this was one of my top pics for the challenge (9) I would just love to slide off that and break the silence.
beautifull tones and very calming.
well done

Simple and nice

Love the coloring and reflection.

Very interesting, indeed! The fog completely obscures the horizon so you can't tell where the water ends. And the silhouetted dock also obscures where its reflection begins. Makes for a facinating picture.

like the symmetry. I almost would like to see how this would look with a different crop to really emphasize the symmetry.

I like this photo. Its simple with good contrast and excellent sharpness.

I like this. It's calming. Nothing more to add I'm afraid.

As it is now I think the water could use more ripples. I was thinking maybe if you had thrown a big rock out there and waited a few seconds?

If the minimalist look was more what you were going for cropping the reflection out and showing more sky would add to it.

I just noticed something. The bottom side of the slide has a great rustic texture. It would be cool to see that brought out more.

This is a beautiful photo. I can hear the silence and feel the cool air. It makes me think of the "end of summer" when the water is too cold to swim in and the kids have all gone back to school. This photo also represents a great 'eye' for an image. The lines and shapes here are strong and the time of day along with the conditions nicely isolated the subject and created a really nice mood for the photo... great work :)

I love this one. It's so still and untouched looking, but the slide shows a past and previous (loud, breaking the stillness) childsplay, which really contrasts with the stillness.

Nice mirror image! :)

I think I want to see a little more of the slide, maybe pulling the composition over to the right. Beautiful light and reflection though

I have looked at this a few times now. This time I see what bothers me. On this screen the pic only shows partially and it is cut off just above the reflection in the water. Without scrolling to see the rest, this portion seems, to me anyway, to have more impact and causes the viewer to create the rest. Much more powerful in my humble opinion. The composition as is is good, but again I think I like a different crop. Well done on the exposure - just the right mood/effect. The ratio of light to dark is very well done. Overall, very nice exposure.

Great colors. I feel like I can almost see some fog coming up off of the water.

6: I like this but I don't know what it is! A bit more space at the right would be better
