Default Hello Dwayne!

You are really out-doing yourself this time. Such perfection in composition, perspective and light! This one would be hard to beat.

Again you have created a wonderful photo, arousing my couriosity of whats beyond the path and created a world of mysticism.
The colors are bang-on for this kind of mood!

Well done!

Let me add some remarks to Walters statement (which I agree with).

This is a fairly prosaic scene. I encounter it every Spring when I walk the path of the Muscoot River. It's boring, unattractive, and damn wet!

And yet you've turned this into something that grabs the attention - has mystery - Truly a great job of turning the humdrum into the subtely spectacular!

Great art, Dwayne, for obvious reasons. That blue teint and that brown - a feast for the eyes

Groovy photograph. The mood is very well established. The only thing that I do not agree with is the small areas of the baby blue in the water. They tend to really stand out in this type of photograph. This will deviate the eye from the main subject. As the photographer/artist it is up to you to determine what you want the viewer to see. Of course this is just my humble opinion. Overall I really like what you did with this scene...
