Thank you all so much for the comments, and of course the votes! I almost didn't enter this as I was most excited about my Open Challenge entry which was shot the same evening. Glad I didn't let it pass! I really feel that this image preserved what I experienced that night, and it's very rewarding to see that others could enjoy it with me.

Excellent picture. Way to make an otherwise ordinary scene look extraordinary. Love the blueish glow and the reflections on the rocks.

Always astounded seeing a few low scores in a beautiful image here on the home page - oh well - it's to be expected I guess.
This is simplicity in nature at it's finest. Well seen and well done!

Congrats on your first and Yellow Ribbon Mr.Hubbell!

There is a market for the blue monochromatic and many just flock to these studies. Yours is highly impressive and of first quality. Congratulations on your Yellow.

Excellent Capture. I like the color/tone
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice light study. Like the soft, serene mood. I like how the "line" between the above water stones and the underwater/disappearing ones sort of runs diagonally across the frame. Very pleasing.

A very nice, brooding shot, lovely how the moving water's been mistified...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 10:14:02 AM
Wow...this is different! I really like it, i love how it looks very blue and the title really gives to the image, bc it is where the water meets. The rocks are neat and differnt

I love the wetness of the rocks, it's like seeing a photo on extreme glossy paper except... It's on my computer screen! :-O

The mood of this photo really speaks to me. I love the darkness, the damp, the mist. In my opinion, a well composed shot.
