It doesn't very often happen for me, but this week the visiting independent judge gave top marks (20/20) for this image in the local club projected images competition. I took it in May this year at a reservoir near Aylesbury, using a Pentax KP and the HD DA 35 Limited lens. Some image adjustments were applied in PaintShop Pro.

Very nice indeed MrB. I'm curious to see if this would convert well into monochrome, it does look lovely as it is though.

Lovely image! The painterly effect of the water ripples is just delicious

Lovely.

Reminds me of Monet (if he hadn't discovered water lilies...).

Very nice. It reminds me me of those 'painting by numbers' oil painting sets.

Looking at it sideways (one 90 turn to the left), it looks like grassy insects flying peacefully across the water/sky... No idea why I looked at it that way, but glad I did.

I can certainly see why it took top marks. Thank you for sharing it. I enjoyed looking at it.
