Pangong Lake, Ladakh, India

This is the highest salt water lake in the world at 15000 feet. Line of control with China cuts right across this lake. Colors of the lake is at its best in the late afternoon.

Fixed a tiny spot on #1 pointed by Steve and replaced the image.

I like these - looks an amazing place to go. First is particularly dramatic.
What have you done to your processing? It looks so much more crisp and neat!

Thanks Pete. Don't do much other than adjust the micro-contrast and pre-sharpen with Nik software. #1 is ways off from the lake with a small window showing what was to come ahead.

nice set, agree PP is much better overall. in number 1 there seems to be a masking issue on the right hand side lake. The selection seems to have a hard edge. needs a little more feathering IMO. That aside its lovely shot, great light, my fave from the set for sure.

Nice work Sundar. The blue and browns contrast nicely. My pick is no 1. A black and white processing am also work with the varying tones.

Need to have a look at your cloning in the first picture Sundar. Can still see lines around what ever you've cloned out on the land and a little on the water.

Thanks. I have fixed it now for sure. This scene is special to me as not many would have perhaps noticed it in all the wilderness around here. My guide took me to this hidden spot on high grounds.

It's still there. The light patch on the distant shore has a line around.
Sorry, can't find any line artifact when I looked at it zooming in. Whatever lines seen around that spot look natural to me. My theory is that the drifting sand dunes near the lake shore may be the cause for this pattern. Did some more touch up and replaced the image anyhow.
