    Thank you all for your very kind and encouraging comments. Just so you know, this was a location that I had scouted out and wanted to photograph for some time. I was hoping to capture a mysterious atmosphere. Had to wait for a misty morning and then get up before dawn, but it was worth it.

    Congratulations on making the no. 1 spot in a fine field of entries. I admire so many of your submissions any chance we could persuade you to toss your hat in on a few more challenges during the year?

    I'm letting some great images out of my votes, but finally I've decided this one will be in my TT in such strong competition, I like the pic very much, it has some "mystery" look that is very appealling, and the reflections are beautiful... well done!! :-)

    This has an almost 3D feeling of depth to it, along with the excellent B/W conversion. A top 3 shot for me.

    Great mood!
...Very very strange!

    This is about the finest B&W photo I've ever seen! The composition and exposure are spot on. The mist and reflections add a magical quality. You're going to win!

    A hauntingly beautiful b&w shot. The absolute stillness of the water and the reflection make this quite special. One of my top favorites. Good luck.

Una

    Mystique, unique, and perfectly captured. In my TT. :-)

    Very impressive picture. Looking dismal and still beautiful somehow. Greatly done!

    Nice use of backlighting and reflections..tt.

    I like that diagonal so much.
B&W works very well.
In my TT.
Good luck

    Neat shot. In my tt but I would love to have seen the colour version.

    This is, in my opinion, by far the best entry in both categories. It's wonderful, and I would love to have it hanging on my wall!

Edit - I'm looking through the entries again and I'm just as impressed with this as I was first time round! It's an outstanding shot that deserves a 1st place finish! Good luck!

    Technically, this is fine, with sharp detail, and good composition and lighting. The subject matter is dramatic and well presented and the scene somewhat unique, but I sense a deadness about it that keeps it out of my top spot but still in my top ten.
