Cool! I was searching for other people using a go pro and I find out that your image had been taken with that camera!

I've seen the time lapse too. Have you used a motorized slider? It's awesome how the Go Pro worked on the scene without flickering - have you edited the images a lot or the camera simply did a super job?

I gave your fabulous image a 9. I was hoping it would place higher. *sigh*

Thanks for all the kind comments and the votes. This was the first 'serious' photo I've taken in over 3 years so the invitation to enter and the kind offer from Langdon spurred me to go out with the camera again.

The image was taken just before dawn on a lake high in the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia. For those fellow paddlers the boat was built in my garage over the winter/spring of 2012/13 from western red cedar and this was only its second trip.

Whilst at this location I put the Gopro on a mechanical kitchen timer and took a timelapse pan. //www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6sA18AZKJg

This was taken over 18 minutes and is comprised of 550 individual images.

Enjoy

I love the dark background and surrounding landscape. The contrast with the canoe is really nice. Sweet canoe, too.

Hi, I've never heard of you, but good job, thought this was Bears image.

Love the composition. A little dark for me but still a fine image.

That canoe really pops!

Because I have no special knowledge of wooden canoes I'm sure I'm not giving this handsome craft its due. It's the fairy tale-like surrounds that appeals to me. The light on the moss-covered trees and rock, and on the stone structure, is what I really like.

POP! Wow factor very high for a relatively mundane subject. Congrats.

Beautifully handled editing to bring out the subtleties of the light.

Wow, that is beautiful.

What a charming locale. The pp'g however, makes the boat feel like it's not part of the scene

This is gorgeous, love the orange boat it glows!

Beautiful canoe - and I simply love what you've done with the dodge and burn here.

Absolutely wonderful. One of my top picks!

I love the illuminated boat. Very serene.

Is this an actual Chestnut Bob? It's an awesome canoe. We have an Adirondack Guide Boat, or rather a modern take on one made of Kevlar. Very cool canoe, very nice image.
