You have no excuse....

Postby Didereaux » Thu Apr 20, 2017 8:16 pm

There is a beautiful landscape shot to be found any place. This one is simply a small pond in a city park. It is printed on 20x30 and hanging in our living room. Also overlooked by almost all is the fact that landscapes do not have to be sweeping vistas...look down at the ground. Patterns of leaves, cracks in the dry clay, or cement, on the beach all those tiny shells and jetsum can become a horizonless landscape. It's the beauty of the composition that is the art, not the subject.

Overall, I do like this shot.
My only negative is that the blown highlights are a bit distracting.
