Wow... A comparison with 3029 from last week is inevitable. It is a beautiful lake for sure. I think there is at least one more pictures of it here as well.

Unfortunately I like pretty much everything else better in 3029. Nicer colors. Prettier sky. Less lens distortion. Arguably better composition (less gravel, thank you). Less human interference.

I like 3029, but think this blows it away (though I do agree with InterClaw about the sky). I prefer the colors, and think your composition is superior - there's a "completeness" to this that the other image lacks. I look at 3029 and think "that's a lovely photograph", I look at this and I feel like I could be there. Thank you!

Great scene and colours. I like it more than 3029. The processing is more gentle on this one than 3029. 3029 was oversharpened imo, at least for retina displays.

Awesome picture! Basically it's the combo of D4 and the lens blows the other one away (the price as well, no doubt :)).

3029 is a great picture too, but it feels that the exposure, clarity and shadows were a little bit over boosted. And I agree with Masterbrew, it's a bit over sharpened as well.

It's amazing that the D4 has such a wide dynamic range, it preserved the gradient of the sky while the sky was kinda flat in 3029. Good job guys! It's just a very unfair comparison to put 2 pictures on the same page.

It's different ... Mine is more lighter than him, the water is also different ...
Sinon c'est évident ceux qui préfére la mienne pose sur la mienne et ce qui préfère celle ci va venir ici, car tout est modéré, et tout ce qui est négatif va filter

Hum ... The D7000 have a better score in the Dynamic range than the D4 on DXO ... @ Frogman ...
