This is just great. Wonderful feeling of space and stillness and I love the subdued colours too.

EXCELLENT!!! Congrats on 4th
Apologies for not finishing my comments earlier.
WOW, this image really shows great use of neg space. Great composition and overall technically great. I love the grey and the way that the sky blends into the horizon. You really feel as if they are in the middle of nowhere. Great work.

This photo gives me such a quiet peaceful feeling. I believe it qualifies for this challenge, and wouldn't change a thing about it.

this is one of those times when i wonder why there isnt a zero rating.
09/21/2002 06:06:00 PM
Niiiiiiice. I really like this one. I wish the boat were just a bit sharper, but this gets an 8, regardless.

I like the way all the different backgrounds - water, clouds, misty mountain - are all shades of grey and can be looked upon as one whole. It's great how you have detail in each of these so it's clear what the location is, and yet they are so harmonious. The size and position of the colourful boat within this grey really gives a feeling of isolation to it. I think this is a strong example of visual negative space which isn't a completely solid colour background.

nicely done, I like how the water blends with the background. The boat, then, is especially emphasized because it has color. karmat

I love both this and foggy morning I think they are both superb photos. On this photo the colours of the boat give a contrast to the grey andrewm

Wonderful photograph! Really pleasing negative space - interesting variation in the shades of grey. I love the sail boat having some color. This conveys atmosphere and mood very well.

My only 10 this week! This picture is breathtaking...the matching mist and water makes the boat seem like a fairytale mission. I love it! Congrats.

Very, very nice! I'm guessing you desaturated some colors to bring the boat out? Well done!
09/17/2002 05:35:00 PM
Great shot! Nicely cropped.

I really like this. It is a picture that makes me keep looking. And then look some more. The color on the boat against the grey tones draws me into the picture. The reflection on the water is very nice, also.

excellent shot - the grey sets off the color - the angle has you wanting to go away with them - just a nice shot and fits the category well. i hope this does well, 9 sgtpepper6344

Very nice. If my understanding of negative space is correct, you did a great job. I like the contrast in this. Focus and lighting are good. 8
