1. Ohthatgirl2001--como-lake ----I loved the colors and composition in this one
2. Stevequad---reflections ----Droplets with reflections inside, I've tried to do this and can't get anywhere near this colorful or interesting
3. Danny Raphael---rattlesnake lake ----I like the classic look of this and the b&w works well for this image I think

Danny Raphael - Stunning conversion to BW too.
Stevequad - Really creative use of reflection.
OhThatGirl - Rather ordinary reflection made extraordinary because of the circular movement of the tree leaves/branches.

I seriously think that the bar was raised significantly on this challenge. There were some superb entries. Kudos to all of us for participating and enjoying this forum.

Re: March 2009 Photo Competition: Votes

It's difficult to decide as there are things I like about all of these images but here goes:

1. Danny Raphael - Stunning detail, beautiful landscape reflection, skilled B/W treatment.

2. OhThatGirl2001 - Some detail was lost towards top of the image but the Radial composition of the tree and its reflection really grabbed my attention.

3. Frank Lopes - Clever observation and as sharp as a pin.

I also liked the sharp capture of Janet's reflection in the lake and the striking colour composition in crazyfly1's image.

Stevequad's colourful droplet capture is fantastic, but I think these are refractions rather than reflections and that's why I didn't vote for yours Steve. Maybe refractions would be an interesting subject for a future competition?

Re: March 2009 Photo Competition: Votes

This month's entries made it very hard to pick a winner:

1. DannyRaphael - classic b&w lake shot. Gorgeous.
2. OhThatGirl2001 - Loved the tree. Maybe cropped a bit to close
3. Stevequad - Very creative.
