Love the moody feel to this one. The little touch of the yellow flowers blooming adds to this image also. Love it!

There is something rather fictional and mysterious about this brilliant image. It even stimulates the other senses, as I can hear the sounds of the swamp, and feel the moisture in the air. Congrats on your front page finish. Well-deserved.

I don't personally care for the crop/framing and the way you did it. IMO, either include the entire trunk of the tree or nothing. But others may of course like it the way you did it. Otherwise great shot and interesting/mystic. Bumping up 8

Beautiful. I love how the two larger trees frame the scene. A treat to look at. (Louisiana?)

A closer crop would have really made this work. The trees on the side take away from the mystical feeling in the middle. Still a good photo.

A picturesque Louisianan (?) swamp. Nice use of framing with the cyprus. Just the touch of yellows make for a natural desaturated image. Front page entry I think. -9-

Stunning. I really like the BW conversion to create a mood. :) Perfect framing with the trees on the left and right.
