Very beautiful image. I love the colors. Congrats. #1350916

George Collazo 5/14/2005 7:35:50 AM

Beautiful colors, I love the overall composition. However, I see some dust spots from the sensor on the photo. Nothing that the healing or cloning tool cant't fix in 60 seconds. Since I live close to a national rain forest in Puerto Rico, I frequent there for long exposures like this. Spots on my D100s sensor at F/22 are as common as the greenery. Keep up the GREAT Work Robert!!! Blessings from Puerto Rico! #1350934

Scott D. Winkelman Jr 5/14/2005 1:40:11 PM

Thanks again for all the wonderfull comments. I shot this picture about a year ago but no where near the effect I got this time! Sometimes it takes that extra eye and creativity to capture your imaginations. It took some time sitting in the water and waiting for the right light to capture Natural Bridge but it paid off in the end! Thanks Again.............Scott #1351759

Hi Scott!
May I have your permisson to obtain this image? It is just for personal use. I have a grand vision and am creating a "natural wonders" water cave feel in my litte bathroom. Your photo would be stunning and PERFECT printed on a custom shower curtain. The intimate, enclosed feeling of the photo is perfect for a "spa" bathroom. Yes, please?!

Bonnie Matthews 8/18/2010 10:41:46 AM

Hi Scott,

It's me, the cave spa bathroom lady. I forgot to give you my contact:

Thanks! #8845995
