Happened upon this purely by chance. It was really foggy, so I went out looking for a specific shot (not this). Took a wrong turn, and this little gem was staring me in the face :O)

pp:
convert from RAW
crop
curves
channels
selective color
cloned out some minor branches and stuff in the water
curves again
resize
usm
add border
sfw

Hope it does okay! :O)

post challenge:

Couldn't be happier with the result on this ! To finish 7/500+ in a field of such incredible images obviously put a big smile on my face. The most important thing here - is that I've really been searching to "find myself" as a photographer... to figure out what I really want to capture. This is definitely along those lines. :O)

Thanks for the comments & the favs! You'll definitely see more of this theme...

A language of image, telling me something very important that I will never understand.

Wow. This is an amazing image. By far the best I have seen yet in this challenge. The reflection is perfect and the mist adds a magical feeling to it. If something could be better it would be that the blue tone on the bottom of the image is little out of sync with the gray overall tone. But thats a small detail.

This is so beautifully serene. Perfect reflection.

8 - Beautiful image. Sure the detail is much more discernible 'bigger'. Like the crop. This image/scene probably lends itself well to a few variations.

Oh, that is beautiul, I gave a sigh of appreciation just now when the shot loaded! Absolutely gorgeous. What delicious blues, and I love the crisp silhouette of the tree on the right. Mist is very atmospheric, and contrasts nicely with the sharp detail of the tree. There's something quite poignant about this tree in the middle of water, it works on many levels... life, death, clarity, mystery and I love the haunting stillness.

An elegant and magestic composition. Beautiful.

There are some nice elements in this picture but the crop is wrong. The main subject seems to be intruding rather than featuring.

Beautiful shot!
