This week, the title could be "Ducks at Heathrow" : )

Now, THAT's a different interpretation of "sky" :-) Such a lovely image...

Great concept and composition! But I find the color-noise very distracting (the mottled cyan/magenta stuff). You should try Noise Ninja or Neatimage, although it gets overused a lot, for an image like this it can do wonders. Or you could just convert the image to B&W and pretend the noise is a deliberate grainy effect ;-)

I LOVE this photo! I love the mystical feel of the fog, and the feel of that minimalistic line of ducks! One of my favorites in a truly aMAZING challenge! 10

great pic, a little smoothing and noise reduction as well as selectively removal of magenta and red will really clean this up great.

Love the simplicity and beauty of this...especially in the way the sky and water are one.

Perhaps a slightly higher contrast would benefit the photo but it is nice as is.

I like this one so much, but I've got to stretch to get it on track with the challenge! Does the lack of sky here make the sky a critical element?!

:: sigh ::

Really nice image, falls shot of the prerequisite (IMHO), but I CAN make a connection & feel like I do get some sense for the sky -- alright I'll give it a 7.

There is no sky here???

that's a nice shot...perhaps a little noisy...I like the composition and simplicity

Well... I am trying to be open minded here, but this does not really say "sky" to me. I like the concept... just there's nothing to tell me this isn't just water. Maybe if it were blue instead of black and white - the sky would still blend into the water but at least there would be more for my mind to say "oh that is sky".

In my mind, I totally get what you're going for, and I love the concept and the creativity here - but at the same time, my eye does not see anything like sky (as I said, I really think blue would have helped). Because of the dual way I'm looking at this, I am not going to give you a low, DNMC score, but I think I will not score it as high as I would have in, say, a free study.
