i really like this photo but i find myself rolling the scroll on my mouse up.. i believe it could look a bit better with more room at the top

This is refreshing to look at. Looks almost unreal. The forest in the background is interesting, what filter did you add? Or did you? Nicely done.

Nice job of rendering the colors to give a big POP yet short of over saturation. Excellect!

Nice use of shutter speed, great colours too. 10

Is there something about photographing water in the woods that creates this extreme contrastiness in the surrounding rocks and trees? So many of these images seem to have this problem. I like the capture of the water but would like to see more midtone detail in the rocks and at in the tree in the foreground.

Beautiful shot of a beautiful place. I love the dreamy look of the water. Great job.

Can't find a thing wrong with this shot - it's absolutely gorgeous. Love the deep rich tones and the silky smooth water. Very nice.

The troll waited for the children to pass over its bridge..

Beautfully captured. Just enough speed to get a nice flow. 7
01/16/2006 03:32:32 PM
Gorgeous.. composition, colors, detais and just about everything is stunning... the only thin I'd like to change is to get more movement in the water, I find it too still, but that's not for us humans to change...

you get a 9 for this one.. my highest rated yet...

Very "Adirondacky". I actually grew up living on Adirondack Lane, imagine that! This shot gives me a very comfortable, serene feeling. Nicely composed & exposed for soft, flowing water.
