Landscapes are not my thing but i wanted to submit to this challenge. I was looking for some non-landscape work but i couldn't find anything that i could work with. On the last day of the challenge I decided to take a small field trip some 40km from home. It was either this or some variation on "Rose and Driftwood" that i could made at home.

I know it's not great, but i gave my best to replicate the style of "The Tetons and the Snake River".

The location is Lake Kozjak near Skopje. It's actually a reservoir created by flooding of the river Treska into it's canyon with the building of the Kozjak Dam. The location is 41.875696,21.210295 (just paste the coordinates in Google Maps).

Could be diffraction. Apparently f/16 is too small of an aperture for a 24mpx APS-C sensor. I did try some focus stacking but with no success. I'm yet to perfect this technique.

Thank you all on your kind comments.

I like this. It's composed/cropped well, all the shapes play together nicely.
