Again congrats to Sabrina!
My vote went to Jeffs (kerbside's) "Past, Present and Future", I loved the idea, loved the atmosphere of the shot and the lighting. I thought it was a great idea, great concept that was well executed so in all nice one Jeff!
Up - Alexharrison101 - Volcanic Past
Very interesting choice of subject and lovely detail my only real issue with the shot is the lighting which does spoil it for me as it is a bit shaddowy and looses detail, the detail that is there is lovely and I do like the sparkles that have been captured.
Down - Wil59 - Past, present and future resting place
Really nice idea, and a lovely location I do like the colours and the reflections on a sunny day a polarizer filter would work well here to bring out the colours more but it did look overcast anyway (maybe worth revisiting on a sunny day). My biggest issue with the shot is the branch on the left so I don't know if a different composition could have avoided this or maybe a bit of work with the cloning tool. If you shot this in RAW it maybe worth tweaking the white balance to try and make the colours a bit more golden. In all a great entry from a great location definately worth revisitng probably early morning before the sun gets to high so the water is calm.
These are of course just my opinions.
Thanks to Jimbojumbo and kerbside for my votes.
Well done everyone on the great creativity and shots this week.
