One of my favs in the challenge, I love the green hue.
03/06/2007 11:45:32 PM
This is an excellent image. imho a little contrast boost could enhance the image even more.
03/06/2007 02:07:19 PM
This looks surreal I love it. My gut says 10, so i'm not even going to analyse this one.

This is a fantastic shot. I just wish it was a little brighter, (7)

something you dont see everyday. i love everything about this shot.
03/05/2007 11:40:30 AM
I love the blue/green color! The proportion! Nice job!

Beautiful image. It meets the challenge and it has a nice composition. Great Job!
03/03/2007 02:37:47 PM
Great. Looks like a painting

I really like this shot. I don't like that it has a teal hue to it, and the sharpness could be much better, but the picture is so interesting that those things don't matter. Well done.

wonderful image - love the colors and light and the ice is amazing - but i really think the title is strange, still it gets a 7 from me
03/02/2007 09:02:01 PM
PERFECT ......for this challenge 10
03/02/2007 10:25:33 AM
wow. that's really cool with the water. it could stand to be a little brighter, and there's a dust boogie on the right in the middle.

This really appeals to me. The very limited colour palette is effective, as is the simple composition; I even think the border works well. My only slight criticism is that it is a shame the twig to the left of the frame is cut off - another inch and it would have been damn near perfect. Bumping from 8 to 9.

Very well Done........( hey where is the 20 score button )
03/01/2007 04:33:25 PM
Really astounding - such a weird effect on the tree. Thanks for sharing this image with us!
03/01/2007 11:46:24 AM
There is a hell of a lot of potential in this lovely composition, but the tonalities are just too muddy. If you have photoshop, try opening it up and use image/adjustments/autolevel and watch what happens; that's a great starting point.

Catchy title!
02/28/2007 01:00:20 PM
Beautiful shot with the ocean in the background. Great contrast of subjects. Might try to convert to greyscale and play with the color to get even more contrast with the greenish-blue ocean.

For some reason I like the feel of this one. Would have appreciated some more contrast, but still a cool photo.

Great picture.. nice shot.. good work
02/28/2007 02:13:51 AM
Theres my winner - Great shot. Very striking. My only gripe would be the crop of the far left of the tree - Was there something else there that made you crop to the branch? Very nice though.
