This is really amazing. Its so clean, it almost looks like a fairy tale scene. Congratulations on 6th place.

Thanks everyone!

Regarding this particular shot, there is not a lot of post processing involved. You can see the original here:

' . substr('//farm3.static.flickr.com/2633/3828913531_d4db13a7fa.jpg', strrpos('//farm3.static.flickr.com/2633/3828913531_d4db13a7fa.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Mostly some cloning. Ducks and other birds were in the way and some buildings on the horizon.

like painting

You did this with a camera?! Wow!
09/05/2009 07:51:33 PM
Lovely. Looks like a Ted Harrison painting.

Wonderful. One of my favorites of the FS. ETA - I would like to see this big, in full deatil. Great contrast, but with subtle shading and smooth lines and textures. Sweet, indeed. Bumped to the top.

Wow! Not much i can say about this. It's taken my breath away! Stunning! One of the most beautiful photographs i've seen on DPC. My choice for the Blue. 10!

Looks like a painting, this is fantastic. 9
09/04/2009 10:25:08 PM
Man. If you had used the full 720 I'd give it a 10, but it's still sweet enough for a 9! Good luck.

Lovely and quite unusual scene. I like the light and the processing technique. One to frame and hang.
09/02/2009 02:37:57 PM
nice - has a toy town vibe

Almost like a contemporary painting. :~)
