  #199 Landscape
Entry 3 of 18
   
 
Calico Creek       ©2018 SteveBee
Panasonic DMC-GX85       3rd place, 145 points
1/59s, f6.3, ISO 200, 70mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Shot hand-held bracketed 3 exposures in raw and merged in LR. Cropped slightly. Tweaked clarity.       Extra Info: Calico Creek is a tidal creek and salt water marsh. It's hard to make an interesting photo of a marsh but I liked the random pattern of the grass and water plus the little red boathouse and pier gave a nice focal point. This was taken just before sunset.

    This was my #1. I struggled with the presence of water, but I thought there is enough "land" to offset it. An absolutely gorgeous image.

    This is a beautiful shot and high in my favourites. I love that small detail of the red boathouse, such a little thing can make such a big impact upon the scene.
I'm sure that this would be absolutely stunning as the sunset develop[ed further.

    Lovely scene, well-composed and shot, with great light. While the brief might seem to discourage so much water, to me this is clearly inland water (not a seascape), so it's OK.

    I feel the water tends to dominate here, which is contrary to the challenge definition. That drops this a bit lower in my vote.

    beautiful shot and I like it but... per ysal: "Water, buildings, and people may be part of the image, but they should not dominate"

    Perhaps it's hard to make an interesting photo of a marsh but you succedded very well ! I like your composition and pastel tones.

    My favourite. I wonder if you thought of taking a bit off the bottom but was constrained by the aspect ration rule which also affected my composition, as you need all the width.

    This is my absolute favorite of both the Open and Main!! Wonderful capture and composition.

    This is gorgeous. Very high in my TT. The pattern of water and grass is wonderful.
