Teton Reflections by tourofnature Teton Reflections by tourofnature
I was somewhat disappointed when I arrived on location to shoot on this morning, fortunately the disappointment was short lived. There were thick storm clouds on the eastern horizon, preventing the beautiful early morning rays from lighting up this section of the stunning Teton Range. I waited and chatted with a couple other photographer's, the four of keeping a close eye on the towering range.

About 40 minutes after the sunrise, the rays finally broke through above the clouds and created the scene you see here. This was a memorable sunrise, easliy one of the most picturesque locations I've ever taken photos.

Very nice!

I love how the reflection is absolutely perfect. You could easily flip the photo. That probably would make people puzzled and wonder what's weird about the photo though. I love the colours in this photo even though they'd probably could be a bit more dramatic. But it's good you didn't overdo it.

I'd probably cut out the braunish thing on the left, it's a bit distracting. I keep looking at it while the mountains should be the main focus.

But apart from that, this photo makes me wish I'd have been there at the time. Great job!

Hi great work. Where was this taken? It's amazing when water can be this still. As for a critique I also shoot a lot of landscape, and one thing I find most difficult is making a shot differ from all before it. A bold statement I know, and I rarely achieve this at all. But in a world of a million landscape photographers that's the only solid critique I could mention. You're composition is great. Putting everything in the centre definitely losses something in translation, so thank you for not doing that! This shot is also very hyper focal, which is another aspect few get correct (myself included). Love it though, thanks for the view!

Wayson, I love this shot. I haven't made it down here at sunrise, but I think this is about as good as it gets. I really like that it was taken a little after sunrise because the blue sky works so well with the green trees. Awesome work.
