Thanks everyone for your comments! I've really got to fix my problems w/darkness on my monitors... :\

Those who were unsure of what the image actually was, it's a shot down into a still pool, on a small creek. The leaves you see there are reflections of leaves above the pool and out of the shot. All natural lighting, allowing you to see to the bottom of the rock covered pool in some areas. It really wasn't an image you can appreciate at the small size I submitted.

Here's a link to the image, full-res, it does look much better.

Also took this gorgeous shotthe same afternoon.

It's very dark and very difficult to make out the scene here. Also the image is a little small.

it looks a bit busy IMHO and the leaf on the upper right is a bit distracting for me. Nice cool place

This image looks too dark and clutterd to show any detail or a point of focus.

Sorry, this one leaves me wondering what exactly i'm looking at. Is it a water reflection, is it looking up into trees from the ground..... Not 100% sure.

appears too dark on my screen to tell what the subject is

I have a very hard time focusing on anything in this image. Looks like it could work well with a different crop!

Image seems to dark. Hard for me to tell what it is.

I think this is a reflection, but it's too dark.

A bit too dark and busy.

Lacking in subject, way too busy & dark as well. My only advice is that it may have made an interesting abstract if it were desturated. Sorry, but I can't justify voting it higher... << 3 >>

hard to identify without the title

bit like posthumous but better 8

It's difficult to tell what I'm looking at. I think this type of picture only works at very high resolution.
