This is a great series. I really like the tree with the white background. IMO a great shot. The next one is also a very good capture with the duck and the last 2 are also outstanding. Looks like a great day of shooting. Well done!

Thanks Peter,

The tree with the white bacground was a minimalist approach as well as adding the high key treatment!

I appreciate the comments ;-)

Nice series of images, I enjoyed them. It's quite a different mix as well. From calm and serene, to churning motion. You have covered a large range of emotions.

I too like the minimalist tree with the white background. I also really like the different variations of yellow in the first photo, although I can't help but think if it would be even better if the horizon wasn't right in the middle.

Well done.

I actually like the #1, even though it's split down the middle, because there's a pier? doing the splitting. Very pretty colors.

Moving the pier to either 3rd of the image, though (top or bottom) will of course change the look, but not too much I think because of the similarity between sky and water.

Very pretty, though. I like 1 and 2.

My favourite is the second last one - number 9. Amazingly gradual colour transitions.

Almost has no horizon - the sky and water merging imperceptibly.

Wonderful series, I like the duck shot best but every one is eyecatching.
