Night at the Lake by eleko7 Night at the Lake by eleko7
I got the idea for this fantasy manipulation when browsing through my photograps. The lake is called Trytetjonn and is located just 10 minutes by foot from my house here in Telemark county, Norway. So the background image is mine. I tried to recreate that simultaneously creepy and cool feeling you get when in the forest or nearby the lake at night with full moon above you. At the same time I tried to convey that "there's something out there except us" idea that we might not want to know about. And that we and what we know is very small compared to all nature's secrets. Very curious what you think of it :)

I think it's looking really good already. I love how you've put in the reflections and ripples to make it seem more unified. The way you've made the lighting match is great too. The only thing I might suggest is a bit more light in the lighter patches of grass to give a little more definition. Overall it's got a great atmosphere. :)

Thank you *Rovanna for sharing your opinion. I have had back-and-forth thoughts on exact same "lighting of the grass" matter and in the end decided to go with the darker version :) Thank you!
