    Lo, I agree this is so perfect you would not believe it if it was in a painting. That in part I think is what makes this extraordinary. Congratulations!

    Peace, rest, enjoy life. Wonderful mood. Also like the wonderful gradation of colours in sky and water.

    Thanks for your nice comments. If I had seen these colours in a puzzle or a painting, I would have doubted that they were true to life. I did try to alter them just to see what would happen, but in the end, decided that Mother Nature knew best.

hifi - At first I thought that the curved branch was graceful and added to the photo, - but I can see where removing it might give a better shape to the tree. Will have to try it..

    Very nice and different idea. And those colors are amazing.

    Just about perfect. Technically beautifully executed. [The only thing that keeps me from ranking this higher or even #1 is the tree itself which I find not very dramatic or interesting and unequal to the spectacular supporting elements of this shot. Technically, though, I don't think you could have improved on what you have here given the tree is what it is. It looks perfect.]

    I like the simplicity of your entry, I feel that even though missed the sunset it still is a great shot, the colors of the evening sky give it more of a shadowy look than a sunset would as there really isn't much in the photo to cast a shadow, nice job.

    Very nice. Excellent color and mood. The only thing is that lone curved brach that drops down- might have been better if it was cloned out, otherwise great shot!
