I debated long and hard about this submission. I wasn't sure how it would be received without the traditional rainbow colors. In the end I figured I would submit it and let the voters decide if it fit well enough into the challenge.

I'm glad I put this one in. Top 10 and a new personal best. I'm a happy camper. Thank you to everyone for the great comments.

The use of reflective color from the trees adds a smooth touch to this photograph. It's not over powering but effective. Composition, lighting, and all are well done. Great Work. 9

A beautiful and fresh approach to this challenge. you have a fine shot. I like the lighting and the colour, not to overdone and the reflections are beautiful. I'm pleased to see that you have placed your subject off center and allowed the ripples in the water to carry the shot. This has a warm feel to it and the tones are just right. Wonderful capture. I hope it does well here.

I like the simplicity of your composition. A really good fall landscape.

Absolutely gorgeous - I can almost hear the silence! In my top two of the challenge.

Very nice indeed. I think you could have pushed the saturation up a bit though, it does seem a little on the dull side.

I do like the muted colors. 8

Although this does not have all the traditional colors of a rainbow, I find it so pleasing and beautiful that I just don't care. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2007 11:50:09 PM
My choice for the blue! Beautiful, stunning, and soothing too. 10!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is lovely. I only wish those two waves (or whatever they are) on the left weren't there. It's still one of my favorites.

Excellent balance in this image - the lily pads so perfectly mirror and support the canoe. The colors are so warm and vibrant and the 'aurora' created by the reflection of the fall colors is such a refreshing rainbow

This is absolutely stunning and a wonderful take on the challenge. Peaceful is an understatement. Bumping to 10.

this is beautiful! The reflected foliage actually reminds of a rainbow. A very serene scene!

Really very beautiful image. Not 'rainbow' for me though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2007 04:51:09 AM
This is an excellent picture but I don't think it fits the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2007 01:09:28 AM
Subtle, but good! I like the softness in this, and the composition. And the relection. The rainbow doesn't seem to be emphasized much, nor be a central subject, but I like the shot. Seven.
