I like this picture so much. It depicts some kind of reflection on life and what it takes on us to view life.The green leaf shows that amidst the turmoil happening around us-there could be hope.

Congratulations tjkaer!

They are really appreciated. :)

I tried to post this during the challenge, but obviously failed.

I just wanted to say that after looking at some 400+ pictures that were mosly tree canopies, I really loved the simplicity of this shot. The tone and color are beautiful.

This Photo is in a class by itself. Should have been a BLUE Ribbon (or maybe even some color higher!)

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2005 05:27:52 AM
I love how the branch feels like it's floating with the coloration of the background water...it's almost "invisible" feeling color wise. The branch sits there gracefully and poised. Beautifully executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2005 05:03:43 AM
nice :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 08:15:08 PM
I love this photograph. Not very original seeing a branch, but with the reflection of the branch it's more original. It has great composition and I think you did a good job.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2005 04:42:16 PM
I really like this shot. I wish the tip of the top branch had been as dark as the rest of the branch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2005 03:12:37 PM
I once took a picture similar to this. Unfortunately, mine was hazy and could not be developed correctly in the darkroom. Well done, it's very unique.

Very simple and beautiful. Image is very pleasing.

8 - Very nice and simple beauty. Water looks mirrored and calm. Criticism; difficult, maybe more 'empty space' in one of the corners, not sure. Perhaps sharper on the tip of the branch, but I think the focus is on the reflection, so might not have worked as well as what you have achieved. Nice soft lighting, A touch more color, whether in those leaves, or the incorporation of sunrise/set, may have added a little 'drama', but the simplicity is very nice as is. Not sure on the frame.

It is the simplicity of this photo that makes it a winner to me, and although it is a literal representation of the challenge topic I find it to be an extremely beautiful image and has an extremely strong composition. Bravo! 10
