There are a number of really nice images here but interestingly enough I think my favourite is the Car Graveyard shot. The landscapes are very nice as well and that light-painted tree is neat. It's quite a varied set!

Awesome series Marko. Very hard to pic a fave here, but really likin' the leaning tress with mountain back ground, and that last one with the amazing light.

Wow! very hard to choose here but if I have to, I go for Shot 14 - Reflection at Emerald lake!!!! I have not yet succeeded in getting a good reflection shot yet.

Awesome series, Marko! I dunno which I would choose as a favourite. Lol, probably the Family of Man shots, I think. :)

I enjoyed every one of these photos. Nicely done and you obviously followed all the advice you have for us. My favorite is the sunset shot, #11 with the reflection of the trees and sky. Wonderful photograph. Thanks for sharing these.

Interesting Bow reflection.

I also like the Finger Skim shot, cool silhouette and blues.

Trees on the Bow River is also cool for the light ... albeit a bit dark on the left side.

The Vermilion Lakes stumps in the morning is a very cool scene as well ... love the Da Vinci male/female thing with the reflection and it's source

Finally the light painted tree is interesting as well.

Great set Marko. Lots of variety. Hard to choose as they are all so good, but I think my favourite is #14, Reflection at Emerald Lake. Love the pastel colours.

Really nice set of shots. The 'light painted tree' image is my fave. The warm golden colour contrasts so nicely with the cool tones of the background mountains and sky, and the foreground tree at left ties the two areas together.
