I prefer the other one. This does not have the same "drama" that comes with that storm (imho).

That's an intense and dramatic image.
Congrats on your top 10.

Absolutely beautiful as always! I love the dramatic sky. Congratulations on the top ten!

Very cool--I'll have to read up on tone mapping. I love how painterly the bottom portion looks. I also like the composition. But one minor crit: I am not as sure I like the effect on the darker clouds and proximate sky!

Congratulations on top 10 and a great score.

Congratulations!

This is one of the prettiest images I've ever seen. This would make a great jigsaw puzzle, and I sincerely mean that. I added this one to my favorites.

Two top 10's in a row! Great finish and great image Bear, congrats!!

congrats on a top ten finish. I like the processing done here. It looks like an oil painting. Good contrast from the weak ambient light or blocked sunlight. It's a dark sunny day .

Beautiful colours, I would favour a slight crop of the sky,it seems to be fighting for attention a little, but what a wonderful image Robert.

By far one of my favorites! Beautiful!!!

This is an awesome photo!
When you have ingredients like Water, Boats, Fall Colors, Dramatic sky and the Sun's warm colors, it only follows that scenes like this exist for the appreciative eyes of those whose presence is part of this exquisite grandeur!

Thanks for the Dream...!

I really like your post-processing, as it looks like a painting. I might have cropped a bit off the top. Regardless, one of my favs in this challenge.

just so dramatic ....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2006 01:17:12 PM
Beautiful. This has an unreal quality of an artist's painting. Is it because everything in the picture is in such sharp focus?

Perfect. Great exposure, lighting, color and wow.

I really like how vibrant the colors are and the way the sun reflects off the boats. Something about the clouds look odd but I can't put my finger on it. Good job though. 7

Beautiful Light and tonal qualities. I was just at a Wedding Recption there last weekend. I see some similar qualities in our entries. Is it possible that you are the photographer that everyone seems to be mistaking my entry for?

High pixel unsharp mask appears to have been used here and the unnatural cast of shadow it makes around bright spots in clouds I find distracting. From the trees on downwards, it is a nice shot: I am especially fond of the grass ad the wooden pier as lit by the warm morning light.

"The HDR effect" immediately springs to mind. "Try to think beyond the effect" says another part of the mind. It's unreal. It's lovely, but unreal. The composition is nice regardless of the effect. I think I like it. 9. - back again: make that a 10.

Nice, rich colors and beautiful lighting. One of my favorites. 10

Looks like Robert giving HDR another ride??? Very dramatic lighting and pleasing.

Very painterly. Love the sky and the detail and color on all of the boats. This is print material!
