A Touch Of Purple by kkart A Touch Of Purple by kkart
Brainard Lake State Recreation Area, Colorado

The Indian Peaks of the Colorado Rockies reflect the pre-dawn pink and purple of the sky just before sunrise. We raced to get up here in time and just barely made it, closest call I have had with fleeting light since I started shooting to get on location and set up in time. I simply love this area, it is simply put, beautiful and has fast become one of my favorite spots.

I hope you all like it
John

Here's one of nature's shows that if a person had tried to paint it we would say it looked fake.
Hugs,

The word "majestic" popped into my head the moment I saw this... I think it fits perfectly.

Great job, John.

nice shot however there is way too much purple / magenta for my eyes, especially in the river-part :/

well considering that there is no river LOL
It's pre-dawn light, just 2 minutes before sunrise :) I am sure you can relate [link] :)

river, lake, whatever ;)
haha, when you are referring to my pic, it's neither lake nor river :P
sure, i see the similarities in the extreme purple tones, however the extreme tint in the water of your work does not work for me. maybe it's only because i'm not in the mood for loads of magenta today ;)

Gorgeous shot. Such beautiful natural lighting. Crystal clear too.
Might I ask what your method is for getting your posts to look so clear? Mine end up fuzzy.

Sure.
I went ahead and looked at your 2 latest uploads. The issue that you are uploading massively huge files. Images that are so huge that they are being auto resized to fit peoples screens. Don't do this. You should always upload web sized images which have been sharpened accordingly. If it's a landscape-- somewhere between 900px and 1280 (if it is a pano) on the longest side. DA completely ruins photos with its automatic resizing if you upload large files. As it is, DA's resizing pretty much bites. Have a look at this [link] which is an example of DA and my website host Zenfolio (which is a professional photography website host) It is, night and day.

Just upload images like this one at in your gallery [link] at that size & you will be fine.
