Very conflicted about this entry. I love the image but am fretting that it isn't "high key" enough. The other image I have is more high key but doesn't grab me as much. Oh well...

Taken at the magnificent Post Ranch Inn (the color images are incredible), where I went with my sweetie for some well-earned R&R.

This was my favourite image in this challenge. High Key used very effectively... the image is well balanced and interesting, and most definitely deserved to get more love from the voters. So... that said... given it was under appreciated, I've given it the MUAIMHO.

I like how you captured how moving water bends light here. It makes me think of the motion and smell of the water.

This is my favorite shot of the challenge, and your title shows that I appreciate it on a similar level as you do.
