Thanks Mal this was taken over the lake at Swansea just next to the scout hall. The little bit I've learned about PS I've gotten from here. I like to do all adjustments in layers so I can adjust, compare and undo.

My guess is behind the Swansea Caravan Park looking towards Wangi ?

Close. It was further south next the Scout Hall. About as far south as you can go in Swansea and still get to the lake.

great, titles suits perfectly, congrats

Absolutely amazing colors, and it doesn't look overcooked! Best landscape in this challenge by far, and up there in the top 5 overall.

Excellent work .One of my fav.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2006 08:15:22 AM
yup ... simplicity does it in this challenge. The monochrome makes the viewer see some semblance of reality here ... Going from a warm image to a cold image. Putting money on this one for top 5 ... no top 4 ... hmmm.
