Beautiful shot...well composed and the colors are fantastic. I love how the range is all in the blues. Textures on the rocks in the foregound give it a placement of strength while the rest of the shot gives it a nice soft feel...excellent contrast. Well done!

Wow. I love the combination of the smooth water the moving sky and the vibrant colour. This shot has a very dream-like effect. Definately a ribbon pick for me in this challenge and a personal fav. Good luck!

Why do I get a hunch this is Terjes image? If it is, not as good as your normal stuff but this is not really the season for this shots for us up north, still good though, love the simplicity of it and the coloring, so minimalistic. Threw a 7 on it, nice work.

I love the peaceful blue/white you've captured (or post processed?) as well as the contrasting shapes of rock and triangular building. Lovely composition and aperture settings.

Incredible photo. Such impact.
The subtle blues really have a calming effect. Th still water the drifting clouds, they all come together really, really well here.
Perfect exposure aswell i'd say.

There are those who would disagree ... but please level the horizon ... or else, make it so slanted I know it's on purpose.

Nicely done with soft colors!

Beautiful picture.. I will share one thing I learned in this challenge. Use your Neat Image first and you will get a much cleaner image after sharpening... It only needs a touch if done that way..
