A Night Stroll through the Garden

I didn't vote and only browsed through the thumbs (even now i have only bothered to look at 2-3 pics :) and figured this fountain was yours. What's bothersome is the green stuff on the right (line, guy, and wall). Even though the fountain is beautiful, those vivid colors are very close to the edge of an otherwise fairly dark picture and pull the eye out of it. Without the greenish stuff on the right, this would be a good picture.

Having looked thus far, i would say this is one of the best shots in the challenge. Very beautiful and original. You really hurt yourself badly by submitting such a small size pic.

Thought i had seen that funny showerhead bulb before in one your lotus shots. This photograph is just beautifully controlled and probably quite a challenge to do. It's one of the best photographs i have ever seen on this site. This to me is photography: pure, simple, beautiful; no monkeying around with gimmicks.

Congrats on finding a lotus! What exactly is the difference between lilly and lotus? All i can say is that this is a beautiful work of art. And i say that after looking at this pic for a long time.

Very, very good. Even though this is a beautiful picture, it is the, almost impossible looking, reflections that make it special. Beautiful colors and composition and the ripples in the back make for a nice touch. Great work.

This close-up is beautiful and gives a good view of the P's head and detail of the feathers. Somewhat unfortunate that the detail in the dark feathers is somewhat lost. That's nitpicking but when you do a close-up such as here that's what a viewer might expect. Like the abstraction of the background dof. Fine composition and, as usual, Velvia-good colors.

Very nice image. Nature is very, very difficult to shoot well. Any chance to get a bit more detail out of the foreground left rock?

After reading your 'selling points' for shooting in raw, i visited your profile page and saw these pic. These are the type of pic i love to shoot as well. Don't know whether you shot this in RAW but presume it would be an ideal candidate for RAW. (water, highlights on stone and very light sky, although not yet 255 value sky yet). I have ruined many good shots of darkish scenes (lots of trees and so on) because there was some light sky peeking through that came out as 255 value. Hmmm, i believe we discussed this on a thread some time ago abt graduated nd filters, which i haven't purchased yet. What RAW help overcoming such problems or would a grad. nd filter still be called for? Anyway, i never have a better idea for what scenes it would be definitely worthwhile to shoot in RAW. For other type of shoots i may stay in superfine in order to save a lot of processing time. Does this sound about right?

Secondly, would a grad ND filter actually help with this particular shot since the light sky covers only a small corner of the image???
Replying to my questions here on your pic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Anyway, nice shot. You might try to darken upper, uppermost greens with hue/sat. Alternatively, you might consider cropping off just about the top of the rocks. It would make for a stronger, more serene image.

Very dramatic image. Considering the 'eye-level' (midway in the momument) here, this tombstone, and you, must have been standing on the edge of a very steep ravine in order to get the clouds way below eye level.
