You're a master at reflection shots - you see them so readily and present them so beautifully!
Frank L Croston.: Ah you flatter me Elizabeth, but thank you all the same.
C'est joliment présenté, on dirait un tableau.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Martine.

This is a wonderful use of the Twig Filter, Frank, and rare to see it deployed in the Portrait format.
Frank L Croston.: It comes in handy, but it messes my bag up, I think I got the strap caught on my wrist and took it this way by accident ! Thanks Ray smile

A beautiful array of leading lines in the sky...the bare trees add just the right touch...quite a composition.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Bonnie, much appreciated.

If this is a reflection, which it must be, given your words, it's a fantastic image on your part Frank
Frank L Croston.: It is Chris, thank you so much. I recall taking it and wondering if it would work.
This is a cracker Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Bill, I'm pleased you think so.

Difficult to tell if it is a reflection but I assume it is from your words. It's incredible in that case; a brilliant shot.
Frank L Croston.: Would I fib to you Alan ? smile Yes it is, in Oak creek, thank you that is much appreciated.

This is like a fine oil painting Frank. I like the way the bare tree gives the surface a scratchy feeel.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Andrew, much appreciated.
I love the darker area at the top, which confused me, until I read your title.......beautiful, Frank! smile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Martin. I thought it needed explaining smile
Very good Frank,what's the crack with you coming over in June with what's going on.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Michael. Who knows ? I'll email you, Bud.
Another terrific shot Frank, hard to tell it is a reflection.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Brian, It took me by surprise.
well seen and presented, Frank. i like the transition from cool to dusty.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Ayush.

Excellent, but on reflection the one thing that infects the picture is the whites reflected in the clouds - know as blown. The white that is so created is then outside the camera's dynamic range and the recording program fills it with white.

The remedies that could apply - will probably not provide for satisfactory results. Eg. Graduated neutral-density filter.

Personally I hate it when I am capturing beautiful landscape and the clouds keep on blowing.
Frank L Croston.: You know Louis, I hadn't noticed how much it was blown, just one spot really. Whilst I appreciate your critique I think in this instance I can live with it. I do have a grad' neutral density filter but I admit I'm lazy about using it. One way I have cured it is by cloning the blown bits out in P.P. ( Is that cheating...Ansell Adams did it in the darkroom, so I think I'm ok . Thanks Louis.
This looks like a walk with a marvellous view. fabulous photo, Frank..
Frank L Croston.: Its a regular place we visit in Oak creek canyon Care. (Usually after lunch at a favourite cafe smile ) More of a scramble around than a walk, the creek was very low and still that day, its a favourite place for reflection shots
very cool. creepy trees
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, yes, moody trees smile
