Thumb-up Thumb-up    from lunanightwynd/Sonja (1,654) Send mail to this user on December 15, 2012 1:56:33 AM CST (1) Early critique

Love it Ed! Colors are awesome, focus & composition are really nice. The only thing I would suggest is that the cropping be either up or down in the FG. The shoreline is just a little to close to center. Good job! Blessings, Sonja

The color, clarity and composition on this shot are all good. As reflection shots go this one stands apart because of the grass and lily pads in the pond. I don't know, however, whether that increases the impact or reduces it- for me it is probably the latter since I keep trying to see the reflection better through the grass. Nick

Nice shot, nice colours. good idea I would have moved the edge of the water a bit higher or lower to not lay at the centre. Did you use a polarised filter?

nope, no filters - although that might have been interesting.
