I really like how the clouds made the water look here along with the contrast in colors.

    Wonderfully composed, Darren. Agree with you on the water. Also the way the boats are lined up. Fine work.

Love the strong colors and lines tempered by the cloudy reflection, Darren, very nicely balanced.

I really like this one, Darren. Love the contrast of the colors and you're right about the look that the clouds give the water. Nice one again. Different for you, but I like it!

Hey all thanks for the way to kind comments. All I done was used my polarizer which helped bring out my colors. And then in PS added the dreamy photo to it. Just a tad not to take away any detail note you are still able to read the lettering on the canoe.

Hey, Darren! Made a discovery of this beautiful winner from '03 when it popped up on the bp homepage a few minutes ago. I see why the judges, and everybody else, were so enthusiastic about it! Belated CONGRATULATIONS!
Quite a year since then, eh? But it can't compare to the one coming up, I'm sure...
Happy, Happy New Year to you and yours, Darren!
