Lake Louise is one of the most photographed lakes in Banff National Park and possibly the world. In winter, people walk across its snow and ice covered surface to reach the southern shore. Unfortunately, these foot steps marr the otherwise pristine lake in winter.

Naturally I would have liked to use advanced editing but I don't think its too bad with the editing I had available (levels, boost to clarity,vibrance and saturation in LR2 then exported to TIF. In PSP XI I resized, sharpened and exported as JPG)

Greetings from the Critique Club...

I like this image. I like the tracks at the bottom because the lead the eye into the mountains. I wish the Sun wasn't quite so overexposed, but then the mountains would have been even darker and being a basic challenge, multiple exposures were out. I also would have liked to see the mountains lighter, but per above, you were limited.

One thing that could be better is there are halos around the edges of the mountains. I usually see these appear from too much sharpening or other processing in high contrast areas.

Sorry I can't give you a better critique, but I don't think there was much you could do better under the circumstances.

if those track marks where gone the photo would be that much bit better, but its still a good overall photo, i like the sun just peaking over the mounting tops.
