Shot late at a windy evening with rain showers coming and going. Wind was off the shore so waves were just small. Colors became dull and I liked it better in B&W

Wow! Wow! It's perfection! I am in love with its dreamy ethereal look... so expansive. My first perfect 10!

Half-open eyes, am I still dreaming? It's that moment of doubt that's so appealing here. The mid-line at 120 adds to the unreality, as do the protruding rocks in the lake echoing the mountains. And then there's the pseudo-dynamism of the rocks as a pod of dolphins, with an attendant whale and other beasts. Beautiful subtle range of tones and detail, befitting a superior black and white. "The Lake" Here's proof that a simple, straight-forward title often affords greater resonance than one more prolonged.
Personal favorite of the challenge.

I do like this! Brooding and dark. The composition suits the aspect ratio well. Bumping to 8.
