This is really a great example of ideal editing. This is the kind of photo I will refer back to when I'm trying to get just the right look.

Nice one Jeb! It looks like all things came together at the right time to produce a gorgeous setting for you to capture and you nailed it! Congrats on the top 10 finish.

Nicely done! I didn't really "organize" the earlier GTGs, though, but I'll pretend I did and take the credit anyway ;)

A great finish for a well deserving shot. The exposure just makes or breaks these kinds of shots and you have nailed this one. Whatever editing you did (if any) also brought out the natural highlights and colors - I imagine pretty much as the eye saw the scene. Very relaxing and serene.

Ohhhh...congrats on your Top 10 and new Star for your portfolio. I admit I am disappointed as I thought this one might land on the front page. This one should be printed and treasured forever! Well done!

Not a bad shot. I like that its all in focus and the lighting is nice. Some good color in the leaves. The water seems a bit chaotic for a zen shot. Good job.

I love this fast water photo. Like the others, I feel that, although absolutely gorgeous, it is not a serene scene. The implied speed of the rushing speed of the water is at the other end of the spectrum. However, with that said, I really love this shot. It is perhaps my favorite of the rushing water shots. I particularly like the way the water spray makes it appear as if the water just vanishes into nothingness. This would be a shot I would be proud to hang on my wall.
