    If you posted it before I certainly didn't see it, and I surely would have remembered. This is stunning and I can see why it's a favorite. The subject is unique - I've never seen a swimming rail - and the techs look great. Lovely color and reflection. Congratulations!

    Very nice Colors, Unfortunately eye is not sharp, probably due to motion blur.

    No need for apologies this is beautiful, I wouldn't be at all surprised if many viewers look at this and wish they had been presented with a similar opportunity. I have looked at the image several times now and it just gets better! The colours are to die for and the reflection just couldn't have been better.

    I have only seen one rail swimming, and that was behind some thick cattails, so this is a treat to see out in the open. Sweet reflection too. I love that little white-lined tail.

    Nice to see the rail in the open and swimming! Love the color in the water.
