Stunning photo! I would have rated it higher than I did except I felt it was not bizarre, just serene and beautiful. Congratulations on your high finish.

Definitely amazing.
But 'The Amazing Tranquility' would better suit as a title than 'The Amazing Silence'

I just can't stop looking at this photo. It's one of those that makes you say "I wish I'd taken that shot!" Congratulations on your well deserved ribbon.

Well Done and seen!

Breath taking shot. The reflection is so clear. I like the angle you shot it from also. One of my top picks. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2004 08:17:21 PM
Very nice! A pair of mallards would really top this one off.

I can't talk about the Bizarre factor of this one, but this has to be one of the most beautiful nature shots on DPC. Absolutely breathtaking.

I love the dream like feel and beautiful reflection. Very cool.

Great reflection. I love the mist in the trees.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2004 04:26:48 PM
This one really doesn't quite fit the topic. It is very very beautiful but not very bizarre. Still I gave it a 7 because of its beauty.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2004 03:30:32 PM

Breathtakingly beautiful, but not necessarily bizarre.

Reminds me winter is nearly hear. Well done.

This is really amazing... the mist gives feeling its painted. Great job.

I love this - the peacefulness and stillness. Looks like a sketch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2004 08:49:02 PM
It doesn't say "bizarre" to me, but I really like the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2004 01:23:47 PM
wow, nice photo, not bizarre though

I don´t know if it´s "bizzare" enough to win this challenge but this is a great shot, as a matter of fact it´s awesome. I would give it a 10 normally but IMO it doesn´t meet the challenge 100% so I gave it a 9. It would look great up on a wall, I would be very proud to have taken it myself.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 09:25:06 PM
not really "bizarre"...but an AWESOME shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 08:57:46 PM
The sun appears almost blown out, not quite. Aside from that, it's a wonderful scene, well composed with a very strong mood and impact!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 08:21:33 PM
this picture is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 06:51:59 PM
Oh, this is just too beautiful! I so hope people don't get hung up on the word "bizarre" and mark this down. It is absolutely perfect!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 06:50:10 PM
Very pretty shot. Love the way I almost can't tell which one's the reflection. Maybe you could have cropped the sky tighter, but as is I think this is great,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 06:41:38 PM
Absolutely gorgeous! I wouldn't call it "bizarre", but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 02:38:18 PM
Very peaceful. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 02:14:19 PM
I like the setting! Sets a nice mood.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 12:17:03 PM
Great Image. looks cold. As a complete Amature I can't see anything wrong with this photo other than it doesn't 'completely' meet the challenge in my opinion. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 11:28:27 AM
Gorgeous shot! Not bizarre or freakish, but certainly makes me "wonder in amazement." Also the first shot in this contest that has prompted me to comment, and also going into my favorites. A 10 for you -- good luck!
