Thanks for all your comments; i appreciate the heads-up about borders and the border police.

Congratulations on your 19th placing. This was my favorite because the colors and the reflection are superb.

not sure I like the square crop on this. I see how you wanted to keep the foreground plants, but it throws the balance of the image off for me.

Nice picture, not to big on your border. Is that cottonwood floating in the water, I hate that stuff when I'm fishing.

Nicely composed and nice lighting. I like the square crop and actually like the border on the image as well. :)

well done. nice job. border a bit heavy, but still, it doesn't detract from the image.

I could see this with a ribbon with a little color adjustment. Nice.

I like the boarder it really birngs out the color of the wood on the building.

Double border is distracting, but otherwise, excellent shot. To nit pick, perhaps a polarizing filter could have shown a bluer sky in the background.

Very nice photo, makes me want to visit. I don't particularly like the frame though.

don't like the 2-tone frame, I think it would look better with plain black or white frame

Oh no, another great photo which will incur a visit from the border police - word of warning, I used to use borders on this site, but some people hate them with a passion and will mark down anything with a border. Best not to add one unless absolutely neccessary.
The photo is excellently composed, maybe needs something to zest up the lighting, but pleasing all the same.

This looks like just the perfect photograph. Well framed (would have done well in the Framing challenge), compositionally placed well, good colors and great textures. Good luck in the challenge!

Beautiful location. A different time of day would have possibly produced a better looking sky. 7

Great photo, but I'm not a big fan of the thick brown border.
