Aperture: 4.5

Shutter: 15 sec
Galleries: Sky, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: May 29, 2003

I took this picture, trying to blur the sea as much as possible so that it would not be seen as water but more as mist to try to bring out the feeling of the sky..
There has been no modification to colors here this is how it looks, one reason I like New Zealand
Post processing:
curves... to lighten it slightly
rotate (camera was sitting on an uneven surface)

hmmm- seems to be a moonscape. there's water in this pic, i thought the rules said 'no water?'

I either don't get the connection, or that's water. Or, I don't know what I'm looking at? In any case, no liquid connection for me. The colors are kind of nice, but still a bit muted, its pretty noisy, and the focus is very soft. 2

That's a body of water, I think (and therefore not liquid-but-not-water).

Very nice colors and tones captured here. The title implies, perhaps, that the sunset resembles liquid,and I suppose it does, but it doesn't seem strongly tied to the Liquid theme.

You've caught that beautiful evening blue sky after sunset! My favorite color. Was it a long exposure? the moon seems to have moved a bit. But the star and planet are sharp. Very pretty and peaceful image. To be literal - it isn;t liquid, but as a metaphore it works fine - the sun has "melted"

Wouldn't this constitute as water?

Nothing in the picture that makes me think liquid, a stretch of your imagination. I have done that too, but it didn't work for me either. Pretty but a bit noisy. 4

Great shot. Not sure how it meets the challenge.

DOesn't quite fit my idea of the challenge, but nice shot though.

That looks like water to me

It's a great picture, but the "liquid" in the photo is actually water, no?
06/04/2003 04:59:08 PM
Lovel shot - especially with the moon. Could have done with a little neatimage or something to get rid of the noise. The problem is the connection with the challenge. Unlucky,

Nice photograph. However, the liquid is supposed to not be water.
06/04/2003 05:31:13 AM
Challenge rules specified "not water".
06/04/2003 12:22:56 AM
