Perfect i cant find anything to fault. Id appreciate if people check out my pics in the future, and leave comments, suggestions, helpful tips, and rate them.

Thank you so very much. I saw this and probably took about 40 different shots. I've already ordered a 20X30 print of this.

I like the serenity and soft hues plenty, and that you got the top (and bottom) of the main tree; however, that's a lot of detail-less blackness: It's really very heavy over there on the left.

If you're going to keep the text, please consider that it's actually Sebago Lake, not Lake Sebago. This is one of 14-or-so facts that I know for certain.

Like it but its too weighty with the trees on the left side, needs balance.

I just dont understand how this can get a 7 and a syrup could get a 6, so theres only a one mark difference between the photos, the scorings all out of wack. Its a beautiful photo, something your would likely to see in national geographic, and i think its a little perdantic about the black of the trees on the left, as i didnt even find my focus drifting to that area once whilst looking at it till i noticed the comment, as im hooked on the calm waters, the light whispy cloud sky and horizon.

Not trying to be rude or anything, but if this gets a 7 when compared to other photos in the same scoring bracket /:)

Keep at it mate, think you captured the image of serenity perfectly.

Also without professional lighting, how is he supposed to get that same image, with the same exposure but fill flash the bush?

Very well excecuted.

Scoring is not just based on the picture and whether or not it belongs on a calendar, greeting card or National Geographic (most unfortunately). Ratings are also apparently based on the time it took to capture, the trouble it took to capture, the lighting exhibited, the technical expertise required to get-it, serendipity (luck)in capturing it, the percentage possibilty of re-shooting it successfully if needed, composition, and most of all: originality.

In the comparison of Syrup to Sebago (6 to 7), it also has to do with capability and originality (have we ever seen a shot like this before before?) as well as improvement over previous posts and willingness to endure losing the competition and suffering the criticisms of strangers.

Very nice capture.I agree totally with Gary.One thing to remember about this ratings thing, a lot of it comes down to what is personally preffered.Obvious when you look at the way the voting goes in these comps.You cant please everyone.But I like this even though its not my cup of tea.
