Hi there,

This is a very beautiful scene which has been very well captured. Lovely composition and the DOF is great with everything sharp from front to back.

Well done !

Paul, beautiful photograph! Very impressive. What time of year did you take the photograph. Timing is everything! Its difficult to capture natures beauty! You seem to have been fortunate to have done so! I loved it.

Thi is the very kind of shot I am seeking to do in medium format.

A number of people feel their Nikon D70 cannot capture good pictures. But, I've often thought that it's the photographer, skill, use of proper filters and photoshop work that makes the image. And, you've proven this.

I need to get another adapter for my new, wider angle lenses to hold my Singh Ray filters. Which series of the Neutral density GRD filter did you use? The P series, or the Z series?

Congratulations on your second place winner and POTD.
