I really like the intense saturation. Shadow on the sun itself is odd, and I think I would make the sky brighter than the water. More disturbing is the fact that the foreground dock and cattails have a vanishing point well below the horizon. The cattails also appear to be lit from the front when the sun is in the back.
very cool interesting image...Color saturation is great, like that intense colors and seagulls are perfect addition...well done author
I like this one . well done.

superb work! great tip on the ripples too
Impressive work, great SBS!
very very nice work ,good luck
I'm very well impressed!
The SBS is perfect.
Bother...In Step 12, I said I used a distortion map. No, I didn't. I used a *displacement* map. Otherwise known as that thingamacallit that makes ripples.
super creation......I like the way you used the provided pic,....
Great execution!... and very good use of source. Nice image!
It's simply incredible how perfect is the crane. Sometimes when I go fishing at the dam I see cranes there... and it's the same, perfect, realistic. But I think cattails are darker, brownish.
Lovely. Reflections don't shrink, however, so the reduction in heights to 30% in SBS Step 11 was unnecessary. (See the reflection in this week's 'Shore' contest or stack stuff on a mirror.)
Gorgeous, great attention to detail too =)
Thanks, all, for your comments. Erikuri, I think cranes and herons are the most graceful birds, altho hawks are the ones I long to fly with. These cattails have gone thru the skinny green phase, past the solid brown phase and are in the blown beigey, yellow, fuzzy stage. Can I go fishing with you someday?
Dan, I know that at this angle, the reflections would be long and not shrunk, but...well...I liked the way it looked this way. I've got my artistic license here somewhere and I'm pretty sure I renewed it this year...hmmm...
Fabulous work author,u did great job here,i like small details,like feather's at top of the legs and greenish highlight...well done author
Very quality job author.., I think the body of the bird near the wing/tail need a little more darker shade.. ( may be I am wrong), whatever..., OUT STANDING JOB Goes my favorite.... and definitely on the top 3... Good luck
Really nice job here! I personally would've liked a mix of step 11(left one) and the final piece for the reflection. Regardless, a timeless piece. Good luck and Congrats.
When you enter a contest...no one should even bother to enter after lol. Simply beatutiful work...I wish I knew how to draw like that. :p
CORRECTION: Saw the SBS. Not even a drawing. WOW. That is quite an amazing piece of work there.
This is amazing! Good luck!
great job ! good luck
So, last night, just about asleep, thinking about this entry and feeling something still wasn't quite right with it, one of the little voices in my head whispered, "Birds' legs don't bend that way. They bend backward. Duh."
I redid the legs, which meant I had to redo the reflection, which threw the balance off, so I put another lilly pad in to rebalance it.
I think I deserve a gold star.
Well done! I like the fact that you stayed pretty close to the source image. Just a few things that could improve the image. There are still a few parts of the concrete structure visible in the grass in the background. The cattails in the background are just as big as the ones in the foreground. That way you loose depth in the image, I would either make the front one a lot bigger (I think this would create a lot more depth) or the back one smaller. Good luck!
hereisanoop, when I fixed the legs, I took the opportunity to darken the under tail feathers. Thanks! Ressiv, that was one of those details I didn't think of, concentrating on the balance of the image. I've made the back cattails smaller. I thought the unsmudged parts of the grass kinda looked like grass seed, but I went ahead and smudged them some so they wouldn't stand out quite as much. Thank you!
Great! It's a very nice image, to finish it all of you could transform the right legs reflection and move it to the right, it's not underneath the real leg anymore
Its done. Thanks again, Ressiv.
