    raf I sure miss your comments and your entries so I for one would be really happy to see you back more often. (P.S. My life is always so out of control so I just go with what comes!!!)

Jan 10, 2012
    Wow Raf - you come back in style!! First and second, both well deserved.

Jan 10, 2012
    Congratulations and thanks for the link. I enjoyed looking at your other shots and got a lot of ideas. Glad to hear you might be back more.

    Congratulations Raf on your fine finish!

    This was my number one shot, and I'm happy to see many thought so - it's just perfect IMHO, and one can see the thought gone into it's composition and execution - well done!

    Thanks all.

Jade O. Probably will be increasing my particpation in Panachallenge again as my life get under some semblence of control.

AA : don't have a colour version, but there is not much colour there, The fog essentially washed out most the colour. It was a natural for a b&w treatment.

    Thanks all. The light is the thing. I had several lovely shots from this one morning. Here is a non-panasonic shot from that same morning

    Fantastic image, I love it! The shoreline in the background adds a touch of mystery to the composition. Well done!

    Great shooting position to show the landfall in the distance at the knees of the of the young lady and the beautiful reflection in the foreground.

Any one would get up early in the morning for such a sight.

    Perfect composition symmetry and execution, works beautifully in b&w - one of the best!

    All the elements are there for a great photograph. Out of my top ten only because I sense the shot is crowded. I would have like another third, or half, or more to the left and above.

Jan 7, 2012
    A good choice IMO, to convert to black and white

Jan 6, 2012
    Love the mood of this picture

Jan 6, 2012
    To me, the person standing there is essential for the composition. Unbelievable how calm the water is. Good range from bright to dark.
Bonus for symmetry and reflexion!

Jan 6, 2012
    You get a real feeling of cold and aloneness here.

    First thoughts not another walk way to the lake picture. You captured the solitude well and the stillness of the water. Framing of the fencing both in the water and sky give balance drawing the eye across the picture.

Jan 5, 2012
    ooh i like this. print and frame it. nice one!
