I used a 17mm Canon Tilt-shift lens…to get that beautiful lake-bottom foreground. With the expanded range of focus, I took 1 shot. Later, I used the “scale” took in Photoshop to make the buildings in the background larger, since a 17mm will push the background away. With 42 mp, it held together pretty well…but am interested in thoughts there. (Just got a 61mp Sony A7R4…which should make future shots even easier to scale). Settings: 1/50 sec @ f/20, ISO 100, 17mm focal length.

This is nicely composed. I like all of the various layers in the composition. Overall it feels soft - especially in the background mountains. I think it could also use a boost in contrast with some deeper shadows especially in the background trees.
