Mirror on quiet waters

For all the water lovers on the TF, and I would think that would be everyone or you wouldn't have a boat, this is a nice relaxing audiovisual presentation. You may even know where some of it was shot. Full screen, speakers up, enjoy.

Very nice pictures and they're shots ANYONE would love.

Here's a video I took last summer at the point where the Snake River flows into the Columbia River. It was the calmest I've ever seen that area in 30 years of boating here. Enjoy....

Good video, fortunately where I am at we get a quite a few calm days or at least early mornings. Here is one looking out into Lake Ontario just after the fog burned off and one looking back to Port Dover.

I beg to differ!!!!!!!

One of my great pet peeves as a large format B&W fine art nature photographer (wordy description, but accepted as the norm) is over photoshopped water scenes where the reflections are lighter in value than the skies/trees/mountains being reflected

An effect one step short of printing them on black velvet

I think some of the shots in the video are quite nice. But in many of them I would agree with Murray. These days it's impossible to tell what's real and what's not but a lot if not all of the shots in the video look very heavily treated to me, some of them to the point of being no longer believable. And when it's been worked over to the point of not being believable it suddenly flops over into the realm of being almost corny. Murray's black velvet painting analogy is appropriate, I think.

But there are a few that really work well, I thought. None of them are the "exact mirror look" shots.

And Murray, we have to remember, a lot of people like black velvet paintings.

Of the paintings I have seen thus far in my life my absolute favorite is Monet's "La Pie" ("The Magpie.") It hangs in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, but if Monet painted it today and then printed up a few thousand copies and distributed them to those roadside and parking lot painting vendors to sell, I'd bet money the black velvet paintings would outsell it a thousand to one.

I kept yelling "My mother!" at the screen.

How'd I do?
