    Congratulations on 2nd place. This is a wonderful shot. It was my #1.

Nov 28, 2017
    Great shot, congrats!!

I'm trying to find the 2 things that bothered you, but I can't.

Nov 28, 2017
    Really loved this shot with the wonderful reflecting clouds. Congratulations.

Nov 27, 2017
    wow. thanks for the comments and voting. was surprised no one mentioned the two things that bothered me after i posted the entry. i'm certainly not going to bring it up now.
it was a fun day with cameras on the water. and if you ever get down here with free time, get in touch with me and we'll paddle out there.
thanks again.

    Yes, very quiet, very serene and nice reflections of the clouds. B+W was a good choice.

    great result with the reflections

Nov 27, 2017
    My favorite image in the open section by far ...

    Not that it matters but I think I've seen this young lady with a more powerful contrivance. Love the effect of the clouds on the water. Would love to see the shot in colour. In my tt.

    BW works great here. Nice example of rule breaking: blow those highlights and it works even better

    A lady enjoying the peace. Well composed. In my favorites.

    I love this! It's beautiful and it has impact - even though it depicts calm and peacefulness. My reaction to it was wow! Super entry.

Nov 25, 2017
    This is quite stunning. Amazing reflection, very effective in B&W. Great job bringing out the rower among everything that is going on. You could try cropping out most of the sky for a panorama shot.

    Certainly a tranquil situation, though the rather busy cloud patterns detract from the sense of serenity.

    thanks for your comments and input. i did get some more 'balanced' shots that day but liked this one more for the backlighting on the paddler against the dark portion of the background. maybe i can find another for the out takes.

    I like the concept of the image. The brightness of the sky is problematic. I might have tried to reduce the brightness and amount of sky in the image. The placement of the paddler in the open water area on the left side, but facing the opposite direction would make a more balanced composition.

    Wow! Lovely imagery. Wonderful composure. Love the reflection of clouds in the water.
