Monte Stevens from Fort Collins, United States

This person is showing one of the main reasons I enjoyed fly-fishing so much. I could wade out in the middle of the stream and the only music I could hear would was the river's song.

john4jack from Corvallis, United States

Terrific selective color. Wonderful scene.

19 Mar 2009 1:48pm

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

A great place for a break. Selective colors is a good choice but i find that it's a little to much strong & vivid... i would like to see soft colors in harmony with peacefulness of the scene... just my own taste...

A fine use of "spot" color to give special emphasis to the person. I like the technique in this instance because of its logical and well-done use. Fine image.

An attractive treatment, the life on these streams it's lost in its thoughts and we in your image. Haughtiness
