woohoo! a 7+ :)

Thanks everyone for your votes, comments and faves. I got 6faves during voting, which is great. No other shot in the top10 got more than 6 during the voting phase ;) and by the difference in votes I can understand I got bit with DMNC at times. Not to fret this is a tiny stream alright. I did initially think I blurred out the water too much with the longer exposure.

I'm glad many of you enjoyed the image. It was a feel good image for me. I first imagined it in b/w(jpg) but was about to scrap entering the shot till I opened the RAW to check if the color version would be better, and I was so glad, it was indeed! This is probably 1 of 10 frames, this being the last one. It was getting late and since I kinda liked what I got , didn't go back to reshoot the next day, plus it wouldn't fit with my schedule.

The cucumber...? hehe. yeah the stone near the bottom left. A stone stuck in a vertical position it seems. I could clone out the little spots and/or tiny bubbles off of it.

Congratulations on your top ten entry. This was one of only seven photos I gave a "10" to for this challenge. By the way, is that a sunken cucumber in the lower left corner? :-)

Congrats on 7th. Judging by that vote pattern I'm guessing some didn't think this was river/stream enough?

Very very nice. Begs the question, did you place the seeds on the rock? Doesn't matter - still a great shot. Nice colors, composition, balance, dof. Good work.

Interesting use of color, would have like to have seen just a little more texture in the water.

This is one of the best! It may have been a bit better (in my opinion) if the top rock was dry and that little green worm thing wasn't on the backside. Still rocks tho! (pun intended)

I'm missing the emphasis on the river/stream
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice! I love the colors. An out of the box sort of shot for the challenge, but one that could easily and rightfully be wearing a ribbon next week. - 10
