Beautiful, high contrast! Just what a paper needs to print. Composition seems to suffer from the vertical of the tree and its reflection bisecting the photo, however.

I like this shot, good for the challenge, and I suggest perhaps cropping out some more of the bottom of the picture (maybe an inch or so). The pic is a bit dark, as well, you might try boosting the contrast? But overall you met the challenge well. 7

this is the best one I've seen yet. Its something that would really appear in a newspaper, its has great exposure and composition. I love the reflections.

This reminds me of a joke...What do a flood and a redneck divorce have in common?
Either way, somebody loses a trailer.

nice shot, very watery and flowing, perhaps a little contrast would help.

the reflection in the water makes the picture very busy. But its almost impossible to avoid. Flooding has definitely been an issue lately, so great topic!

Sad but true and definitely a typical newspaper story. Nice B&W rendering. It would be even better with a human or animal presence somehow.

Hope you were in a boat when you took this one. Nice shot, the reflections are almost scenic while the drowned trailer if far from it.

Flooding continues where? How long has it been going on? Days, weeks, months? Let's remember you are trying to inform a wide public. As a journalistic effort this works okay but it lacks the human element required for a greater sense of immediacy. There is no real sense of the impact the flooding has had on the community. Without the human factor, in this peaceful setting, it has more of a formal landscape feel than a journalistic one.

Photographically, it's a compelling subject and decent composition but it lacks midrange tonal values. Some dodging of highlights in the middle to create greater contrast between the very dark trees and the water which is nearly as dark.The white structure appears quite grey.Then there is the matter of that large white reflective area behind the middle tree. That is a very distracting element that is not helping the composition.

Good. Maybe a more specific headline? Adding the town name might give it a bit more impact.

Very nice headline, I'd like to have seen more of the flooding without the trees in the way personally.
