Normal view, for those that don't want to stand on their head or turn their monitor upside down. #535631

Amy JACKSON level-classic 10/7/2006 6:06:51 AM

Beautiful image, Ken! Wonderful reflection! Thanks for showing both versions! #3418281

Donna Dunbar 10/7/2006 6:07:20 AM

I think this is a gorgeous image and while I agree the stones in the water make an interesting patern I think the original is the one I like the best, great image though the reflection is so clear it really is hard to tell them apart. #3418283

Jeff Robinson level-classic 10/7/2006 6:33:14 AM

This works well both ways Ken! Great presentation for this beautiful image! Jeff #3418424

Bill Wyatt 10/7/2006 6:36:14 AM

Very creative idea like the presentation and colors, Ken!! #3418441

Mary Timman 10/7/2006 7:16:52 AM

Hey..I think it's a great idea. Thinking out of the box you might say.
Really is a beautiful scene though. #3418579

Marcie A. Fowler 10/7/2006 8:37:42 AM

Love them both. The original is a bit easier to view but I love the creativity and uniqueness of the flipped one. It makes a good optical illusion image.

Ronald F. Fischer 10/7/2006 9:32:51 AM

Great idea, Ken, but I prefer the original!! #3418868

Kitty R. Rodehorst-Hanna 10/7/2006 9:37:55 AM

HMMMMM!!! When I'm looking at the "flip" I like it best but when I look at the original I like it best. Oh My! I'm so confused! It must come from driving 14-1/2 hours yesterday! Oh, what the heck!!! I LIKE THEM BOTH, Ken. PS. What I meant was that I would see you on BP next week...which is now this week! :-) Now, did I confuse you? LOL. Great photo both ways! ^.^ Kitty #3418883

Dennis Flanagan 10/7/2006 9:51:59 AM

Wine? More like smoking crack! #3418924

Linda D. Lester level-classic 10/7/2006 9:59:59 AM

I'm with Dennis!! LOL! Is he back?
It is a beautiful shot so I hope you post the other one too! Way to be creative! #3418933

Lynne Morris 10/7/2006 10:19:18 AM

Two beautiful images Ken, but glad you posted them both I was getting a blood rush! Beautiful colours and awesome reflections and I agree with Linda, post the original too :) #3418986

Tamara K. Walker level-classic 10/7/2006 10:28:33 AM

I hope you didn't hurt yourself when you fell off the wagon.
Magnificent capture either way. #3419016

Gail Vitikacs level-classic 10/7/2006 10:42:21 AM

Beautiful colors Ken...and very creative!!!! #3419068

eileen bedford 10/7/2006 11:10:25 AM

Creative Ken, love both views, streches the mind.... #3419176

Carla Metzler 10/7/2006 12:14:26 PM

That's different alright, the image is beautiful! #3419349

Kay E. Mahoney level-classic 10/7/2006 12:38:41 PM

Nice capture. Love the scene. #3419437

Darren K. Fisher level-classic 10/7/2006 1:13:44 PM

Yep different for sure. You would have got a kick of me trying to stand on my head. I have to say I love the original much better. As we all know that is just an opinion. Your detail and then the canoes adding a pop of color. WOW. #3419535

Leonard Pierce 10/7/2006 1:59:18 PM

Wow! Now that I'm over the little shot of vertigo...Very beautiful image Ken, but the original is much easier to view!! Great job! #3419694

John Connolly level-classic 10/7/2006 3:22:17 PM

Very creative Ken! I am not sure if I like the blue boat upside down, But it is still a remarkably good scene. #3419924

Claudia Kuhn level-classic 10/7/2006 3:53:27 PM

A new slant on life! Creative idea Ken, cool! #3420009

Nancy L. Green level-classic 10/7/2006 4:18:13 PM

Very unique and interesting concept Ken!! I do prefer the original but they are both are very stunning and beautiful!! <>< #3420082

Jenny Bosmans 10/7/2006 4:21:27 PM

Wonderful idea Ken! I do like both, but I prefer the original...gorgeous scenery! :) #3420094

Candice C. Calhoun level-classic 10/7/2006 5:25:03 PM

I love the unexpected quality of the presented version! Truly innovative work, Ken!

ccc #3420304

Nadine A. Lewis level-classic 10/7/2006 7:21:37 PM

Ken, this really caught my attention! This image is amazing even upside down! But I have to say, I like the original better.

<>< #3420680

Shelly A. Van Camp level-classic 10/7/2006 7:30:55 PM the colors so much in this!! #3420719

Kaye Burazin level-classic 10/7/2006 7:39:55 PM

Ray Clarke level-classic 10/8/2006 2:20:05 AM

Great idea Ken upside down image, Love it!!!(R) #3421334

She-She Killough level-classic 10/8/2006 2:34:46 AM

Yeah you had too much wine!! I LOVE the original! Why mess with an amazing image!! Good try though Ken. I was getting dizzy! ;) #3421365

Cathy Barrows 10/8/2006 5:55:31 AM

i like them both and I think you should post the original tomorrow just to see if the judges stand on their heads in #3421812

Nina Shields level-classic 10/8/2006 9:22:40 AM

Ken, amazing exposure and color work but I'd definitely have to vote for the original; I think the flipped version is amazing and quite fascinating but I also found it a bit confusing, trying to figure out what I was actually viewing; maybe you're just getting bored with all of your great winning shots!!!! #3422560

David Phalen level-classic 10/8/2006 6:35:15 PM

I'm with Cathy, I like them both and think you should also enter the original in this month's contest. #3424032

Ken Smith level-classic 10/8/2006 7:42:45 PM

THanks everyone for your nice comments. As for entering the "normal" one, I'll see how the "wine" version does first, and go from there. #3424237

Sheryl A. Hudson 10/8/2006 8:08:25 PM

It took me a minute to "see" it but love the creativity on this! #3424313

Kenneth Mucke 10/9/2006 2:04:14 PM

Tammy Scott 10/10/2006 3:55:12 AM

Very creative perspective #3429253

Laurie Daily level-classic 11/4/2006 3:10:03 PM

No, Ken...when I first looked at this image I thought I had too much wine! On second glance however, I discovered a very creative and unique way of capturing this beautiful lake. Wonderful!!! #3546126

Colette M. Metcalf level-classic 11/14/2006 9:37:54 AM

Maybe you did have ONE too many Ken??? I love it though:) #3586008
