I REALLY want to go here. About as bad as I want to go to Yosemite. :) Awesome shot! :)

Yosemite is easier to see from the road and to shoot the usual shots, but glacier is easier to be unique i think. but both are unforgettable.

Thanks Justelene/Justeline! It was my first DD and A great surprise.

I am sorry, but somehow I just saw your call for voters on your Greek contest. I tried to vote, but I can't read Greek! So I couldn't figure out how to.

Hope you made it to the second round in spite of me!

justeline Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2010  Professional Photographer
hehe, I guess you visited the page after voting period had finished and there were no stars there! We made it to the second round, don't worry and thank you so much for being willing to help!

I see the Justeline, Justelene part confuses you, actually it's neither, my real name is Mary (Maria in Greek) but it's your choice actually, I love all of these names! I had a conversation about this whole names confusion thing just recently with Jeroen who suggested I might suffer from multiple personality disorder [link] :fear:
:rofl:

Congratulations once again!

Haha, well multiple personalities is just a sign of a powerful imagination.

Whatever happened with the 4-eyes contest anyway? I can't even remember if I entered.

lol, either that or a sign of madness! But I've always found sane a bit boring!
We haven't got the link to the private webpage where we can see the entries and vote yet. I'm quite anxious about it, can't wait to see the photos!

glad you like it. as for the horizon, you have to remember that this is a lake, not ocean, and thus curves back toward the camera on the left, creating the illusion of a tilted horizon. i will make sure, however, that it is tack on.

If you look at the most distant part of the lake shoreline, to the left, you can see that it is beneath closer parts of the shoreline on the right. That is impossible in a correctly leveled image, therefore the image does in fact have a rotation. Sorry to be pedantic but its irrefutable, which is why I noticed!

the left-most shore is actually an island (much more discernible in large print), thus it's difference.
Reply
:iconalex37:
Alex37 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
I didnt actually mean the left most, but rather the sunny bit of distant shoreline. You can see from the height of the tree that the shore on the right is far closer. If any point of the shore is closer at all than any other point, then the waterline at that point must be beneath the more distant waterline. The only time this is not the case is if you are shooting underwater! Anyway I'll draw a line under it now, because I dont want to argue about it, I just find it hard to let things drop! Sorry about that!

like i said, thanks for the observation, you might be right. i look at it so much i have trouble examining it. my brain just wants to imprint its prior assumptions. i will give a closer exam when i have some time. easy enough fix.
