Boat loads of saturations and NI and dodging and buring and sharpenings.

I know it looks tilted, but I think it's just the angles playing with each other.

I'm wading in the big lake they call Gitche Gumee for this shot, the water is cold, the camera is 1 inch (2.54 cm for everyone else) above the water, my feet are getting cold, and I can't lean over long enough to check compositions. I soldiered on and wound up with this.

Thanks to pidge for talking me into entering this photo - she's a peach :)

Hey, we got the exact same score!! Why am I 21st and you're 22nd, shouldn't we both be 21st?

;) I was watching your posts in the Water thread and our scores were neck and neck for most of the voting period. I couldnt wait to find out which was yours ;) (I feel good that I placed so close to you.. means i'm doing something right)
This is a great shot, I love finding unique things out walking, or hiking around.. the perspective from which you shot it is awesome. It leaves enough to the imagination that people can form their own opinions about what is around or beyond to give it some mystery. The colours are so vibrant too!!

*what challenge are you entering in next? ;)*

A very nice image. the foreground blue water appear perhaps too light, but the snow, ice carries the charm. Bumping up.

Amazing colors, I am curious for the cause of the red reflection. Great unique subject.

8 - Nice clarity, textures and color(s). Difficult adjusting the perspective I imagine - looks like the 'bridge' is level, but the water seems 'off', but could just be the angle, etc. Maybe more finely tuned crop, especially on the right, not sure. Nice shot.

Water trinity! Nice colors, clarity. Wish ice bridge were not smack in the middle, slightly higher (if possible) or lower in frame might be better. Lovely.

The bright spot in the bottom left is a little distracting, fantastic shot otherwise.
