    This is a gorgeous picture, Patrick. I also see more than one image here. Eliminate the sky--keep the water's reflection and the reeds for another dramatic perspective.

Pat, another excellent image from you. I agree with Ron, there are at least three strong compositions in this image. I am such a fan of your work. Keep it up!

Marvelous exposure and contrast in textures here, Patrick, with the smooth water and that vivid sky! Beautifully composed, too!

Patrick, this is of course stunning. I studied this image for several minutes and decided that two things really make this image for met. First is the blue gradient in the water, which is repeated in the bands just below the horizon and in the sky. The second thing is the simplicity of the reeds in the quiet water juxtaposed against a more "active" sky.

Hi Pat,
I just came across your gallery today and I am in awe. I absolutely love your use of perspective and composition. Your images are very calming to the eyes and mind. I will definately be following your work in the future. I am new to BP and hope to have a gallery soon. I hope to get your input of my images. Are you a professional? If not (but I wouldn't believe it if you aren't) get this work out there!! Regards, Annie
