Without lighting up a fire this place would be unbearable, the mosquitos are quite agressive, but photographicly this place is beautiful.

Captured at Liskumukka near Puntta in Reisadalen, Nordreisa, Troms, Northern Norway.
Nikon D810, 15mm, F8, Iso 64 - 4 shot HDR.

Thought I’d try my hand at a critique this morning. These are just my opinions and thoughts. I am not a professional photographer so I can’t give you insights into the technical aspects but there are a few things I would like to say about this particular image.

When I first saw the small image, it reminded me of a Bob Ross painting so I clicked on it out of curiosity and because I follow you and I like your photography.

What is interesting about this picture is all of the different angles-mostly triangles. You have the forest triangle, the mountain triangle and the sky triangle and the grass triangle and reflection triangles. I think there is a good balance of dark and light and the mist on the water is beautiful and I always love reflection pictures.

With all of these angles it is tricky to find the main focus. The triangles of the sky and water draw attention to the middle wooded area. The remaining triangles of the green areas draw attention to a distant point out of view or to a place with just water/mist.

When I first looked at this picture, I saw the beautiful view but then my focus was drawn to the craggly mess on the right and then to a lesser degree the grassy area on the left.

The end focus image, in this case is the craggly mess, is the area where the eye is drawn to either because of the focus or by intent and it is ultimately the final impression of the image. It will be what ultimately determines whether they will like it enough to buy it kind of thing or want to hang it on their wall.
So then the question becomes, does the artist want us to reflect on the craggly messes in our lives or the beauty. There is value in both.

This picture is interesting in that way. Personally, I would shift the focus with cropping just a bit. I would crop the bottom to leave about half of the grassy area. On the right, I would crop it to leave just a hint of the craggly stuff and its reflection. By doing this, it shifts the final focus and end image, at least for me, to where the light beam is coming down and hitting the water. To me, this creates a sense of intrigue and wanting to explore just around that bend and draws me into the picture instead of outward.

You have another picture that I love that illustrates this very well. Fire in Uttakleiv It also has interesting angles but the eye is drawn immediately to the sunset and stays there. The foreground rocks offer visual balance but also serve to direct the eyes to the sunset, thereby making the sunset the final eye resting spot.

I like your work and look forward to seeing more of it. Thanks.
