The warm tones of sepia really flow with the semi-barrenness of the land that makes the picture paradoxically cold. The reflections in the lake, the sky and trees, draw the viewer in to what seems to be one of the most vividly colorful parts of the shot. The light falling on the reeds and grass in the forefront of the picture as well as the slight blur of the entire picture adds to the somehow dreamlike quality of the photo. The shadows in the top left, around to the bottom right, frame the whole shot beautifully. A peaceful place to be on perhaps a cooler day.

This reminds me of home in Indonesia..... And I love it! The scenery depicted here was absolutely breathtaking, and I feel as if the photograph sucks me into this beautiful place as I continue to stare at it. POLAND-LEVEL-FABULOUS WORK!!
Your pictures are SO BEAUTIFUL! The whole gallery is amazing. Keep up the good work! I liked this one especially because I was just out at a lake near our house in Minnesota taking very similar ones. They're here if you want to look: [link] Keep making beautiful things!
Hmm...I like it. The contrast of yellow/blue is dulled and toned in a way that has aesthetic value, and the various levels of light and dark are pleasing to the eyes.
However, as a whole, I feel that something in this picture gives me a feeling that is hard to describe - perhaps "flat"? When I say "flat", I mean as an emotional adjective, not as a literal description of the dimensions. Either "flat" or perhaps slightly surreal, or just not real at all. *shrugs*
The photo actually looks surprisingly like a large pond in a preserve I went on a kayaking tour in. The group got lost in the maze of waterways after trying to return from what turned out to be the bay nearby. I continually got stuck in the mud.
