Though this one is a more minimalistic composition, it still retains the beautiful detail and clarity that all your shots posess. I love the symmetry and repetition. Absolutely striking image.

This is gorgeous! Has a very painterly quality to it. Should've scored higher, in my opinion. Maybe crop a bit more off the bottom?

One of the nicest in the challenge - a lovely winter sunrise with soft gentle tones and and those bleak trees all along the banks.

Ohhhhh. . .I think this is so beautiful. I'm a little disappointed that it seems the voters were so locked into a mindset of beaches and oceans, that they didn't quite give just scores to stunning work like this. This is one of the prettiest sunrise photos I've seen. Because it is unique, and the colors, tho obviously sunrise, aren't the same reds and oranges you typically see. Great work!

This is just beautiful, I love the colors and the scale of the tiny trees.

Even though this doesn't have the sun in it like many of the others. I love the tonality of this shot.

I love the composition of the trees along the bank, great depth. This feels so fresh and wintery, you did a good job of capturing the scene.

The title is cumbersome but the picture stands on its own. Nice and subtle touch on this one.

I could see this hanging in a Gallery as a Dutch painting. Very nice picture with soft colors.

Almost empty but not uninteresting. Attractive composition from a few small elements, and a nice serene mood.

This is just so perfect. Superb muted tones, mirror reflections, soft and hard subjects, wonderful textures in both sky and water, terrific sky lighting. Really, my fave of them all.

This is beautiful. It conveys a great deal of peace somehow.

Fab subtle blues here .. hard to tell it's sunrise, but a beautiful shot with great leading lines.

I love this shot!

The colours seem a little flat here, the pale blue sky reflecting on the grey / blue water means nothing really catches your attention. I think perhaps if it was possible to take this a little earlier in the morning with a longer exposure it would have been a much more interesting shot.
