Hi Mark,
Very nice. I like the strong foreground and the depth of the scene. Nice rich color. What was the lens focal length? I'm guessing 20 or 24 mm? What type and brand of film? I'm also curious as to the location.

Yes, this is a real river. Actually its a spring branch that runs into the Current River in southeast Missouri, USA. I shot this with a 24 mm lens on Fuji Velvia. Thanks for the comments. Mark

Way to go, Mark. Congratulations on your 1:st prize!. It's a beautiful picture, with a breathtaking depth (due to intelligent use of the wideangel). I also love the limited color range (green/blue).
