Funny how deceptive a photograph can be. I'd swear this is mountains with a lake in the front and storm clouds blowing in! Awesome!

That made me chuckle. Nice shot! :)

I always love the opportunity to spend time with your images. This one is no different. I agree with Steve. There is something very alive in there. It looks more heavenly and angelic to me, especially shining through brighter than the back lighting itself. I see a steamy lake, a nice mountain range, and a beautiful sunrise...all from an abstract of a paper towel. It is always a nice surprise to see how much a creation like this actually speaks to your comment givers. While the overall vote is no surprise give the average voter's expectation of a crystal clear water droplet, light refraction through wine glasses, or the weathered face of a third-world citizen, I still take delight in the fact that there are still many votes of 6 or better. I didn't vote in the challenge, but this one would have been a top pick for me. As always, Mr. Giovanni, it is a pleasure each time I run across a request for a critique from you. Thanks for the opportunity.

Fooled me, I thought it was Iceland on acid. I wasn't one of your low voters... :)

Oh you are a smartie - wish I had thought of this! It does look like early earth - molten lava and all. Very creative.

A paper towel?! A plain old paper towel and some wrapping paper and a flashlight made this?!!! The landscape you created in my mind had wonderful light, rich color, and just a hint of Hell in the movement. I envisioned disoriented souls in a long line on the left, just out of camera range, marching invitably toward their eternal punishment. One of us has too much imagination ;-)

What? YOU CHEATED?? Why.... why... I feel so.. taken! I still like it, though.

Reminiscent of a Turner. Sorry I didn't get to vote on all the entries this time.

This is great, it should get one of those Posthumous awards (a blue I think...)

My impression was desert, sun, and water and camera movement. I love this pic.

Great shoehorn! I certainly thought it was a blurred landscape scene! Got an 8 from me and I wouldn't take it back even if I could.

Outstanding! I love it when I find myself giving yours high scores, a 9 in this case. And skewsme got a 10 from me. My values are torquing, no question about it.

Beautiful almost abstract landscape composition. Lovely tones of reds,browns,orange and yellows.10

Sorry about the brown comment, I do not see the landscape in the shot because of the out of focus processing.
It appears intentional so I made a wrong assumption. I did not mean to be disrespectful.

Of course, if DPC were a juried competition this would be a ribbon winner. Probably a blue. I need higher resolution to make out the features of the creature struggling to emerge from the primordial soup. I swear I see two arms (one with two fingers, one with a thumb) and maybe a head. The unexpected man-made object on the lower left adds to the debate over where, in the universe, this tortured planet was photographed. Brilliant work.

This is stunning. The colors and sense of movement & mystery make me want to be part of this!

Very interesting effect!

Well, I would not tag this as a landscape; more of an abstract. A very nice abstract. 8

This is very exciting! The hotness of the color, the transparency and perceived movement all make for a delightful package to behold...a standing ovation for you!

Oooh, this is different. Love the colors. The camera movement(?) makes this stand out. Pretty cool effect. Good luck on the voting.
