A little nitpick, though it could increase the impact of your image: the horizon isn't straight. You can fix this in Photoshop.

Thank you for your comments. I tried to keep the vertical vertical to level it, because the lake is uneven. Do you have a way to deal with that?

By vertical, do you mean the trees? One of them still seems a little tilted. Normally, water is always approximately 'tangent' to the Earth, so it's best to keep it straight horizontal no matter what the other stuff looks like -- if the other stuff is slanted, you can try and balance it by having slanted stuff in the opposite direction in your image as well.

But maybe you're talking about the curvature of the lake's surface? If so, try "Lens Correction" to adjust the distortion caused by the lens.

I love this. It doesn't look overly processed, like you could stumble on this in real life. And it's ghostly and mysterious and beautiful. Fantastic!

Thank you very much for you comments. I really appreciate it. The setting before sun rise is really what helped to get all of these nice colors, and the quietness of the place.

How do you reach 9000 pixel width with 5D MkIII? Is this a panorama?

Lovely. The contrast between the sky/water and mountains is amazing. I love the reflection of the mountains in the water.

Lovely scene, superbly composed, the pre dawn light is enchanting. The reflections in the water draw you in, and the mountain sides above make you want to cLimb and climb. Superb work. Simon
