Congratulations on the win. This is quite lovely in composition and my guess is , you didn't have a lot of time to capture it. Very nice!
Love the way the water softened at this exposure. Truly a beauty!
Simple and beautiful. Congrats on the win as well.
great.. you even got the lighting to be interesting! kudo's to you!
Ronan_M: Interesting challenge, I hope there is a second opportunity with more room...
I have set up "Simplicity II". IT will also have a 50 entry limit but if you are interested in entering, get your photo ready before May 11th.
your best yet!!!
The challenge filled up quickly with lots of varied, an interesting entries (In my view anyway).
Thanks to all entrants for participating and good luck to everyone.
Lucky photographer :)
and really both are skilled!
Congrats on a remarkable "catch"
I had to look at this twice, It's an interesting view. Congrats on the win. This is certainly what I was after.
gfa5775: WOW - I think this sets a record for percent of entries that do not fit the description.
Well, let's see... My next challenge is called "Simplicity". Just that. I do think a 1 word theme/title/ might still make you think and work on it. Hope so anyway. :)
I did start to DQ but I found a lot of push back. To some people, orange looks red, silver looks blue. There was a White/gold dress in the news recently that people were seeing as black and blue. Maybe it's a little like that. The response I got when I started to filter out some of the entries became a problem when trying to filter out some of these. So, I chose to leave them all in instead and let this be my last challenge with any real theme.
I gave this 5 stars because I really liked what you captures. Lot's of fun and well done!
This was a lot of fun to vote on. Some really well done entries here. Good challenge idea!!
Nice setting George. Somehow I would not have guessed South Africa at all - What a surprise! Congratulations on the win!!
JimW-203: Earlier a number of entries were disqualified because water was not visible in the picture. Several new entries have the same problem - has something changed to prevent them from being DQed?
You are right.
LeeStar: Rules say "should see the home" but not if the *entire* home has to be seen in the image. Would appreciate clarification. Thanks.
I did not say entire home. Any entry that you can see it's a home, or an abandon'ed home, home in construction, would all be OK
Please point out an entry you see no water, beech or evidence of a house. I tried to be as lenient as I can on these 3 items. I thought I DQ'd those that didn't meet the rule.
SHR100: Error in the title - should be 2015.
thanks - sorry - I rushed it in.
Congratulations. definitely the type of entry I was hoping to see at the top. She's lovely!
