The reflected colors of autumn

I did a short trip to High Tatras last weekend and while the weather was a bit all over the place, I did manage to get few nice shots. And while most of them were very wide panoramas and huge landscape shots, I did have my 70-200mm lens with me, so I ended up taking also few more close up shots. And here is one of them :)

These are the trees right next to the Strbske pleso lake. I just loved the color here and I wanted a nice reflection. The problem was that it was a bit windy, so the lake was not stable enough. So what I did was, to get out the 11 stop ND filter I have from VF FOTO and slowed down the exposure by quite a lot. There is a bit of movement in the trees, but the reflection is just wonderful.

This is a single exposure of 80seconds, edited mostly in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
