One of many short walk-bridges at the Blue Lagoon. This pretty girl happened to be walking/swimming past as I was shooting the bridge itself and really adds extra interest to the photo.

NO selective desat.

Same bridge as in Candid II challenge

i am adding to favs as well, for it reminds me of a place I think we would all like to be at one time or another.

Got to place this image in my fav. Looking at it again it stirs pleasant feelings because it has the quality of a surreal study.

Wonderful!!! If this is not a blue ribbon, I don't know what is. I am speechless = can't make a useful comment or suggestion. 10.

Gorgeous shot - wish I was there!

Nice tones and soft colour palette. Generally strong composition - I love how the bridge takes your eye into the frame - but the woman seems lost back there. I think bringing her closer to the foreground would separate her from the dark backround, add some weight where it is needed, and add interest.

I love this photo! It looks very eerie, and the model looks aprehensive. 9.

Simply amazing... I like the little sign of the falling figure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2005 08:30:23 PM
Great shot. My only critisism is the slippery when wet sign.

Beautifull colors, grey skys and blue water with mist in between.
I think the model is placed well in the photo, showing a sence of direction in which she is moving
Strong 7

Slippery when wet... Is it ever dry? :)
I like the composition of this, it just all comes together.

I like the girl in the photo. I think it works well with this image. It almost looks magical. Very nice. 9

Aaaagghhh! WHERE is this magical place?? Awesome! You'll have to change the title to "At the Blue Ribbon Lagoon" :-)

Eye catching, clear and sharp, nicely composed, unique look to the water. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 11:21:31 PM
Love the fog and blue/white water. Nicely focused, although the girl seems to be the center of the composition. Nice try.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 10:26:57 PM
That "Slippery When Wet" sign on the bridge throws it off. You should have taken it down for the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 09:42:43 PM
well we know where this was taken... good shot, but I think it would have been better without the swimmer... 7

Just a great photo.. nice blend of colours and that misty look sets it off nicely.

Great capture and good luck!

humans, I remember those. thanks for reminding me in the middle of this challenge, I really like it. The colors are very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 02:19:51 AM
this could of been so much better if it wasnt for the fuzz. I think the focus could of been better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 01:14:17 AM
excellent. well timed with the girl - nice "nothingness" in the background. bravo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 12:44:05 AM
At least this time I know it's NOT selectively desaturated. Pity you couldn't remove the little sign, it's a real eye'trap, but a very nice image...
