The colors are sumptuous and seductive... one just wishes one were there to soak it into one's soul. But, seeing it is almost as good. :)

Thanks everyone!

This is a nice suprise! I thought for sure it wouldn't ribbon, there were so many good shots in this challenge.

Well, thanks go out to all who made this possible - my grandparents for having the forsight to move to an extremely photogenic location, mother nature for coming up with a most incredible sunset, my parents for giving me a wide angle converter for Christmas, and, of course, the voters! Yay! Go Voters!

It's easy to see why you feel this is your best December shot. It is a splendid shot of a perfect time of day.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 11:06:40 PM
Beautiful colors, and I like the slight wide angle perspective the lens gives the sky. Only little nit would be a bit more detail in the foreground; there's basically (on my monitor) all black in the lower left corner and that detracts slightly IMHO. Still a good chance for a ribbon here! Good luck.

Remarkably three dimensional.

01/12/2004 11:22:15 PM
I think you did a very nice job of composition and lighting is perfect.

Beautiful composition and color. It draws you right into the photograph. I love it.
Good photo!

Gorgeous silhouette and beautiful sunset. I wish I'd been there!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2004 01:08:05 AM
Awesome contrasts. I guess I would have liked to see a littel more exposure on the foreground, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you were liked the negative space. 9.

i like the extreme wide angle effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2004 05:55:24 PM
Ok, 1st of all, you seem to live somewhere warm.. minus 5 right off the bat!!! ;-) LOL

This is one of my tops. I give you 9! Wherever I look my eye converges back to the shelter. The levels are spot on and so is the saturation. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2004 05:50:55 PM
Very nice use of a wide angle and great colors. For me it works better if you crop off the bottom.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2004 01:06:30 PM
Very nice.
01/10/2004 10:42:36 AM
wow!!!!!!!!

very nice
01/09/2004 10:08:54 AM
Lovely color, great wide angle, emphasised by the very nice smooth effect of the long exposure. A bit too many disturbances in the foreground, but not really killing. Great.

Stunning, magnificent work! Tone, colors, clarity are all superb. Had you tried moving the camera just a little to the left to weight the structure more toward the right and more off center? 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2004 04:24:25 PM
very dramatic and beautiful. Nicely done with the reflections and the sillouhette. I think it might have been nice to crop off some of the right hand side, but thats just my opinion. Nice Dramatic sky!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2004 12:46:28 PM
This could be a postcard. One thing you should do is to spot-edit the moon from this image. This light spot up there is bad for this image. -9 from me (10 if this moon would not be there)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2004 02:50:12 PM
Dramatic sky, a bit dark in the foreground (could be cropped out). I like the siloette against the background. 9

Beautiful sunset/sunrise scene. The composition is very interesting. I like how the dock leads your eyes toward the sun. The clouds seem to bring your eyes to the sun. Also is that the moon or a star near the top left. Very inspirational shot.

01/03/2004 02:54:15 PM
Good level.
01/02/2004 10:58:21 PM
Very Nice. I love the colors and the reflection on the water.

Groovy feel to this photo. Looks like a long exposure ... I love the soft feel of the water.

Like how smooth this one is, it kind of makes one feel good to look at it. .:9:.

Nice DOF. I like the feeling expressed by your picture.

that white spot in the sky is a bit distracting.. otherwise, great composition and exposure control.

Who can compete with this! Perfect!

WOW! I love this shot. You have great detail in the foreground and I love the big sky. the reflection is perfect. One little white spot in the sky that is a bit bothersome to me. I think I would clone it out. (wondering if its the moon).
