H.A.P.P.Y. B.I.R.T.H.D.A.Y. Robert, and what a wonderful thing to happen on your Birthday, with receiving the 100 favorite, with this image, as it is definately one of your very best mate.....

I do not make much of a presence on this website but first and foremost I loved your Water II entry and am thrilled you won a blue ribbon. Secondly, I just had to make a post challenge comment because otherwise I would be the only DPC'r left in the Northern Hemisphere who hadn't. With greatest respect, congratulations.

04/05/2006 05:28:05 AM
you know bear, i keep coming back to this winning photo of yours - not a norm for me (in the exception of JJBeguin's self-potrait). I was thinking of something for the Textures IV challenge and was thinking - this "Flood Tide & Cattails — Sunset" could have been a hell lot better looking if allowed the 720pixels and 200kb requirements.

Congrats once again on this wonderful photo and the ribbon - Just goes to prove yet again how good you are with landscapes (I'm jealous!)

cheers

Congrats Bear,

I guess this would be considered an 'estuary'? haha! This is a marvelous photo that is totally deserving of top honors, and is an inspirational masterpiece that gives me hope of someday capturing its equal.

My hat’s off to you.

Best regards,
Steve (naldslc)

Obviously, I am in the presence of a Master Photographer! Thank you for the privilege of learning from the Best.
Your photo (as described by many & the rating) is Amazing! I'm sure that the moment you captured this vista must have been equally amazing.
The LORD is kind in that way. He gives us a one-of-a-kind original painting every evening, then takes pride in His highest creation enhancing His daily painting with unique personality!
Allow me to add my own 10, after the fact. Wow!!!!!!! SCH

Holy crap Batman, Robert finally won his second ribbon and it's a blue even! Where the hell have I been for the last week to have missed this awesome shot! What can I say. The lines are incredible! The sunset is beautiful but isn't the subject of the shot. The reflections, the foreground focus... Kudos!
Yours as always
TC

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/03/2006 11:06:15 AM
Congratulations on your first blue, Robert. This was one of my favorites. The movement of the grasses gives adds another element to what would otherwise appear a perfectly serene image---it makes one realize that those clouds reflected in the water may have blown over in a few minutes or even a few seconds, capturing the feeling of how fleeting a beautiful sunrise can be.

Woohhooooo!~!!!!! Way to go Robert :-) Congrats, very well deserved and long, long overdue! Very stunning image.
...and on a sidenote, this is a perfect example of what someone told me long ago here on dpc- "Getting a ribbon is not about producing an image that will get an awful lot of high votes so much as it is producing an image that will not get many low votes." I don't know if I've ever seen a shot here that scored this well (no low votes), and I think that says A LOT! Well done indeed Robert...why you're one of my top favs!
Can't wait to see you in the next Masters Challenge :-)

Congratulations, for starters :) What I think makes this image special is the reflected height of the clouds that you can't see in the sky itself... gives it a great sense of depth and draws me right in. Of course the colors, the warm glow on the cattails, the scene itself are all marvelous. Congrats again, great win.

Oil painting and the cattails are glowing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2006 11:09:02 PM
Boy do I like this shot. The cattails soaked in the golden sunlight really make this for me. The sky reflecting in the small water ripples reminds me of the brush strokes to a painting. My top pick for this challenge. 10

03/30/2006 09:45:15 PM
Simply wow. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Whose hogging all the sunsets? Stunning once more. I know, maybe there are sections of the world that are still suck in winter "drab" because you are sucking all the color to your spot. Good luck.

Oh and I love the line of cattail-like plant life on the right horizon. The beautiful stocks just continue around the lake I suppose.

A nice switch from the basic, 'Gee, look at the colors on THAT sunset!'. This works nicely for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2006 10:46:30 PM
Wow...this looks like a Bear_Music shot. Simply amazing colors and composition. I like the reeds in the foreground, it adds what I think is the crowning element to a great landscape. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2006 12:23:58 PM
Very beautiful! The highlights on the grass plumes really make this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2006 11:41:11 AM
awwww....

a nice gorgeous shot with foreground, center ground, deeper ground, and background. All nicely focused. Wow...

It's NOT a waterfall, not droplets and not a splash.....I think it's a ribbon.
