Challenge: Water (Advanced Editing I*)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S602Z
Location: Pennington Flash, Leigh, England
Date: Dec 8, 2003
Aperture: f11
ISO: 160
Shutter: 1/125
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Dec 8, 2003

Taken at 7 am at Pennington Flash, North-west England, tripod-mounted and facing away from the sun. The colours were incredibly rich (possibly even richer at the scene) and I had to alter the levels and colour balance a little to recreate them as best I could to match the actual scene. Other than this and slight crop, no other adjustments were made.

gorgeous reflections and color saturation. the moment is just right... with the light remaining on this end of the water, yet a storm looming on the horizon. perspective is drawn with the poles on the left, and the shoreline on the right leading the eye to the storm and hills beyond. lots to see.. a nice image.

Amazing sunlight and beautiful composition. The flock of birds is just too distant to form an emotive part of the shot which is frustrating. I also think that the post on the left is not quite prominent enough in the composition - which coul dhave been improved if you were closer to it and it pierced the skyline (which may not have been possible). Lovely scene.

Great reflection on the water! You're lucky that there was calm air when you took the picture.

This should rank up pretty high, IMHO. What is that in the clouds, just left of center though?

excellent photo that fits the topic well, border doesn't add much IMHO; I would have scored it very high if not for the too obvious retouch in the clouds above the far pole

Nice compostion and sprectrum of colors from the foreground to the background. Is that a flock of birds in the upper left center?

What great light. I'm guess those are birds in the center??
They almost look like dirt on the lens.
Hopefully you can clone them out. I think this is a great shot, lovely colors with wonderful focus.

Very impressive scenary. Composition is very well done. Your eyes are lead from the foreground to the background. Beautifully captured shadows reflecting off the water. That pole in the water helps to give an extra point of interest.

Stunning. Composition is excellent, the unusual light with the storm coming is very effective.

Absolutely beautiful. Great colors and I really like the framing. The rock in the water in the reflection is a bit of a distraction, but other than that it is perfect!
