Water Striders

Post by LindaShorey » Sat Jul 01, 2017 10:29 pm

I was so excited to see I caught the sun's reflection in the first two. The third is from previous visit and in pp I changed the angle per Duck's suggestion (does it work OK this way?). All feedback and suggestions welcomed. These were edited from the dng files and heavily cropped.

Well, linda, I can see your recently burgeoning interest in water tension phenomena has paid wonderful dividends.
These images are not only technically excellent, they are elegant, delicate, and sensitive revelations of a unique life form most often merely noted in passing.
Beautiful job!

Dave

Thank you so much for your generosity, Dave. Isn't it neat how one thing can lead to another, totally unexpected! I greatly appreciate your interest in these photos. I've become quite fond of my little buddies :)

I love the shine on the first but love the second. The flat water is wonderful as is the composition. Well done! S-

Linda, I'll echo what Dave said, as well as add that no. 2 is my favorite. Each of the others exhibits characteristics that I like, but 2 get my attention a very little bit more.
