Hinterer Gosausee

This shot was taken at the shore of the "Hinterer Gosausee" (Upper Gosau Lake). It's in a deep caldera where the mountain around it are about 2000m higher. Amongst them the "Dachstein" which is the highest peak in Styria. Autumn is a it's peak now and you can imagine what pleasure it was up there.

I find this the best of your recent foliage shots. 8) The others seem far too busy for the sharp lens you're using, at least for me (but I'm far from an expert!). The mountain backdrop breaks this one up nicely IMO. ^^ :+fav:

The "curse" of a sharp lens is, that downsizing for web presentation becomes very hard and sometimes almost impossible.

Yeah I can understand that. ^^; Not really anything you can do about it, except maybe artificial blurring in Photoshop. :D Still, most of the time that's one of the best lenses I've ever seen (I'm a fan of sharp focus). What was it called again?

Haha sorry, brain fart. Thanks. If ever I want to spend a scary amount on a lens, I shall pick this one. :D

It's not too expensive ... a bit over 300 Euros on Ebay. For that kind of lens a bargain.

Sorry to bug you further, but I just remembered I could never find a version of it for anything other than something called a Contax G2? Is that the camera you use? Or are there versions for say, Nikon or Canon?

My Zeiss lens is for Contax and I use a Contax adapter on my Canon 5D ... works like a charm.

i like the bands of colour - greens, warms, blues. the comp is quite busy with the dominant peak competing a little, IMO, with the busy FG/MG areas making me a little uneasy with it.

You might be right. But with some many layers and rocks and foliage everywhere, a composition like that would be hard to simplify. I tried to use contrast and saturation to separate the levels a bit.

yep, a challenge here. but you did well with it nonetheless.

Lovely, I especially like how the sharpness of the trees adds a 3d effect to them :) very well done! :)
