A very peaceful scene Jason. The water theme seems to have brought out the "harmonious" in many of the participants - myself included. Beautiful simplicity here, both in the subject and the colours. I love the shadows beaking up the flat colour of the water. Excellent work.

Green is such a restful color - the water lily leaves blend with it beautifully!

Fits very well! Of all this, I love those small dots on the leaves. Such details in the middle of simplicity.

Jason I am new to your blog - just had to see who was in the AM3 water series. Lovely post, the depth of field is excellent, will be visiting again.

p.s A wonderful b&w self-portait in your profile. How is Belgium treating you?

Nice water treatment -- it hardly looks like water at all, but like something solid. (The shadow helps give this impression). Way to see a familiar substance in a new way!

Meditative, tranquil, all that still water should be.

Pretty. Very pretty indeed. It's not easy to capture leaves floating on water but methinks you've passed such a difficult assignment with flying colours.

Beautiful! So peaceful!

I think the leaves are a bit over exposed.

1 May 2007 12:17pm

@Shuva: A little bit yes!

Srinivas Koduri from Wheeling, United States

The shadow makes interesting patterns here. Very nicely composed, minimalistic.

Great messing with depth perception! Nice effect.

Wow, you made green water look interesting.. Looks like its solid. Great shot

very green!

Lovely Jason! and good to finally catch up after my prolonged hiatus. I like how this has an almost infinite sense of depth, My eye cant decide if theyre floating on water or if theyre floating several feet above it in thin air, although logic dictates its the former rather than the latter and the visibility of the stems brings it all back to reality. Man thats some swampy looking water youve got flowing over in Belgium.

I'm not sure of the quality of the water, it looks like too many algae but it sure makes a very nice photo. You did a good job making green water interesting and beautiful.

The leaves appear to float out of the photo.

A delicate and sensory work remembering an oriental vision. Beautiful composition!

As Duncan said, a great floating disorienting quality about this. Took me a moment to understand what I was seeing - an experience I always enjoy. Anyway, it's a lovely image. Thanks for your help in making this theme a success, Jason!
