I have never taken pictures in the blue lagoon itself before So I though about going there, So I sneaked in the back hoping nobody would see me, and climbed up some very high rocks, It was dangerous belive me! ;) When I came up I found out that there was a walking trail up there on the other side where people could walk up and take pictures :S
Well It was fun :D

I knew this was yours Heida! I thought it was another ribbon, and it certainly deserved one, but congrats anyway on a strong finish and an even stronger photo!

Excellent use of negative space. Beautifully done.

I love the use of negative space here. It adds great drama along with the light and how it strikes the water almost in a misty fashion. Fantastic work. I predict a ribbon the color of the water.

You mean you don't take candid pictures of barely-clothed people all the time? ;-) This is one of my favorite photos in this challenge. You did a great job with the composition and I really like the pale blue color of the water.

Great use of subtlety... I like the way the water appears more lit by the people - nice effect on the image's mood.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great use of negative space, its very simple yet beautiful. I would have placed them half an inch higher to the left because they seem to be too close to the corner.

Good luck...

Nice try, good idea, just pushed the minimalism a tad too far for me. I would have liked to see the people just a shade further into the frame.

05/14/2004 07:30:52 AM
Very nice and calming!! The two people positioned where they are is a great idea! Full marks!

nice use of negative space

Lots of stuff to like here, especially the hint of mist on the water. Good composition. A touch too blatantly romantic for me - highly marketable no doubt, and I would suggest highly successful here. kind of advertising industry aspirational, and I personally like a more complex, deeper image. But everso well done, whatever.

wonderful, wonderful composition. i love the use of negative space to isolate the couple and enhance the impression that they are alone together. very romantic feeling to this image. well done!

Awesome shot. So much to read into. Great use of negative space. The colors seems perfect. I just wish it didn't have a border.

One of my favourites... how beautiful. The smooth immensity of the water and the small people in the lower righthand corner... perfect. Great job!

Impressive! The positioning of the people in the corner is just perfect, and the water ripples and slight mists add just the right amount of texture to the negative space.

Very clever. Excellent composition. Trying hard to figure out why I should't give it a 10. Can't find any reason. 10
