Well done.
(Not bitter, honest)

It is a great shot

Most of the tributes to Ansel Adams didn't have that something extra beyond technical expertise. Your photo does. Well done. And congratulations on your ribbon.

I've seen a lot of "Ansel-Adams"es, so far, but this one stands out as one of the better ones. Good job.

Perfect capture. Te contrast is wonderful. Your DOF is perfect. The soft movement captured in the water is beautiful. I also LOVE the finer details n the trees mid-point through the frame. Best Adams tribute yet. 10

The clouds need better texture for Adams but very effective photo.

01/27/2006 06:47:28 AM
Maybe a little to much burning for my taste but a lovely image and title.

Oh yeah!!! THIS really does look lik an Ansel Adams shot! You had to be dead-on paying tribute to him because everyone knows his work. And you absolutely are. Fantastic job!

Well done composition and exposure wise. Did you intend the black band in the bottom of the shot? I find it distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 09:49:59 AM

Great use of wide angle here. Love dark and light highlights.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my favorite AA adams entries in this challenge. Good job on the perspective and repeating shapes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 05:22:33 PM
I really like the composition in this,beautiful repetition of shapes, and great tonal range.think you've managed to "convey your chosen photographer's style, subject matter and/ or techniques" extremely well.give yourself a pat on the back.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 04:12:33 PM
Wonderful capture. Makes my Ansel tribute look like hagwash. Darn ;-) . I do wish there was a little visible detail in the immediate shoreline, but thats a very minor complaint. Great work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 02:56:39 PM
One of the better landscapes in this challenge. I figured we'd see lots of Adams tributes and this one is excellent. The angle of the shot; the leading line of the "stepping stones," but mostly the vista view and deep contrast. Just exactly what he'd do. Great image 9

01/25/2006 04:29:20 AM
clever composition, very good detail, bottom and coastline too dark IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 02:50:50 AM
Lovely shot! The use of a wide angle helps this image sing out loud! I love the tones and the contrast of this image. Great shot.
