    Spring Sunrise on the Opeongo Road (Algonquin Park)

    I was going through, working on some images that I took this spring up in Algonquin Park. Liked how the clouds and the reflections worked, this was one the better ones that I took that day along the road side. I think that I had a hard 3-stop grad on the bring the sky down closer to the foreground.

    Cheers:

    Allan, this is a nice photograph. The reflection of the sky in the water really caught my attention. Nice colors.

    Very nice, Allan. A rare combination of colors that are relatively intense yet calming.

    Hi Allan.

    There is a second composition that I wondered if you would like. Try cropping off the bottom so most of the cloud reflections are gone. By doing the crop, there are not two bright areas competing for the viewer's attention, and it moves the horizon down off center. Having said that, the image is wonderful just as is.

    Really a pleasing image. This is one time that a centered horizon works for me due to most of the color being in the lower part of the image. Nice job.

    Thanks very one for your comments, there was little to no wind on the ground, however it was coming the clouds around, opening them up and closing them to you just had to wait until it was right. Of course you took lots of shots as you never knew what was going to happen.
    Ken there is also a third composition, reverse of what you stated remove the sky and keep the reflections in the fore ground.

    Cheers:

    Allan
