I think this is stunning. The clear water and the misty sky are a great contrast.

Lovely! I really like how the colors move up green to orange. Wouldn't change a thing.

I really like this shot. I think the vertical "motion" of the boats is a nice touch, though I guess it could appear very busy. Also, the orange in the sky and the green in the water sets up a nice contrast!

Very neat composition and I like the way you've captured the green water in the foreground and the orange sunset in the background. I do think that the exposure is a bit too dark and would have preferred a more saturated sunset, but shooting into the sun is difficult.

Interesting manipulation of colours. Maybe a tad too dark.

Very nice. Love the subject. Love the green water, the orange sky and the pink reflected in the boat glass. Wish the detail of the boats were a little sharper. 8

Ist it the color of this pic come from shooting or after editing? BUT i love the GREENISH water more than others, if you could ever focus on water, it could be even nicer anyway, I gave a 7 GOOOD JOB, glad to view !!

i like the glassy green water in contrast with the faint orange background... when u subdued and toned down the middleground (boats & buildings) by using a cool color, the focus was shifted to the green water and orange sky.... kind of tricky to read this work but definitely met the challenge .... congrats....

i think the water at the bottom makes the shot. the 'wall' created by the boat's masts is pretty cool too. neat find.

One of my 10's for the week. The colors are almost unreal. I could look at this pic for hours.

why do you feel you have to put "secondary" in the title? If the focus is on color, people would get it.

wow,beautiful view!
05/14/2003 11:11:04 PM
Wierd colouring. It does't look natural.

Nice. I especially like the green water. Well seen.
