Very reminiscent of Ansel Adams - great B/W tones and nice capture of a dramatic moment.

Can't wait to find out what Ansel Adams uses for a screen name. Welcome to DPC! 8

I can perhaps dream of capturing a photo like this! Focus and dof are just perfect. Superb composition. Probably the blue ribbon for this challenge. 10

Beautiful! I like composition and the higjlights on the water. Maybe the dynamic range seems no to be very wide, specially on the forest on the left??

I wonder how the colourful picture looks like.
Anyway, congratulations on your work.

Spectacular. Can't wait to see where this finishes, I predict at least a top 10.

A bit on the dark side for me. But I do love the level of detail you've managed to capture. Excellent composition. 7

There are not enough superlatives to describe how great this image is. Outside of being slightly dark on the left side of the image this is perfection. Outstanding, wonderful work. A very memorable image that transcends the challenge and moves into fine art photography. Kudos to you.

Great photo. Was this completely adjusted in photoshop, or was it shot with a filter? Almost looks infrared the way the sky is darkened and the white shrubbery.

Simply breathtaking...I am in awe. :o)

Stunning. Congrast.

As I see this, the trees on the left lack some definition, and I think that hurts the image - the excellent toning of those on the right is unbalanced by it. Good clouds, good reflections, and I like the foreground log-thing, although i might have wanted more definition there too. Ultimately, I think the composition isn't great - what you seem to have captured is the surroundings of an empty space: my eye is drawn constantly to the join of that right hand stand of trees and those on the far side of the lake, and there isn't that much there to hold interest, to focus the eye. The bright part of the clouds pulls the eye, and you end up wandering through the image, with no point to hold the attention. Strong efffort, nontheless. 7

Not normaly into B&W but this is great.

Really good submission for this challenge. It's near perfect. I really love the sky and the black and white - it has a very ansel adams feel. 10

Yup - that's deep alright. If not in the top 3 then this will be on the front page, deservedly. Great scene and lovely contrast - although the left side appears a little too burned and is heavy as a result.

Very moody & atmospheric shot with the tree branch ? in the foreground helping to tie in the deep dof perfectly.

I am not sure b/w is the best choice, a lovely picture nevertheless.
The horizon looks slightly tilted.

This is a beautiful scene that works very well in black and white and also meets the challenge theme well. It is one of my top choices.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Ahhhhhh... Lovely work, meets the challenge perfectly. Great tonal range, with details visible in both the blacks and whites. Good choice for a b/w shot - those clouds really give the image punch.

One of my favs so far. Meets the challenge 100%. Great reflections. Great contrast in lightings and composition.

Beautiful, I would love to see the colour version

Gorgeous, only comment is that a bit more foreground, but that's just me being nitpicky 9

This is just beautiful. B&W fits perfectly with it. Great composition too.

Good luck...
