Of some locations you just can't seem to see too many photographs! The mist, the detail in the foreground, the depth, the pink-ish horizon. Wonderful! No other words!
But a returning comment is that it's hard to give any decent technical comments on this one without any details on the photograph what so ever. No camera settings, no lense, no body, no filter info. Nothing. So nothing to say about it technically. I learn myself from technical comments on my photographs and equipment. But well, that's me.
But would be nice if you could add an equipment profile and camera setting details to your postings.

Hi Michael. How apt the title!It seems we are floating inside a dream.Magical light and colours and lovely composition that takes us from the submerged seaweed to the distant, misty mountains. Beautiful work. Regards. Klaudio.

Beautiful shot! With the way the rocks in the bakcground fade as you look farther away it has an incredible sense of depth. The colour is great too, and I like the inclusion of the foreground underwater grass. This is a magical image - thanks for sharing and welcome to TE!

Very nice graphical effect, and soft nice colors. A capture full of sensitivity.
TFS and best regards

Your composition is great showing the grass under the water showing through the reflection. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF. The reflection adds nice depth and balance to the shot.

That's the trouble with comming along later to view a stunning image like this! Other critiquers have already said everything there is to say! Great work.

Stunning image, the top part is darker than the reflection, a ND grad filter was used I presume? I ordered mine last week, can't wait to experiment with it.

A mystic scene indeed! Great color, shapes, balance, and the mist over the water is fantastic. The DoF is perfect here,

superb image, the special colors are really nice, also the atmosphere and the foreground with the grass in the water.

I love the colours and composition here, as in a lot of your portfolio, but like Dennis would appreciate some more details about how you achieved them.

Hi Michael, this is a masterwork. Incredible good light management and your choice of POV including the waterplants make it superb. Congratulations and TFS

Even more stupendous than reality IMO ! I was there 2 times, enjoyed the scenery of course, but did not witness such a light and dreamy atmosphere : bravo !

Superbe jeu d'ombres et de lumières.

Very nice to see under water like this. Nice POV.
smarcell (19963) 2008-01-03 23:49
I love this too. I am sorry I have no more smiles for today.
The soft light is just great. I like the presence of the grass in the foreground, under the water, which fills this part of the frame with some color.

amazing picture, amazing camera
benkrut (2407) 2008-03-04 18:03
no doubt about it - this is an amazing picture.
First thing though which came to my mind is that the water is lighter than the sky. Even after I've read your explanation I think it's not quite natural.
Besides that the photo gets the A note.
