Olympus E-620       12th place, 40 points
1/400s, f6.3, ISO 500, ?, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: straightened, changed white balance, resized       Extra Info: shrimp were running and something larger was trying to eat them. this shot didn't catch the fish as it jumped, but did get the pattern of growing ripples (or maybe i just chucked a stone in there).

    Nifty effect. I love it when I see how people can replicate film media in digital! And I really like this shot though I think a wider pano with more geography to the left would really bring a sense of expansiveness that I expect you feel when in this place.

    A real surprise for the last shot; one I cannot remember validating! So subtle, so good.

    So beautifully blue would tend to indicate Jade but I think this is more like elliott. Who cares, I love the quietness of the scene (well it would be quiet if that person stopped chucking rocks in the water) :-)

    I love the composition, and the circles on the water. I don't know if changing the white balance intensified the blue, but I find it a bit strong. If not, it's quite incredible!

    when i looked at the thumbnail i thought no one would even look at this one.
i did a firmware update on my old kodak and after that, it would select a similar wb in this low light. i was disturbed by it at first but then began to look for similar light to make it show up again.
this one is shot with the olympus. on this night, the sky was fairly flat looking. going the other direction just made it look grainy and over saturated. and of course i got a similar shot last night with brilliant colors. maybe get it in out takes later. el

    Quiet, serene and beautiful color.
Nice composition and the circular ripple immediately catches the viewers eye.
My #1.

    I was going to criticize the unreal colour but hey the choice actually works. I love th subtlety of the circle here and the sense of calm. Minor critique the tuft of grass/reed at bottom right does not add much.

    I love the blues and whether you tossed a rock or not, the shot is made. Nice effort!
