The Stolen Child by catch---22 The Stolen Child by catch---22
WHERE dips the rocky highland
Of Sleuth Wood in the lake,
There lies a leafy island
Where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water rats;
There we've hid our faery vats,
Full of berrys
And of reddest stolen cherries.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand...

The Good:

I like the way the mountainscape is reflecting off the near perfectly smooth water. You can tell its not just a mirrored image by the shore and the tree to the right.

It is very well balanced in how you took the picture.

The Bad:

It just lacks originality, there are many mountain water shots out there and they eventually start looking the same.

Bottom Line:

Very impressive though, good work taking the time to size out and visualize this particular shot. Original or not, its still a beautiful piece of work and deserves a bit of attention!
What do you think?

The angle of which picture is done is very good. :)

White ballance is almost well..
By the way.. is this the original picture? or is edited..?

Anyway.. I think that was a perfect sunny day for this shot!
The reflection in water is good because it is clear, and the colours are amazing.
You can put more contrast in this picture or put an action in Ps.. will look better.

The picture have a good quality and this is a good place for more pictures like this one !

I really like it! good job :D
( I am sorry for my poor english )

I love YEATS :
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand...

And you're a real human child here dear Dennis!!!

Months later P.S. I don't know why you didn't win the reflections contest. Every time I see this, it's a whole 'nother :omg: :wow: ! You had it featured on your page, so I refound it again. Anyhow, just sayin'.

Not sure I could be objective when concerning your work. I like so much of your work and have since, sheesh, 2009? You were one of the first upon whom I cut my photographic dA teeth. Hopefully I didn't poke holes and make you bleed. :o :lol:
