This was the result of about 90 shots - some were good, but I chose this as the best - I've been looking into the rule of thirds, and powerful lines and new ways of presenting images - I played with this one until it just worked for me. Very little pp was done

very nice photo! i feel the tilt makes this photo a bit more intristing to look at then if it was straight on. The lighting well placed and the slashed blue (bottom right corner) is well placed. i really like this photo and feel its in the top of this challenge if not a winner! good luck great job!

Great capture. Good color and tones. The tilt and positioning adds to the shot nicely.

Initial impression: From an artistic standpoint, this works on several levels. From a technical standpoint, it works on several levels. Unfortunately, the combination of the two fall well short of being perfect. However, on commenting, a different impression is conveyed which puts the original rating into question. This is very good - the angle enhances the image and while the water could use a little more active and detailed, the overall effect is positive. Originally rated an eight, it is rerated to a 9.

Terrific symmetry and contrast. Great tones. The tilt really works for this.
