  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 06:22:46 AM
Thanks for the comments Robert, much appreciated.
I do like this image, simple and effective. If theres one thing I'd wish to change it might be the reflection of the bank behind the boat, to something more unifying. However it is very well observed and very well executed. Congratulations on yellow, very much deserved.

Most excellent in the words of Bill and Ted! You definately deserve it! Didn't get to see this in voting, but if I did I would say:
Perfection in lighting, superbly subtle in composition! Love the way the boats tones are blending into the tones of the reflected trees and contrasted against the blues of the water. Looks like a great place to take a nap!
Yours TC

Coming back for comment, I did like this image a lot even though there's a little unsightly noise but one of the best in the challenge...

04/30/2005 11:59:50 PM
Lovely! Nice color and detail. A little less noise would be nice.

I love the blues, the soft lighting, and how the lighting brings out details in the boat. 9

04/30/2005 03:24:00 PM
So beautiful and pastoral
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2005 12:20:14 PM
The reflection is good. Something in the opposing corner would work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2005 11:31:55 AM
It's a good idea, however I would of reframed the shot... put the boat in the lower left third quadrant thus showing the trees (im assuming they are treees from the reflection) You picked a great time of day for the shot. I'm giving it a 6. I'd love to see you go back and recompose this!

I love this photo. The light on the boat is beautiful, and the way the water blends into the shaded area is very pleasing. Nice, rich colors, and it is SHARP!! Meets challenge exceedingly well.

04/29/2005 04:47:02 PM
This is very nice. The lighting is lovely. I'd love to see it with a bit less negative space, too!

04/29/2005 01:33:27 PM
wonderful colors, interestingly serene scene, (wish to top ripples weren't there??) as presented, one of my favorites this challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 10:49:00 AM
Nice colors... I'm thinking you could have cropped a bit off the bottom and still captured the essence of the challenge.

04/29/2005 08:55:02 AM
I am really drawn to this image. I think youve done a wonderful job capturing minimalism!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 04:46:40 AM
Very good indeed! This is a very nice shot, still not breathtaking and lacks that "wow" factor for me personally but it would look good in a frame up on somebodys wall and I like it, gave it a 8. Good luck in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 03:00:08 AM
Awesome mood as a result of the late afternoon colors. 9
