man i've tried to take this photo from pretty much this exact spot many times and have never been successful. It always comes out too 'busy' with all the branches hanging and otherwise. I think your editing really strengthened the composition and highlighted the most interesting elements of the frame, i will be making a mental note of this :)

congratulations on your top 4 finish. This is reminiscent of the old postcards from the 30's and 40's. Great composition, well done.

A most complete image and one with so many good vibrations. Worthy of a ribbon. Congratulations on your 4th finish.
