The Lagoon by r4tm The Lagoon by r4tm
Australia, Bribie Island, Mermaid Lagoon. The colors were odd and strange but natural so I couldnt resist. Only work done in PS is a slight unsharpen filter.

this is absolutely beautiful. where i am it's hard to believe that there are colors like this in nature, it looks so false...like a rainbow o.o
the water looks as if it could be of fire with colors like that...like a liquid fire.

LoL...I didnt do anything. The lagoon is like that. I assume some minaerals and the salt from the sea mix up there and create these colors :P

Krass, wieso fällt mir sowas nie auf!! Wohl weil ich nie an solche Orte komme gnarr..

Anyway, wirklich gutes Foto. Schlicht und zugleich Ausdrucksvoll, ich mag den Farbverlauf sehr gut leiden und die Lichtreflexe auf den Wellen. Hätt vielleicht n schwarzen Rahmen genommen (ok ich nehm immer schwarze Rahmen *g*) :)

Hehehe...den Rahmen habe ich von meiner besseren Haelfte verordnet bekommen...damit es nicht so dunkel wirkt :D In dem Fall geht wohl beides. Was die Farben angeht...einfach mal bei dem lokalen Umweltverschmutzer vorbeischauen...die haben alle moeglichen tollen Farben und Daempfe ;)
