I had a color version of this image and was debating to myself on which one to submit. Shailesh 21.gif DigiFotoBuddy helped me in choosing this B&W version. He is right!

Thanks to Shailesh and all commenters for your kind words.

Thanks to Umesh Bihani31.gif bihaniun and Madhu More (non-DPC friend from the local photo club) for taking me to this spot.

This is truly an awesome shot, I love the B&W conversion. The sharpness is also admirable. The only thing I don't like in this photo is the tilt itself: in my opinion, it adds tension and dynamism, but the scene is very calm and peaceful, so it is a bit contradictory. May be just me though. However, congratulations on your well deserved ribbon!

Oh MY!! Drop dead gorgeous and my favorite by a mile. WOW - perfect tones and those eery branches poking up out of the water really add to a mood of mystery and intrigue. This is stunning.
