Campsite by IvanAndreevich Campsite by IvanAndreevich
The 2012 landscape calendar is now available! Go check it out :D

Does anyone want to go camping with me? Perhaps the cool thing to notice here is the frost that's hiding in the shadows.

Location: Wedgemount Lake, Garibaldi Provincial Park, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Equipment: Nikon D90 + Tokina 11-16mm + Tiffen Polarizer.
Technique: Photomatix Pro 4.1 and Photoshop CS5 from 3 RAW shot with AEB +1.5 EV, 0, -1.5 EV exposures.
Follow me on Facebook: West Coast Scapes :D

I am not a professional photographer, nor am I knowledgeable with the latest camera equipment or current photo editing software available. Please understand that I give this critique as an onlooker only. The opinions expressed by me are an account as to what I see within the photograph.

First off...WOW! Beautiful scenery!

I find a nice balance within this photograph. Not too much sky, nor too much mountain or foreground. Instead, there's seems to be an equal balance of each, giving an onlooker a "big picture" feel, and allowing one to take in all the beauty expressed here. I don't feel cheated.

One can actually feel the cold weather while viewing the photo as well. There's no mistaking the cold with the large amounts of frost on the ground and snow on the mountains. The darkness of the clouds that loom above the mountains intensifies the "cold" feel by adding it's wintery shadow.

Is this the true color of the lake or steam? If so, it is so nice. It's glassy-calm look is relaxing adding a great sense of peace to the photo. All stress, melts away.

What I dislike about the photo, is the tent. I understand that this is a camping photo, however, the tent seems out of place. You have all this beauty and then, pow! This brown tent with it's orange tip is there. Maybe a more pastel colored tent would have been more appealing. The tent also pulls my attention away from the natural beauty within the photograph.

This photo gives much to an onlooker, beauty, relaxation, peace, and cold weather. I enjoy cold weather!

Well done!!!

If this is what nature looks like wherever you camp, then YES. You bring magic into the world *-*

I love all your work and the tent for me does give it a change and makes me feel like I am there more so than without.

Setting up camp in order to take your time, enjoy the environment and compose your shots. I am inspired and also envious, must try to get there myself someday! Thank you. =)

Maybe I will camp there some day :D

I love everything about this photo. As a fellow backpacker, I don't think the tent mars the image at all. I totally get it. What a glorious place to wake up! I'm so jealous :D

This captures the essence of how I feel about going on my little adventures. Wouldn't trade a second of it :) If you ever head south into the pacific NW USA....

Woot! It's a great place for exploring little nooks and crannies. Hot springs, rock bridges, hidden pools :3 I think that's why I love your photos so much. You can capture the scenery similar to what I'm used to/love, just *much* better! Thanks for sharing your work!

As always Ivan, nice composition here. However, Id try to reduce the noise on the tent and the lake a bit, thats a bit disturbing to me.

I already did. It needed more than 3 shots for HDR..

Are you using Neat Image for noise reduction? Ive got some really nice results with it...

Doesn't matter what I use, there is a ton of noise there, and little detail.

what kind of edition did you do to this photo? I'm really curious 'cause I say that you just enhanced the colours, but a friend of mine says that you did more than that. :P

It's HDR in Photomatix, and then some Photoshop magic to get right where I want it.

Wow, this shot is amazing. I can almost feel the cold with the black, white and blue colours expressed in the picture, and then the orange-y coloured tent seems to resemble a place of warmth and comfort. It also makes a nice sort of contrast to the cold :D
