Watery motion and Reflections.

Post by John N » Sun May 13, 2018 10:02 am

A recent visiting pro. to our club challenged us to find a point between a milky water flow and a millpond reflection to show both movement of water and a reflection. I took this in England's New Forest rather hurriedly, but I'm reasonably pleased with this, one of a series in my first attempt.
It has been viewed on other fora but I'm keen to hear what Photomentorians make of it.

I also showed it at a recent U3A group meeting where it was liked - but our U3A group has a little of the Holiday slideshow feeling to it.

I think you nailed it, John. There's just enough gentle ripple in the water but the reflection is perfect. I also like the fact that I can see the down tree beneath the surface. The one thing I'd love to see would be a person or couple, center right, leaning on the bridge railing gazing into the water, but I know from long personal experience that unless you bring your own you just have to get beyond lucky. :D

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

I love coming across scenes like these, there's something about it that feels relaxing and just makes you want to sit awhile.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us! S-
