Once again you have proven that magnificent work can be accomplished with a simple, relatively inexpensive camera.

I love the perspective you have achieved, the ripples in the water, which echoes the composition above, the colors and tonality in the twilight. This is well done on all counts, as if your wonderful eyes and mind for visualizing this beautiful image.

Congratulations on your POTD and EP.

Bunny Snow level-classic February 25, 2010

What is even more amazing besides the perfect timing for the twilight and sunset, the composition, tonality, and the color of light you captured is that you are self-taught and use a low key camera and no magical photoshop plug-ins.

This just goes to show that it is what you do with what you have that counts. And you have done so much!!!!! Your work is incredibly beautiful!

Congratulations on your first place win!!
