I myself am a real limnophobic, in fact, I just had a panic attack in my room thinking about lakes. I right now have my feet up on my chair for fear that the floor will turn into a lake. I was searching for some info on the subject when I stumbled upon this picture. It may not seem scary to any of you, but when I see it, I feel a paralyzing fear. I could hardly scroll down I was so afraid.

nice picture; the dark bottom corners adds a bit to the 'phobia' feel.

A beautiful photo, but the *fear* element does not come across. I wonder if this photo was taken with this challenge in mind, or if this phobia was picked to correspond to the nice photo.

Doesn't fit into challenge topic as no fear is shown or implied

this picture doesn't make me feel scared of anything. in fact, it actually looks like a pretty nice place. a defninition of limnophobia might help clarify the focus of the picture.

Nice hues. To me this image is peaceful but for a limnophobic person I can see how this would indeed terrify. I like the use of sillouetted imagery against the cool deep blues.

This is a magnificent picture. I have no idea what you're afraid of, but it's beautiful.

Great camera position, good eye flow from top right side into centre of photo. Wonderful shades of blue in water mtns and shky. Moon sparkles o n pine needles a bonus. "10"

What a really awesome shot. Nice view of the lake, nice color, nice focus. I do have to dock you a couple of points because it doesn't really show that much fear, even if I was scared of lakes. Really a terrific shot though. This might be worthy of a framing up. Nice going.

Wow! Great view! Love the coloring!

On behalf of all of us lazy voters: your presentation would have been more viewer-friendly if your title included a brief definition of the phobia in addition to the technical word for it.

A beautiful photo, absolutely stunning. I don't know what the phobia is your talking about so I have to look to this with the overall feeling of it. I don't think it matches, it doesn't give me the phobia vibe at all. Matter of fact it makes me feel quite serene. At any rate, gorgeous, and Im going to wait till the end to bump this one.

Beautiful picture. No fear perceived. Limnophobia not in my dictionary.
