This is so incredibly beautiful! It takes my breath away! I don't know how I've missed finding this -- either in the challenge -- or in all my poking around in the profiles -- but I'm glad I noticed it now! It's going straight to my favorites folder!

Simply beautiful.

It is a gorgeous photo, but I'm curious to know what element of this picture was surreal for you?

Great Contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It seems you did this without dodging and burning. Good job. I think this would have been much more surreal if the horizon had been cropped off and the image flipped - making it look as if the stones were huge and hanging in the clouded sky.
Anyway, there's some element in here missing for it to fit the challenge very well. Otherwise it is a great picture and would score high in, say, a b&w contest. 7.

It's a beautiful shot -- truly stunning -- but I don't get what makes it surreal, honestly.

I'd love to know where and how this picture was taken, it's excellent
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A very surreal effect which carries the imagination. More like a static but beauriful rendition. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2005 11:00:25 AM
Gorgeous!!! I love the dreamy surreal feel of it, and the full tonal range it uses.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2005 06:49:44 PM
Beautiful picture and composition. I could've used a little more sharpness to give more detail and texture to the rocks. unfortunatly, really not surrealism. 6

Very nice image, unfortunately not surreal for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2005 01:24:08 PM
very nice shot. good use of basic editing to get a very dreamy look. well balanced as well. I might like to see it with half of the forground rocks on the bottom cropped out to help center the focus more and draw the eye more to the midground. But it's great how it is. 9

Like something out of "Lord of the Rings." Very nice shot, I'm impressed

I would have given this a high score in the Ansel Adams challenge also.

Really beautiful landscape, but I don't think it's surreal. 7

Seeing this image, you get the sense that you've just entered in one of a Jules Vernes adventures, somewhere lost in a mysty island. Very good job.

looks like a picture of an other planet. I like it very much

  Photographer found comment helpful.

I have seen this effect with water flowing, but not fog. A 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2005 07:11:44 AM
Pretty, moody, dreamlike. Yet it doesn't quite manage to pose the stark contradictions or reality-bending imagery of surrealistic painting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2005 04:37:06 AM
Now this photograph is surreal, in my opinion. Stunning contrast in b&w. Sharply focused rocks, with smooth flowing water. Perfect composition. Could be preceived as mountain tips with clouds floating around them.... I give this a 10! Very well done, fits the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2005 01:04:22 AM
Ansel outtake? Beautiful and fantastic either way. 10.
