I just took this picture of my friend Justin fishing at the cottage. I liked the way my camera captured the colors in the sky and I made sure to use the tree leaves as a 'frame' so he looked small against the big lake.

I thought I had already commented on this one because I remember seeing it before. Just awesome, rich colors and nice exposure here. I love the reflections and the sillouhette. I like that, even though it fit that challenge perfectly and the framing certainly adds to the shot, it's a photo that stand well on its own outside of the challenge too. The only thing I would change is a slight counter clockwise rotation to straighten the horizon. Leave everything else as is! Hope this is helpful.

Joey;

I think this is a phenomenal picture - I'm very surprised it didn't score in the top 20, if not the top 10. Keep working at it. You're very talented.

Well... 2 out of the 3 photos that I picked for ribbons made it. I had yours picked as the 3rd ribbon so I really don't understand what it is doing all the way down here. I personally think it's an awesome shot... so keep your chin up and try again. I'm sure you'll wow us the next time around!

Horizon is way of horizontal - use crop in PS to rectify this

Love it!!! The colors, the framing, the silhouette. They all work out well together. Good luck in the challenge!

P.S. I'm betting on a ribbon here.

Nice colors - I'd be temped to level out the horizon.

This is a nice exposure, but I think the tilt is distracting. I would have levelled the horizon.
