Just fantastic challenge as a whole and deail. ;-)
What a master. Excellent.
Specially to winner.
Somehow I cannot add comments to winning entry, a new feature maybe in dp.
You may know this but anyways:
It was for a reason Monet build the garden and the ponds exactly as he wanted them to be. A perfect scene to be painted later after it had matured inspecial filtered and reflected light.
So he put effort to get what he wanted, and if there was/is not a perfect scene or object to capture it must be made.

It really has the Monet feeeling and the atmosphere of the scene. And as you say the colors could be more vibrant but then it would be a different painting alltogether.
A very nice motion blurr in this one with colors.
at best. Gaussian blurr really gives this photo an edge.
use of motion blurr.
Congrats. A very nice image.
