A sunset moment at Sturgeon Bay Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada that we experienced in our recent camping trip. This sunset began very plainly without color or drama, and did not promise to be a good photo opportunity. Sometimes, nature can be very surpising!

A stunning view with a great perspective. I like how the point of the boat's hull leads your eye out onto the beautiful golden reflection. Outstanding shot!

Wonderfull warm colors. The inclusion of the canoe in the foreground really makes the picture. Goo luck. Jacko. 9

Stunning. This succeeds for me because it allows me to place my own story/ dreams into it. Love the content and the colours. Composition isn't spot on for me, though the content is strong enough that it's still wonderful but I'm curious as to whether you took any others of different compositions in same place?

This is wonderful.. and yes I think it fits the challenge. The colors and the reflections are perfect. I like how the subject is out of focus and the background is sharp. Best I've seen so far in this challenge.. 10

Great shot! Fit the challenge to a tee! It brings even more than calm to me being a canoe lover. :-) Technically perfect shot and the colors are fab!

This is a calm photo, and a great photo -- but I saw the challenge as to show "at rest". I can't see a canoe being "active" yesterday and "at rest" today. You may take it out and move it -- but in itself doesn't move and change states. Just my opinion. If there were a challenge for "calmness", you'd rank much, much higher.

Beautiful colours! Very peaceful. ~9

The water adds to the "rest" feeling in this image. Beautifully done. 10 from me.

I'm not sure, but this looks a tad oversharpened. Great scene and beautiful colour. I would have liked to see more sky (it lokks AWESOME) and maybe even a bit more lake. Nice job!

Very serene...I really like the golden hue....very crisp and sharp.
