I don't know if this is my best but it is one of my favorites. I love the colors and the way the steams of the "hells" comes off the red colored mud.

Wonderful looking place - I love Japanese landscape, gardens and bonsai. Is this a natural place or gardens? Beautiful regardless.

This strongly reminds me of a Japaneese painting. Amazing colors, and a nice tree balancing things out. II'd consider doing a bit of a patch job in the lower left corner and possibly clone out the stick nexto/under the tree. I think those changes would make the image that much stronger. 9

I'm not sure what I'm looking at here... is this some kind of a volcano or hot springs or something? Love the color that it makes and steam is awesome! I think I would have cropped off more of the left side of the photo... but otherwise cool photo! - T

Oh WOW! This is really beautiful and unique! Outdoor Photography Magazine has contests each month where people submit their best photos for publication and prizes. You definitely should send this one in -- it would compete with anything I've seen in that magazine! Good luck. 10+
