I like the rich colors and simpleness of the subject. I find that the floating object on the right mars the otherwise silky(?) water surface.
03/30/2004 10:43:22 AM
Exceptional detail and colors. I also like the slight waves in the water. The only distraction is the floating thing to the right of the pillar. Still an excellent photo.

nice contrast with the water and good job capturing the detail in the rusted pipe.
03/30/2004 07:09:11 AM
Wow the colours are amazing. One of the best. 9

nice one - good luck
03/29/2004 05:36:16 PM
what a great find; love the rust colors against the blue water. beautiful shot.
03/29/2004 12:34:24 PM
Great colour and texture, overall a very good entry
03/28/2004 06:09:48 PM
A favourite for a ribbon. Beautiful lighting and detail with the orange screaming for attention. Well done

I have looked at this picture many times, and it has quietly grown on me. The turquoise of the sea contrasts well with the post, in all its shades of rust.

I've now looked at every entree in this challenge, and I like this shot by far the most! good luck, you have my vote!
03/27/2004 07:33:29 AM
Very nice natural lighting. Well seen and well executed. -9

Nice color and contrast.
03/26/2004 10:06:08 AM
oh, this is really nice - i considered something rusty for my own entry, too, but this is much better than i would've done... i love the contrast of textures and colors here a lot... great shades of orange itself, too, works very well for the challenge... 8.
03/26/2004 09:19:31 AM
Nice contrasting colors, the reflection makes the shot. Nice...
03/26/2004 05:52:49 AM
this is a nice shot as far as the quality is concerned; but it's not a balanced shot in terms of it's weight...it's skewed; i feel that it's gonna fall to the left....
03/26/2004 03:52:11 AM
Beautiful! Nice composition.
03/26/2004 03:51:30 AM
I think that I change the perspective on this shot to vertcle. Give a little more reflection, and a little more pole.
03/26/2004 02:34:53 AM
Very nice colors.
03/26/2004 01:50:36 AM
I love the contrast of textures here (water and the rusted pole). Excellent DOF. Focus and composition well executed! Well done :D
03/25/2004 09:02:59 PM
Good job bringing out the colors.
03/25/2004 04:22:32 PM
Very beautiful! I love how the color is ranging from yellow to red. The water's color contrasts beautifuly with the rust. I also like the reflection. It looks like its a bit tilted to the right, but that doesn't matter. I give it a 10

Good luck...
03/25/2004 04:17:07 PM
well spotted and well taken.
03/25/2004 11:29:18 AM
You caught this shot at just the right time of day. The colors are stunning. Did you add some light of your own to bring out the fire at the bottom of the post? Even the ever-so-slight tilt of the post works for me.
03/25/2004 09:11:52 AM
I love this shot. Beautiful colour saturation makes the different shades of orange pop out. Simple composition is also great.
03/25/2004 08:35:12 AM
Love the vibrant colours of the rust & the glass like water. Well Done :)
03/25/2004 03:38:03 AM
On of my favs for this challenge, great colors and beuty. Real work of art.:10:.
03/25/2004 03:02:28 AM
Very nicly shot, and I like the water.
03/24/2004 09:10:00 PM
Wow...that one just stood out as soon as I looked at it. What a great shot ...fantastic colors, nice reflection, and a really wonderful blend into the water.
03/24/2004 07:21:40 PM
The water looks very soothing and relaxing. You captured it well. The twig floating along to the right of the pole is unfortunate, but I applaud you for keeping in the spirit of the rules and not cloning it out.
03/24/2004 04:03:49 PM
so good i could eat it
03/24/2004 03:07:12 PM
Beautiful shot. The dreamy colors really "pop" and are enhanced by the strong texture against the soft water. This could easily be a ribbon winner.
03/24/2004 01:36:58 PM
Excellent photograph! Nice colors and detail. 10.
03/24/2004 12:58:47 PM
Cool, nice find
03/24/2004 12:28:46 PM
very nice! the tones are smooth where they should be smooth, sharp where they should be sharp, great color. I like that it's not totally vertical, maybe it needs a little more angle for drama.
03/24/2004 12:21:54 PM
Beautiful colors, light.
03/24/2004 12:12:57 PM
This image has that jjbeguin look to it and that is meant as high praise. He is one of the best of the best. Color, lighting and texture are very good.
03/24/2004 08:32:32 AM
I love the colours in this but I can't imagine why you didn't rotate this to vertical!
03/24/2004 05:27:27 AM
Very nice colors. Loved the subject. Fits challenge very well.
