Kathryn, I love to photograph swamps -- we have so many around Montgomery -- but I've never been able to get the wow factor in them. You've certainly taken me to school with your treatment here. It is just beautiful. Can't wait to try it.

You just had to toast me by .002 of a point, didn't you? Just kidding. Great job on a terrific image. One of my favorites of the challenge.

IMHO, this shot is begging for color
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Doesn't meet the challenge: zero.

But despite that I will upgrade it to a 10 - BECAUSE I LOVE IT! This had better ribbon or I'll run naked along the platform at Camden Town tube station. : )

This is really cool... I would never have thought to put it in sepia... but it's really neat that way. I like the detail here... and the framing... everything is really nice. -10-

The perfect sepia tone and bags of detail. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Marvellous sense of depth, and great usage of duotone. Only improvement I can think of would be to straighten the image (maybe it is level, but something about the alignment of the trees and their reflections makes it feel tilted down on the right) 8
