It does look a bit hazardous for a canoe, but it sure is gorgeous, Carol! #7994996

Val Feldman level-classic 9/29/2009 1:23:23 PM

Beautiful! Inviting! Makes me wish I was there to see this! I love what everyone else mentioned - the water veiling, the lighting, shadows, pov, etc. etc. - all excellent - but what really "floats my boat" is the awesome green of the moss you captured; how the sun reflects off it...it just looks so lush..OK, OK, I admit it, I'm a moss lover! I love your "stuff", Carol!! Great eye (to catch that moss, just so, in this perfect capture!) :) #7995123

Marty Straub level-classic 9/29/2009 1:24:24 PM

WOW the light here is simply exquisite and like Valarie, I love the moss and that slight light on it. The veiling of the water, they dappled lighting and overall composition is terrific, Carol!! I am not one to make predictions, but I bet we will be seeing this again!!! #7995229
