[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was staying in the Nambucca area for work and was lucky enough to catch the beautiful Numbucca River on a misty morning.

The town of Macksville was named after Angus Mackay and Hugh MacNally, where it was originally called Macks Village. It was changed to Macksville in 1889.

Ciao Lisa. What a dreamlike scene beautifully captured with a magical glow over a warm palette. The dark silhouetted shapes accentuate the overall softness. Enchanting. Ciao. Klaudio.

Ciao Lisa

I like the monochromatic tones resembling a sepia image. Good sharpness and atmosphere with ripples on the water adding texture at right. The functional bridge provides a focal point. Tfs!

Ciao cara Lisa, gran fascino, fantastica luce dorata, magica atmosfera, bravissima, un caro abbraccio, Silvio

Hello Lisa,
You captured such a fantastic light and haze. It's like a painting by Turner. Marvelous.
Kind regards,

Ciao Lisa,
Beautiful ethereal composition. Superb lights and colours; well considered framing.

Ciao Lisa,

Il faut se lever tôt pour prendre les plus belles photos. C'est vrai que la rivière est belle et le pont parait lui aussi très bien dans cette purée de poix. Tous les éléments sont parfaitement placés dans le cadre.



Hello dear Lisa, very good photograph of this misty morning, very well composed and captured in this interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good day and happy start to the week.
Affectionate greetings from the south of Spain.

Hello Lisa,
What a fantastic photo with wonderful warm colours and the light of the morning sun trying to pierce through the morning mist. The silhouettes of the bridge and the trees are beautiful against the warm colours of the background.

Dear Lisa,

What a beautiful, dream-like composition! The mist creates a very special atmosphere.
I really like the result!
Best Wishes,

Hello Lisa,
Mist can create such mysterious and beautiful scenes. I like the softness of this photo, and the small, dark silhouettes on the water. The muted reflections and soft ripples are also very nice.

Eccola la Lisuccia che mi ha sempre affascinato, la Signora delle Acque.
Paesaggio da favola, la luce dorata è meravigliosa e riesce a trasmetterci un riflesso carico di poesia.
Un abbraccio

Ciao cara lisa,

I am happy that you now appear here more often. So many our fiends disappeared. I haven't seen John for ages, also Nel is absent. Sad.
Marvelous picture of this river in the misty morning. Wonderful colours and the haze at sunrise. Simple breath taking.

Kind regrad s Malgo

Ciao Lisa,
This is an amazing moment! Lovely management of sunlight and well captured mood. Great work!

Hi Lisa

very good place to work if you wake up early and walk with a camera!
A dreamy world with the fog covering the river and the sun setting
Hat off

Hi Lisa
There is always magic on a misty dawn that you made the very best of what you could with wonderful warm tones using very good photographic techniques. Excellent layers disappearing into dreamy nothingness and wonderful feeling of distance afforded by glimpse of the spanning bridge. The markers' sharp in-focus are vital anchor points, drawing viewer into the moody and fuzzy world .....

Fantastic work!
Best wishes

Hi Lisa,
This mist looks just great. Everything is so soft and still we can see through the air to background. The sun is well placed and colour scheme is very relaxing.

Ciao Lisa,
Che bel paesaggio pieno di misterio sotto la nebbia mattutina, pero illuminato dal sole che sta profilando nel cielo e riflessando nell'acqua.
Fantastica luce dorata !
Una cattura da non perdere ! Congratulazioni.
Cari saluiti !

Hello, Lisa!

The fog gives an interesting atmosphere to the image, making these pieces of wood(?) and their reflections really stand out in the composition, and the light is fantastic here! Wonderful job!

Hi dear Lisa
Un joli mélange de la brume et de la lumière donnant une atmosphère particulière , bien agréable a regarder

Dear LIsa,

What an ethereal view of the Numbucca. The mist is punctuated by the sharp silhouettes in jutting out of the river. The monochromatic nature of the photo is especially eye catching.

Warm regards, Lisa.


Hello Lisa
Wow, what a fantastic and dreamlike scene with this splendid river and the sun just peeping trough the early morning mist. The warm colors of the rising sun are simply gorgeous.
have a great time

Olá Lisa,
bonita mesmo essa cerração na composição, e os tons dourados da luz ficaram excelentes. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Hi Lisa
who's this? Lisa???? is that you? haha, great to see you back here, we miss you! We need you!

this is a scene that reminds me of Noel's style (another TE member who's been away now for long long periods, same with John). Noel loves to point his camera AT the sun, something in never do. But hey, the results can be great, just as we see here.

reflections, misty fog, mysterious mood and setting, funky gold colors, lots to like here. wonderful atmosphere.
I like it
