μηχανή εκείνη τη στιγμή αν είχες άπειρο χρόνο.

Thanks a lot.

It is a really enchanting place in Slovenia.
It is the lake next to the city of Bled, under their highest mountain called Triglav.
The legends of the mountain and the island in the center of the lake make it like living in a fairy tale.

A must visit if you pass form Slovenia
