A wonderful, artistically presented set of images. #2 - The hillside and diagonals of the boats and the hillside elevate this one above the rest for me.

Wonderful set of images, most unusual lighting, and remarkable for the stillness of the water, creating the perfect mirrored reflections.
Hard to pick favourites, but for me the first three, with #2 standing out with its background providing context.

Eerie stuff. A bit scary even! Very good idea - as usual.

I like #1 and 6 the best withthose hints of hills and towns. #2 is really attractive too but I dislike the fourth boat (that may be personal!). The uncovered boat in the last is almost best but I would really prefer more space - I think these photos need plenty of dark space.

A very interesting set of images Harald. My favourite is #2 I think because of the greater context provided by showing more of the bay and hills. I am also quite fond of the perspective the 200mm brings to #7 and perplexed over how a light came to be in the lake in #5.
C & C always welcome

I really enjoy seeing something a bit different and these certainly tick that box! #2 and #6 for me, love those ghostly shrouds.
