No 1680x1050? :-(

This is a nice picture, but the three specs of dust in the upper left corner really detract from the beauty of it. That is a 5 second fix in photoshop, so why wouldn't you do it?

More importantly, why don't you clean your sensor?
Great article here on cleaning sensors: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Photography-Tips/Sensor-Cleaning.aspx
Was a lens hood used? I know its 10mm focal length but you can still get a lens hood to reduce the flare from the sun.

That being said, this is still a great picture and those issues don't really distract from the beauty of the image overall.

Thanks guys. I got so caught up in the picture itself I didn't even notice the dust specs. Now, they look hideous. I'll have to clean my sensor. Also, I did use a lens hood, the sun was really strong that morning. I took this right as it was coming up and it was a very clear day so the sun was pretty strong.

Oh yeah, I'm not sure why it wasn't put up in 1680 x 1050. Sorry.

tip: if u can use one of the HDR exposures of the sun area and merge it together with the high light you might get some detail back! dust always check before you go to a location if you change lenses do it against the wind, sml dust spots easy to remove if you got photoshop! what camera did you use plz?

Camera Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi
Image Date: 2008:10:03 06:54:13
Focal Length: 10.0mm
Exposure Time: 10.000 s
Aperture: f/16.0
ISO equiv: 100

That's the embedded EXIF info; for those using Firefox, the FxIF add-on allows you to easily view and copy EXIF info, fyi.

Yeah, not all flare is controllable. It's not too bad at all though.

The Original picture looks Great! Only you have slight errors, like TOO MUCH EDITING! I mean the lake in the distance look pretty well but the lake that is closer to the camera looks quite FAKISH. Why don't you don't give the water near the camera LESS smooth editing?

In all honesty, it wasn't edited that much. Yes, it is HDR, but I only use HDR to get the picture to look as close as possible to what I saw in person. I'm not a big fan of oversaturated, fake looking HDR landscapes. The colors you see, that's how it looked that morning when I took the picture. The water, that's just a slow shutter speed, it gives it the soft look, that really had nothing to do with editing. Everyone, thanks for looking.

Looks like a great picture, but it seems like quite a few resolutions are missing...no 1440x900 or 1280x800? It'd probably make it onto my desktop if there were a few more resolutions up. Too bad...

Great! I always like slow shutter water, and this is one of the better shots I've seen. The image itself is also pretty stunning to look at, minor flaws aside.

One of my favorites on the site. I love the color and comp on my Dual Screen. Sometimes I just look at my empty computer and it looks like a window. Great image!

I flawlessly got this to 1680x1050 by reducing the 1920x1200 to 87% in Microsoft Paint. I tried other free editors, but Paint allowed me to reduce the size without affecting the quality AT ALL. Anyway, I did that because I loved this one so much that I just had to have it, and I wasn't going to let the lack of a 1680x1050 get in my way. :) For 1440x900, reduce the 1920x1200 to 75%. For 1280x800, reduce it to 66%. Again, use Paint, and it should be fine.

Doh. I discovered that it should be more like 87.5% for 1680x1050 from 1920x1200, so I recommend 88%. The reason is that at 87%, it's just a tiny bit too small. But at 88%, it's too big, but I'm only losing maybe like 5 pixels around the entire circumference of the image, and it's not enough to really notice unless you're paying extremely close attention! So, similar adjustments may need to be made for the smaller resolutions.
