Great image; I think the border detracts though.

I feel like the the subject/title is a bit of a stretch for challenge. The photo itself is very intriguing, and I love the composition.

Very Nice!

too much border...

Beautiful landscape! The greens are very deeply saturated and nice. Not crazy about the border, but that's only personal taste.

Breath taking scenery.

A beautiful place to be free! I think getting closer to the boat, making it more prominent in the foreground would have made a more interesting image. And perhaps using a polarizer to remove the glare on the right side.

Such a strong sense of scale and such very rich colours. Excellent and unusual composition with only a sliver of land in the foreground and the heaviness of the slopes behind. Great focal point in the boat and boatmen too. 8

I think the heavy black frame accentuates the over saturated colors, unofrtuneatly in a negative way. I'm going to guess that you ger some "oversautrated" comments that you wouldn't have gotten without the frame. A picture submitted for these contests does not need the frame treatment that a photo on display would. There is already the frame of the computer screen and the grey DPC frame. Adding orders is a delicate thing and many voters mark down for distracting ones. Study some of the winners - most have a border that is thinner than this one. Yes, I like the image but it seems secondary to the frame.

Great colors and an exceptional scene. Your boat and orange clothing is much too centered for me. The border should be placed deep in the center of that lake.
