Not bad for a view from a McDonalds parking lot. I took this on my way home from a day of fieldwork. I'm not thrilled with the way it looks when reduced to 640 pixels, but what can you do. I liked the way the bluer clouds and the dark water at the bottom sort of framed it. I debated a slightly taller crop for a while, but that had an ugly dust spot which was bugging the heck out of me, so I went with this crop. Also had a version with a duck, but it got too specklike at 640...you couldn't really tell it was a duck. Otherwise editing was levels, saturation, contrast, a little USM.

nice reflections, but I would have put the land line a bit higher.

This is a bit out of focus (on my monitor at least) but I certainly like the composition and subtle colors.

Wondefull photo, subtle colors, almost an aquarel painting in pastel teints.
One of my favourites of this challenge.

7 - Nice shot. Criticism; would like to have seen a bit more definition in the landscape(s). Nice 'soft' colors.
