05/09/2006 06:25:45 PM
thats a breath taking
05/09/2006 05:53:08 PM
I love this image, but the sunny hill does ruin it a bit. Fun to see the sharp change of weather.

Nice. Looks like a painting.
05/09/2006 01:39:08 PM
One of the nicest images of the challenge.
05/08/2006 03:51:53 PM
Breathtaking :) My eye does tend to slide to the space on the right, tho... Would a bit cropped there keep me from wandering off?

My pick to ribbon. Eirie feeling gives this texture. Haze and reflection give it depth and the lighting is awesome. 10

Beautiful! How the hell could the mountain be so red while the lake is so foggy and cold blue? (My bet the sun and some cloud is in it, but it's you who could recognize it and make this beauty available for the others who didn't see it anno. Cgrt!

I want to see even more of this scene, the format just doesn't do it justice. Beautiful light, the mist, the colours...wonderful. 9 from me.

Gorgeous. Great haze and the radically different plant life on the three islands work really well.

beautiful shot, i think the desert mountain in the back takes too much focus away from the water though. still a great shot though

This is just a plain awesome photo! Like the little hint of the world outside the mist, and it doesn't take away form the photo. Super cool!
