Hey there from ME!

Looking back through this challenge, I was surprised to see that this shot was tossed so far down the list. I thought that this one was executed very nicely, while maintaining the the integrity of photography.

Camera Work/Technical: Nice job keeping all the elements of the image in focus. I really like the crisp tree silhouettes, as well as your chosen WB and post-processing that really pulled a nice sky color.

Lighting: Great use of available light, and/or post-processing, to build a unique silhouetted image. I also like the highlight on the camera lens, as it works well pulling the eye through the various elements of the image.

Composition/Content: I think your composition is the strong point of this image. I really like the centered composition paired with the abruptly angled framing that you developed. This also works very nicely to pull the viewer's eye through and around the image.

My Opinion: This was a well thought out, and even better executed image that fits this challenge perfectly. While 5.7 is a strong score, I really expected this one to finish near the top of the heap. The voters missed this one, but who am I to think i understand the voters? Very nice work, and, in my opinion, one of your personal bests.

I think you should have scored much higher for this brilliant image. I gave it a 10, and can't understand why anyone would have given it less than 7.

Thanks for sharing your method. I really want to try something like this myself.

In any other challenge, this one would have been a very top finisher. It's an awesome AWESOME photo. . just up against some "beyond belief" entries! Congratulations on such expert execution!

Very interesting "tunnel" or "well" effect. Hope you share how you did it.
Nice yellow/orange tones as well, and your silhouette, having the reflection on the lens. Bump.
