Mmmm...this is a very peaceful shot. I would love to sit at the dock with a cup of hot cocoa and listen to the frogs and crickets and just enjoy the beauty.

Congrats! Excellent shot and well deserved ribbon!

Hi,

About the question of layers... I didn't do any adjustments with this one. I'm happy to send the original into DP Challenge. This is actually a very good camera -- see review at: //www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/DX6490/D64A.HTM
Believe it or not, I think any camera could have captured this shot. It was a very grey mist and the water was extremely still - a great advantage to living in Victoria, British Columbia at this time of the year.

Congratulations on a lovely image and the ribbon.

Contratulations! Your image is stunning, certainly worth a 10 and a ribbon.

Are you sure layers are not separated and tuned here?
Can't believe such balanced image came out of camera,this should be checked ,no offense!

My wife is very upset with me because I beat her in this challenge. ;) We took photos the same morning separately, and didn't tell each other our subject, etc., until the entries were on DPChallenge. I actually thought hers would do better, so this ribbon was a nice surprise. Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments. You guys are very encouraging and I hope I can live up to this in the future. I was very lucky that we woke up to mist on the lake that morning.

I like the way the mist covers the tree line. Nicely done.

Very Nice, very Nice indeed, I am waiting for the first bass to jump out of the water. So silent I am pushing this one up my list...

Lovely mood, great clouds and reflections, good composition, a slight desaturation of the plants and grass in the front would have made it even better, in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2004 10:25:27 AM
BEAUTIFUL SHOT. FOR ME NOT HAVING A SINGLE RIPPLE ON THE WATER PORTRAYS THE SILENCE.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful scenic. I feel like the tree line is a little underexposed, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2004 08:36:06 PM
Nice job capturing the challenge! This deserves a 8.

Good pastoral scenes like this convey a good sence of quiet and tranquility. Well done.

Well done. I think this fits the challenge well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this is nice and it conveys a calm peaceful feeling, I would've liked to see it cropped at the tree line to give the beautifully smooth water a little more drama.

Lovely image of perfect serenity. Nice mist - pic would be even better if there was more - where is the giant portable mist machine when you need it? :D

This scores very highly with me.

Yes...I can feel the silence here...right before the little critters awaken and start making their little noises. Very nicely done!

beautiful - the colors are wonderful, creates the perfect mood - 10

Picture captures "silence" like few others. I'm not sure how to improve the image; I like it a lot! Makes me want to go out on that little pier and set a spell... <g>

I see a bit of resemblance here between this and the Morning Meditation photo. Couldn't decide which to go with, so you went w/both? I imagine this is just out of view to the left of the deck (women on the bench). I like the one w/the women a bit better.

You've captured silence here. One of my favorites. To up the score from me, I'd like the horizon leveled.

I love it!

Would have liked to have been there! Score: 8

Beautiful shot, definitely conveys "silence". Love the sort of blue misty tones and the stillness of the water.

Absolutely breathtakingly fantastic!!! 10+++++

nice image. really great water color and shadows and reflections. nice image. Perhaps it is a little uneasy to have the horizan a little off horizontal... all the water should be running to the left side of the screen.

Nice sharp shot. Love the cloud reflections in the water.
