Beautiful clarity, looks like the light shone in just the right spot for this shot - love that fire line of reeds dividing the shot.

It's a simple shot, but I think that is what works so well here. The picture almost feels like a hand painted drawing. WOnderful variety of textures you used throughout the photo. I actually liked the textures in the top, but might have preferred them absent in the water. Not sure though. Good stuff.

Beautiful work! I especially like the color of the boat and the reflections in the water. Probably as stated by others, the very top of the picture distracts a bit.

Robert, you do the most wonderful things with landscapes. I envy your talent. This is absolutely beautiful and is going in my favorites.

Beautiful work, Robert! I was one of your 8's. I think HDR really works here. I love how the details remain in the snow.

This might even be cool as a horizontal shot, with the top of the picture ending at the top of the brown grass. Nice shot!

Love the PP, and would love to have seen the image with far less trees in it, they really distract me. The boat/water/shoreline part is wonderful, and I feel like I would have cropped the upper trees out.

Nice scene though I think it would be better in a horizontal orientation. Also, the processing seems a little over done (too cartoonish).

Nicely composed; I like the three horizontal bands that make up this image.

Pretty winter scene with lots of detail. Good composition and colors.

I like it! Split the frame then place the interest in ROT. The touch of light hitting the tree branches really adds to the photo as do the ripples in the water. Is this Skiff v.2007?
