The perspective is amazing, so as the colors. I'm just not sure about the PP. Good luck!

The juxtaposition between the light and the dark in this shot is stunning. I love the threatening sky and the golden grass.

Wow, almost looks like a desert with ice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 01:25:49 PM
There's something about the mountain that is a bit disturbing. It looks more out of focus than a part of a low DOF.

I'm hoping to leave comments on as many photo's in this challenge as possible... out of (currently) 1115 images, I gave 94 of them an 8. Your image was one of those 94, placing you well within the top 10% for this challenge.

Lots of water/mountains shots in this challenge, but I really like this one, the yellows, greens and blues are vibrant yet dark, and not a bit overpowering unlike in some of the other shots.

Good luck for a strong finish in this challenge.

Yep storm's brewing. Dramatic, dangerous feeling, without being brooding.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:15:40 PM
The way the shoreline leads us from the grass in the foreground to the hill is good

interesting white line in the water, works perfectly as a leading line, harp image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:12:21 PM
very pretty, your mountain is a little dark...but still quite striking
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:04:31 AM
What a cold/warm picture this is! All the golds and browns in the soil and vegetation, and then the cold blue/green of the water and ice! At first it struck me as overly edited, maybe, but I quite like it after looking at it for a while. The saturated colours suit it somehow. Good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:49:37 PM
I like how the clouds and the waves kinda mirror each other.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:07:00 PM
Nice shot. Good colors. Is that Ice?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:34:01 PM
Just beautiful. Love how light it is up front with the darkness of the clouds in the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:10:44 PM
Really great depth and colors, very interesting shapes and textures. I love the light on the foreground, and how the foam line leads the eye to the background.

I really like this scene, and the composition and processing work great. I would like it even better i it were shot at a wider angle though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:30:15 AM
not particularly fond of the amount of ground showing in the foreground, but that's just me. I like the sky, and the far mountain, and the color of the lake. looks very other worldly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:25:49 AM
Excellent detail. I love the processing on this without showing the bad effects of over processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:17:44 PM
I really like the deep, rich colors of this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:47:40 PM
beautiful image, i might have cropped a tad bit off the bottom though. nice leading line of foam going from the bottom of the photo to the mountain. lovely clouds too

I really like this - maybe add some sharpness is all.
