Exquisite! Impressionism in photography -- like a charcoal and pastel drawing on water which creates a feeling of flat, 2-dimensional surface against the movement and depth of the river -- as if the charcoal is rising and pulling up from the water like trees rooted in the soil beneath. Although it is liquid, there is also a texture of rippled glass and icicle. We look down to see sky. We only have reference to the reflection itself -- what is not really there becomes tangible. Meditative and extremely emotional -- the sweet melancholy of winter. Such a powerful composition, "Drawn on Water" is like a haiku in its purity, simplicity, and complexity of sensations of land, water, and sky through the movement and subtle colors -- silent, yet bursting with nature's sounds -- elegant and earthy, and full of wit -- perfect for this heat wave! My mind and body want to dive in to reflect further on this reflection...NOMINATED!

I don't believe that I have ever had such difficulty choosing just one image to nominate. In the end I had to eliminate those that I felt did not speak to the theme, then those in the style that appeal to me the least...heavy HDR...over saturated and then, focus on the ones that spoke to me. Of those, there were still more than I have ever had to narrow my selection from, in past competitions. I lean toward quiet themes carefully composed and artistically rendered.
