Very nice image.
2 Lukrecja (Joanna Kilen-Redesiuk)   (7/11/2005 5:13:29 AM)
very nice colors
3 Jnlkt   (7/11/2005 5:20:57 AM)
Very beautiful colors...only the background is too centric with the mountains even pointing to the very centered tower, it'll be perfect for me if the tower could be more at on edge of the picture.
Still very nice photgraph
4 Ad   (7/11/2005 6:39:44 AM)
Very nice color tones.
5 Rudi Van Gestel   (7/11/2005 6:51:15 AM)
Would crop a little from the left, to approve the overall balanced composition!
Frame is a distraction here imho, as there 's allready enough colour inside this wonderful image!
Nice golden reflections! Even the boat alone with some reflections would have made for a lovely image!
suggested crop >>
6 Kid Panama   (7/11/2005 7:25:47 AM)
Absolutely first rate! Wouldn't change a thing except maybe lose the frame.
7 Ray Griffiths ( )   (7/11/2005 7:44:54 AM)
Simply stunning!
8 Yuri Bonder   (7/11/2005 8:20:47 AM)
Very Very Very beautiful

Superb painting.

Melanie this is beautiful. The light is incredible. I'd get rid of the frame though. The yellow in the frame really distracts. Take care. Barb.
11 Alan Kinnersley   (7/11/2005 8:26:43 AM)
Wonderful image love those golden tones. Frame may be better with a softer inner color. The bright yellow band really distracts away from such a super image.
12 Jouko   (7/11/2005 8:43:32 AM)
One word: FABULOUS!

23 Greg (Greg Governale)   (7/11/2005 12:52:25 PM)
frozen feet.....Not for me....This image is very nice, very good comp and color! Greg Governale
24 WalterL   (7/11/2005 1:02:47 PM)
wonderful shot, though tend to agree with Rudi if nit picking (Ps This is a fully hudrated response!).

Beautiful image, very nice mood!
29 Les McLean (**** ))   (7/11/2005 3:43:28 PM)
This is quite lovely Mel, reminds me of Darwin's work. Although I agree about the frame, there's enough gold without it.
Still, I'm impressed.
30 cARTerART (Claire Carter)   (7/11/2005 4:06:54 PM)
Just lovely - that little boat was bobbing around quite a lot but you caught it looking perfectly still with the morning glow at its peak
31 joe bellantoni   (7/11/2005 4:10:20 PM)
I have just a passing suggestion...LOL the back of the boar where the motor might go is a dark gray blue on my screen and I would lighten just this area. Beautiful image...nice light...well seen.
32 Keith Frost   (7/11/2005 4:20:52 PM)
I'm really glad that you didn't keep this one tucked away any longer - it's quite beautiful. Lovely tones , simple composition, perfect . Well done Mel!
33 MJFerron   (7/11/2005 5:42:56 PM)
Should be ranked a bit closer to #1 than #106. Excellent work.
34 Les McLean (**** ))   (7/11/2005 6:21:41 PM)
#33 MJFerron(No more Mr. nice guy.):Mike it's got no chance of this happening, now if it had been OOF, loads of noise in the sky, part of the boat cropped, horizon wonky, and a camel/deer/rose/moon/Gandalf/ cut and pasted onto the far bank.
Then it would have stood a chance, as it is, never in a month of sundays;-)
35 archera (Roland DiSabatino)   (7/11/2005 7:46:19 PM)
That gorgeous golden light "floats my boat", Melanie ... very nice!
36 Koduck   (7/11/2005 8:03:29 PM)
Excellent!!! I am not going to insult you by nitpicking, you obviously know what you are doing. This image stands on its own merit.
37 MJFerron   (7/11/2005 8:38:38 PM)
Right as usual Les. What was I thinking? :0
Melanie I'm getting to view this now with the sun going down and more contrast on my screen. So now it looks even better. Congrats on landing this. Just beautiful.
38 khaled   (7/11/2005 9:41:40 PM)
Beautiful image

Absolutely gorgeous, Melanie! That golden light is incredible and I love the placement of all of the elements in the frame. Excellent!

45 Victoria ( .)   (7/12/2005 1:04:15 PM)
marvellous! i'm speachless here! great artistic photo! contratualtions!
46 Kenn Reay   (7/13/2005 7:03:50 AM)
Fantastic piece of art with the elements all coming together nicely. Worth all the blinks it has received. Kenn
47 Martin Stainsby   (7/13/2005 12:09:21 PM)
I love the way you have captured the light on this and the placement and sharpness of the boat is excellent. I'm not sure about the frame but that is personal and doesn't affect my vote.
48 Donald Campbell   (7/13/2005 12:52:46 PM)
Lovely lighting. Just enough green showing to convince the viewer that this is not a toned shot. February 2005 wa certainly a productive month.
49 Olo   (7/13/2005 1:36:34 PM)
excellent composition, excellent mood
50 gdanger (George Dangerfield)   (7/14/2005 11:35:29 PM)
You are always so good at capturing great light Melanie, but this is just spectactular, a strong composition, absolutely stunning!

What a jawdropper, incredible and moving shot.
56 Mark Curry   (8/13/2005 2:10:11 PM)
Simply magnificent shot.

57 Josh Feierman   (8/27/2005 9:22:21 AM)
Beautiful lighting! I like how the boat in the foreground adds a nice sense of depth to the shot.
