Your shutter speed is just perfect, Chris - lovely flow but no blown high lights. I particularly love the unusual and brightly colored plants in the foreground. Great lines in the overall image, too.

Agree with Katta here, its PERFECT, Chris. Great use of ND filter and love that saturated colors. I say we would see a POTD first, good luck!

Huge Congratulations on this superb Gold Winner and on all your other Finalists (I've been out of town without internet and so am still catching up).
