Lovely serene scene. I love the fact that you did not push the image over the edge with editing. Just the perfect amount has been give. 9

What a beautiful sunrise. Love the subtle colors of the frame and the minimalistic feeling given by the canoers. Love the fog on the water, the diffusion it adds to the reflection within the water is lovely.

Serene. What wildly uncomplimentary colours, brown and purple, mauve and blue. Yet it works, splendidly...again.

One of my 9's. I could live without the border though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2012 08:23:47 AM
Beautiful colors. I never add borders to my shots. This one reminds me that I should experiment with them. Well done.

Lovely and tranquil. I love the beautiful soft pastels and the perfect placement of the boat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2012 08:53:55 PM
lovely composition but sadly the frame squeezes boat down to insignificant element. 7.

Beautiful. The canoe adds extra life to this photo.

Like the subdued colors here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2012 09:14:13 AM
Beautyful scene. However, as I analyse your composition I realise that the kayak is getting a bit lost in the immediate presence of that three there. Perhaps waiting for it to get to the left portion of the frame where there is a clearer area and position it there in the photo would be a better choice.

This image just grabs you by the ears and pulls you upright to look and to look. Great shot

02/12/2012 12:14:42 PM
before I even looked at the title, the first word that popped into my head to describe this was serene. The colours are lovely
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2012 11:25:52 PM
I like the placement of the boat and the two people in it, smack bang in the middle of the 2 trees. Wonderful comp and you know it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2012 04:16:34 PM
impeccable work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2012 04:15:04 PM
Think I would prefer it without the tree on the left but it is a truly wonderful landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2012 10:08:04 AM
Excellent!! My fav so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2012 09:14:28 AM
In my opinion, excellent food photography works when you want to eat the food in the shot, and my point is that if you see a landscape shot and want to be there, it just works, and this shot definately makes me want to be out there, on that boat, so very nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2012 12:58:23 AM
Very zen. Would make a lovely poster somewhere where you wanted to impart a sense of peace and quiet. The colors are beautiful.
