Absolutely marvelous

I love all the patterns in the sky.
There is great contrast between all the blues and all the whites - the sky, the lake; the clouds, the snow.

Verrry nice capture. Nice calm colors. :)

I wish the s-curve was a stronger element in the composition, otherwise a excellent photo

Lovely infrared shot with mirror river and great clouds. Barely meets challenge, but still an 8.

Great image - maybe stretches the S-curve theme. Horison too central? I always struggle with this aspect when taking reflection shots

09/28/2007 11:53:47 PM
I'll have to take your word for it -- I can't really make out an S the way this is shot.

Love the sky and even though the S in the river is not too distinct I am really drawn into the photo. Meets the challenge and then some. Love the desat.

This has wonderful tones to it, although I'll admit I'm not a fan of IR as it looks too unnatural. I'm not really sure that the 'S' is evident enough to score highly on the challenge connection.

Terrific ir shot, great looking sky and very nice tone of blue. Wish this was mine :) 10

I like the image but I can't see the S shape.

stunningly dramatic infrared. I do wish it has more of the curve element, but whatever it's a ten from me.

this could easily be mistaken for a hard freeze
very cool

After looking at this one, the more I like it. the colors are fantastic and although I usually hate winter scenes, I'm not sure if that was what you were trying to achieve but you really make this appear to be one. It is really quite a stunning photograph.
