A sentimental favorite, my first visit to the marsh I've made my own, and the picture that got me excited about digital photography.

Shot in JPG normal, with the Finepix 4900Z. Hue/sat in yellow, red and green channels. Minor cloning of a single distraction on the water's surface. Gothic glow added and faded in luminance mode.

Thanx for the kind words. Check my "yellow" and "refractions" when they finish to see I'm most assuredly NOT always near the top :-)

As for the low votes, I don't see enough of them on this shot to bother me. Some people just don't like hyper-processing, which this most asuredly is. The colors have been goosed and manipulated to suit my vision of what the scene looked like, and they are what I call "hyper-real"; ditto the aggressive sharpening. It's not to everyone's taste.

Gothic glow? If so, well applied, back to bump this up.

Seems a tad oversharpened. Nice color though.

You might have punched up the colors too much. I think more subtle colors would have been better. Nice sinuous curves.

You've gone with "painterly quality" here and to me it's so well done you've earned a 10.

Really pretty setting. Some might say this is oversharpened, but I rather like the effect.
