Robert: you have simply outdone yourself here. You have managed the expert conversion to a lovely ethereal study. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

This is so beautiful. . .processed so expertly. I have a feeling if I tried this, it would get dismissed to a trash heap for tragic processing skills. Congratulations on a well-deserved front page placement!!!

Well Robert, I gave you a "10" for this outstanding image here, as I just "LOVE" it.
You are definately a true "Master of Seascapes".....

Congrats Bear on a Top Ten, and for improving on an image that was already pretty darn good to start with, WTG.

Hmmm I wonder who's this is? Great landscape as always Robert ;) This is just phenomenal. A little Hyper-processed™ perhaps? I have never seen an image of yours processed like this one. Great job! Bumping up ;)

Beautiful colors!

Striking orange, (and my home monitor is even a little cool). This skiff should serve you well sir.

Well, Bear, I like the original shot better. I think it was the way the boat took up more of the composition than in this one. The colors are very vibrant and beautiful on this one, but it seems to have lost some of the magic the original had. I did not feel your original was overprocessed, though many of the comments indicated that. Still, both are nice shots but I really like the original much better.

Beautiful light and color. Really perfect image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/12/2006 01:14:34 PM
Finally getting around to comment. I figured this was yours - that boat thing you got going. Overall this is a pretty cool pic, but I personally think the colors are a tad bit oversaturated. Although I wouldnt dount that the colors are pretty close to what you saw. Good job - hope it scores well for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2006 06:11:43 AM
Lovely colours here it must have been beautifull. I feel that the saturation has been pushed just a tad too much, but it still is a vibrant image.
Thank you.

The greens look wrong to me, and too over-saturated in general in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2006 01:31:19 PM
What planet is that on? surreal orange, great image

Since the title wasn't exactly the same, I had some trouble finding the original. Fortunately I had a hunch about who the photographer was (right bearmusic?) and checking on his posrtfolio I found what I was looking for :-). I really liked the original, but this second take is even better in my opinion, I love the mood of it ... Good job!!

Great shot and beautiful colors!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2006 03:10:49 AM
I'm giving this a 5.
...no, wait... a 10. Yep a 10. But when the challenge is over and the bag comes off, I wanna know why people anchor their little boats out there and abandon tham? Does someone pick them up or do they have to swim to shore?

Or am I way off base and there is someone asleep in that dingy?

Outstanding...love those orange hues.

"WOW" factor here and I absolutely "LOVE" it.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2006 04:32:22 AM
A bit too orange. Or the greens need to be a little less vibrant.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2006 08:54:48 PM
Super landscape! Love the saturation of the golden colors!

06/06/2006 02:26:17 PM
Wow, did you do a lot of color adjusting in ps? If so I think it works well, nice placement of boat. So 10

impactful oranges...serene scene...haven't seen the original, but this looks fantastic and I hope you do well with this, good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2006 06:11:23 AM
This must be in 'Orange' County, Florida [:-)]. Very beautiful. The colour is so dominating IMO that it eliminates the serentity of the scene. A very interesting contrast in affect. Well done.

Great colors, Robert! I love the distant haze and foreground reflections. Great composition as well. Top ten for sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2006 12:39:07 AM
Greens seem a little bright (could be my monitor...?), besides that beautiful colors & composition. Nice shot :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2006 12:20:40 AM
Just a bit too much orange here... Like the image, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2006 12:11:59 AM
I knew it has to be yours - yet another Bear_Music production photo. A quick search revealed this to be from your leading lines challenge :) once again, the gradients control is remarkable, Robt. I also like the hazy distance. good work.
