Great detail in this one. I like the composition because there seems to be enough room to breathe. Good job on the exposure to keep detail throughout the range, too.

Hi Maciej,
Nice subject here. I like the contrast between the hard sharp lines of the mountains versus the soft fluffly clouds behing. Great detail here, but I feels a little "tight" me.

Wow, amazing shot, Evelynn. This must be a planted garden, right? [Oh, I guess you can't say for fear of getting pulled from TN.] Nevertheless the flowers are amazing. I like your rendition of it -- one of those shots that really doesn't have or need a focal point.

P.S. Enjoy Wyoming (Jellystone and Grand Tetons). Holle if you get near Lethbridge (east of Waterton).

Very nice, Janice. I love Indian paintbrush and you've captured this very well. I probably would have banged the contrast hearder, but I think I prefer this more delicate approach.

Great macro, Durzan. The lighting is very dramatic and makes the shot for me.

Interesting "profile" shot, Gert. It really adds a novel and I teresting perspective. Nice job with the exposure for the white flower and good use of DoF to isolate it.

This is an amazing "two shot" Anna. I like the details and positioning. Great work capturing the image. I wish you could have captured their complete reflection, though ( reflections are on my mind lately).

Nice, Niek. Well recorded. I especially love the crop on the top - just that bit of brightness on the top really helps frame the shot for me.

This one grows on you (me, anyway). The darkness of the setting is kind of off-putting and interesti g at the same time, like missing the top of the falls (the precipice). I find myself lookoing deeply into the details. I think I agree with Paul about the leaf on the bottom left, I don't think it's big enough to provide informal balance, and I think the shot would be stronger with it cropped out. But I strongly agree that this is a very strong shot, easily calendar material.

P.S. I'm glad you got to meet Evelynn. I hope we'll get to meet someday, too.

Wonderful capture, Joseph. A great specimen, and perfectly captured. Amazing details, a nice tight diagonal composition, good use of a limited DoF, and a story with the meal in his mouth (I'm assuming a male because of the bright coloring).
