Obersee by SvenMueller Obersee by SvenMueller
First photo of my 3-Day Trip to the Nationalpark Berchtesgaden, Germany. I travelled with my best friend. We started at 2 o'clock in the morning and arrived at 6 o'clock to photograph with the first light (photos will follow). The following days we had wonderful weather, great locations, a good housing and a lot of fun for sure. :D Every morning we got up at half past five (I had to awaken my friend with force :D).

So more photos will follow - hope you like them. :aww:

You made my day with that pic !!! :D

Every single photo that you take is a success !!! I'm amazed by your art and photographer-vision. You should talk to the National Geographic Magazine and let them know about you. You are one of the best photographer I've ever seen. Congrats !!

I love all your other work, but my (unofficial) critique is that this image lacks impact. The scene is a beautiful location and you're captured a good mix of water, mountain, and sky. There are some decent reflections on the water, and it is a very tranquil and calm day - which is well conveyed! But I just have some constructive feedback, in case you want it. Note that it is just my opinion/impressions, and I mean it entirely in a constructive way! :)

However, the dividing line between the mountains and water near the center of the image, in this case, is visually distracting and directs the eyes towards one of the less interesting sections of the image. Especially in full view, I found that my eyes could not enjoy the view, because the focal point in the middle was small and relatively plain (the flat area of grass). And the mountains on both sides seem to box me in even more, so that rather than enjoying the vast vista, I felt like I was trapped a bit. I'm sure you probably have a good reason for choosing the portrait view, but I would have liked to see a landscape version too!

In terms of the clouds, the weather was clear and nice, but I think the image would have looked even better during sunrise / dusk. I'm looking forward to the photos that will follow! :)

Thanks for your detailed critique. I choose the portrait view 'cuz of the stones and the reflections in the water below but I unterstand what you say. I also took there a photo in landscape view - it took some time but then I will upload it.

To took there photos during sunrise / dusk is difficult - if you want to stay there at dusk / sunrise you have to overnight there (in a tent if allowed). :)

Wohnst du in der Nähe von Berchtesgaden?
Schönes Bild! Möchte da auch sehr gerne mal wieder hin, war erst letzten Herbst im Berchtesgadener Land. Aber eigentlich kann ich mir die Anreise sparen, das Allgäu bietet mindestens genauso viel :D
SvenMueller Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Ne ne war'n knapp 3 1/2 Stunden Fahrt bis wir da waren. Stimm ich dir zu - meine Gegend daheim ist leider langeweilig. Hab mir bei der Heimfahrt gedacht dass es neber der Autobahn doch auch ganz gut aussieht - hatte etwas vom Allgäu - Hügel, blauer Himmel, Löwenzahn und einzelen Bäume. Gerade jetzt im Frühling! :love: :D
acoresjo88 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Stimmt allerdings, die Löwenzahnmeere sehen schon spitze aus momentan :)
3 1/2 Stunden hab ich von daheim auch in etwa bis nach Berchtesgaden, aber is halt die andere Richtung.
