shot through a UV filter smeared with Vaseline

post-challenge:

Thought some people might see the stuff at the bottom and think it was trash, it looks that way a bit to me, too. But it really isn't - that thing in the middle that looks like a soda cup or something is a round wooden post that's been hammered into the bank.

Thanks for giving me a new personal best! :)

Wow, what a dreamy effect. Like those incredible sun beams. Looking at the voting graph, 2's? and 3's? What's up with that...

Oh, I'll have to try that. That's gorgeous. I haven't got any filters but I'll try smearing vaseline on some glass.

Thank you for the beautiful reminder about the classic shooting technique with the blur filter. It makes the sunlight into a lovely foggy effect with this image. It's truly an emerald forest shot.

Such a good technique. I missed this last year. I go away in July to such verdant places...

good for you to find a way to achieve an effect like this in basic editing. it fits the challenge very well. It looks like memory as well as dream. A memory of a dream. A dream of a memory...

Cool....very "dreamy" type of photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very dreamy...well done. The "stuff" on the edge of the water looks like trash though? This would have been really great (for my personal taste) with warm tones instead of cool...6
