Big thanks to all the commenters and voters. This is my first blue ribbon, so I am thrilled.
I am unable to update the "photographer's comments" section. I guess that feature is for members only.

The requiem of nature
Plays out our solemn duty
To behold our ability in life
To retrieve the forgotten beauty...

If I were voting, I'd give this one a 10.

Wow, words can not even describe this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2007 10:58:02 AM
Wow...what an excellent shot. I'd be tempted to think that you played with the clouds in photoshop but I'm guessing it's just a result of a long exposure.

There are a lot if really excellent balancing elements in this picture. The contrast between the sharply focused rocks and the fuzzy clouds makes this shot particularly captivating as does the relative coolness of the water against the warm sunset. Great shot!

This picture has a very soothing color scheme to it, the water looks too cold to swim, but it seems like a nice place to relax.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2007 11:50:20 AM
Nice composition and lovely colors though lacking a little in sharpness especially on the clouds - is this due to the long exposure?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the satiny, silvery softness of the water's surface and the cotton-like clouds. It is a very serene photo and the colors are beautiful. Subtle and vibrant at the same time. This is my favorite photo in the challenge!
