Wondeful composition Christopher, great detail and colour (ac) #2673361

Christopher Budny 4/22/2006 9:32:15 AM

Thank you, everone! I liked the original (the circular polarizer really deepened that cloudless sky!) but I've had fun playing with Flood, too. I've got to give it a rest now... No more floods, this month! ;) #2673544

Leif Kjaer 4/22/2006 9:55:45 AM

Absolutely impressive image. #2673644

Wonderful colors, image and effects. #2675386

Christopher Budny 4/23/2006 7:09:33 AM

Many thanks, folks! I appreciate the comments. The "unflooded" version of this same image doesn't seem to have quite the same punch as this. #2676412

Janine Russell 4/23/2006 10:00:44 PM

Christopher, excellent color, exposure, composition and effects. #2678926

Mick Burkey 5/22/2006 10:09:43 AM

Great use of the effect, Chris. BIG CONGRATS on the finals. And thanks for the info on the shot. Amazing that you made this image from things unrelated to the final. Great eye and imagination, my friend!! #2799617

Don Johnson 5/22/2006 11:04:14 AM


Congratulations! Very creative work. I wish I had thought of it. A real winner. #2799892

Christopher Budny 5/22/2006 2:04:01 PM

Thank you both, guys, so much! Definitely the "flooded" image I'm most happy with, from my experimentation with that filter! Certainly adds a punch to the original image! #2800664

Mary Clarke 5/22/2006 4:01:22 PM

My congratulations, too, Christopher! Love the abstract look you've achieved and the flood filter works so well here!....gotta try that one of these days!! Good luck in the finals! #2802341

She-She Killough 5/23/2006 1:51:01 AM

Might be your final flood filter image for a while but it is DARN COOL!!! There is flood filter use and there is FLOOD FILTER USE! Yours is the Latter...well done! Congrats Christopher!! #2802801

Christopher Budny 5/23/2006 4:43:47 AM

Thank you, She-She... seems to me I recall you have some pretty good floods yourself! #2803267

Corinne M. Thompson 5/23/2006 8:18:08 AM

Robert M. Nicholson 5/25/2006 3:56:22 AM

Congrats! I really like the abstract feel to this! #2812968

Christopher Budny 5/25/2006 8:07:06 AM

Thank you, Rob! Would make a pretty cool water feature, I think ;) #2814017

Sam Britt 7/5/2006 1:22:15 PM

I really like this. Excellent use of the flood filter. Congratulations (a little late) on your finalist.

Sam #2989357

Christopher Budny 7/6/2006 9:00:51 AM

Thank you, Sam... It is a fun filter to play with; I got a little carried away, initially, flooding everything! #2992584

Sam Britt 7/6/2006 9:36:42 AM

I know what you mean, I got carried away with Flaming Pear's Flexify as well - I was mirror-balling everything! #2992666

Judith MacArthur 9/23/2006 6:27:46 PM

This is one of my favorites, Chris...but you have too many for me to choose from! :-) Judy M. #3351664

Christopher Budny 9/24/2006 4:04:14 PM

Thank you very much, Judy! I seem to enjoy the software work on photos, as much as the taking of photographs... always interesting to me, to see what can come out of an otherwise ordinary image! #3355429

Amanda D. Austwick 7/22/2012 8:26:10 AM
