Beautiful light, congrats on your 5th place! Curious that it is both in-camera and processing effect - wonder what it looked like without the watercolor filter, that is, what effect did you get with just the gel-covered glass alone?

Great subject and excellent PP. I'm going to have to get PP lessons from you. I love the mood of this shot. It makes me want to be there.

Oh, I almost forgot, congratulations on you 5th place!!!

Hey, adding a HM to your ribbon! Not bad! I love the picture, although I'm not a fan of the challenge in general.

Woo Hoo! Not quite a ribbon, but top 5 is great! Congratulations Catherine!

Perfect subject for the challenge, and I like how you've blurred the vegetation to show off the colors, forms and light. 9

Perfect subject for an impressionistic image, very well executed.

I was not really sure about the filter applied to this one but I think the highlights are what grabbed me. It is luminescent and playful.

Very nice. This is my favorite. 10

Classic subject. Good thinking, I forgot about glow. I like the white glow, but one thing that might be fun would be to use a gold glow on this. If you have PS just change the top paint color to gold before you do a diffuse glow. Best of luck.

Wonderfully "Monetish".

Of course, a very iconic bridge form there and the overall efect of colours and light intermingling brings to mind a famous painting or two. But I don't very much like the s/w filter applied. I think it detracts from a good photo. However, I will vote this image a 7.

A delight of color, light and form!

Very nice, I know the filters will probably get you hammered on score but I think you hit the feel and look of impressionism. Great job 9

I'm glad you came to your senses and entered this. :P It's beautiful, with wonderful contrasts and lighting. The composition is spot on, too. And, of course, you got that very nice painterly look. Just wish I could vote on it!

Really reminiscent of Monet's Giverny.
