I might end up kicking myself for putting this image in if it doesn't do well.

I actually like the morning light and the smootheness of the water...let's try and see

Beautiful, Enzo. I'd say you've got your groove/mojo/rhythm back!

Wow! My kind of photo. The colors and abstract shapes in the water: WONDERFUL!

Lovely color, and the foreground bokeh adds a nice natural frame. Shot thru some leaves at the edge of the water? Nicely seen and captured. Unique too! :) Good luck in the challenge.

excellent colors and smooth ripples in the water, there seems to be too much smoothing of the feathers in the bird's neck though i thin. you could leave more texture in the neck while still convaying a smooth feel

I would actually like this more without the bird. The water and plants have a great texture to them and great colors. The focus wasn't dead on with the bird and I think that's what is hurting the photo as a whole.

Lovely colours, pity the bird isn't quite in focus.

I think you created the image by using too much noise reduction. This made a falsely smooth image which doesn't really cut it for me.

Nice job just right on my $2000.00 monitor! a few degrees to the right on angle would have made this birds breast a little more exposed but I like it for the warm light and excellent focus. Evokes warm and smooth.
good job
