Nature off the beaten path

I was on a walk with my sister and friend doing stuff for photography class and just generally enjoying myself. I stopped to take a picture because I liked the water and just generally love forest shots, so I took one and was impressed with it. Then I was in class a few days after we learned colorizing using colored pencils on our prints, and colorized the water and some of the trees. I was very happy with the results of this photo. I think it is my best photo to date.

Damn I do think its well done! I thought it was a color photograph that you had decolorized at first. Lookin fantastic.

Nice man, love the way this turned out -- the colors contrasted by the stark black and white give it an almost post-apocalyptic feel to me (nuclear winter anyone?); while the colors of the tree and water kind of give it that little sparkle of hope letting you know that life will still go on even in the presence of so much death.. The water is especially nice with that tone of blue, definitely a hand trick coloring on your prints ;) I definitely like this one, keep it up mate.

I tried to make a decent border that wouldn't subtract from the image, but it didn't do quite what I wanted it to, I decided not to fuss with it, nonetheless.

Hey hey, that's pretty damn neat. Although, it would've been a bit better if you made the road and some of the leaves and stuff around the water colored as well.

thankies for your comment :D

I tried to make the focus the forest, I see that patch of cement pathway as a huge eye-sore :\

You did a really good job on this, though I personally don't like manipulating photography. I perfer natural coloring over editing..
Anyway...
the coloring ish nice... i like how you only chose select trees to have color... :P

I think that editing a photo can be awesome, or disasterous. In this case I think it lended itself well. I enjoy it much more that its colorized. Such as though, it is all the editing I ever did, and ever intend to do.
