I'm not completely convinced ... What do you think? Thanks.

    As a beginner regarding photographing myself, I might not be qualified to utter criticism. I do like the composition very much, the trees to the side leading to the mountains in the background with a gorgeous reflection on the lake. For me personally, it feels a little overprocessed in terms of contrast and saturation, tho. And I'm still riddling about the object on the lake, what is it? A rock?

    I think it is a lovely shot. Nicely done.

    If that's a first try, you've done an incredible job. Good job with the depth of focus. I'd like to see a little more of the background tree tops though.

    Thanks for your thoughts. Yes, it's a little overprocessed. I come from abstract macro shots, and I've used the same develop method, but here it's another story. Yes, it's a rock, and I prefer not to clone it away.

    Here another version, not so processed. Let me know what do you think....Thanks!

    Thanks David. I've shooted no more than ten landscapes in my life, and this is the first with which i try to be more serious, in order to sell it. So i needed a feedback.
    This shot is made of five portrait shots, combined with Adobe Camera Raw (I used 14-24mm). To see more of the background tree tops, next time I'll try to use ten single shots, in two rows.
    I don't know if Camera Raw is able to manage such a thing, but surely I'll try. :)

    Nice, the second version looks far more natural to me. Comparing the two, I can just say that both versions are great! After all, I think the contrast and saturation perception is quite a personal thing.

    Yes, you are right. If you are a professional photographer, you are more aware about that, generally speaking. So much people just say "wonderful" without noting it.....
