I just love it. I guess I'm glad to know what it really is and how it was done, but actually I don't care. I love it. It's beautiful and I would have it on my wall! (OK)

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

Wow, this turned out really good! You'd think it was a reflection in a pool of water if you didn't know any better (wink-wink)!

I absolutely love the colors and the processing! Really cool! S-

Glad you liked it Chuck. I can't take credit for spotting its potential, Steve with his eagle eye for color and composition saw it. My husband''s car is always parked under that same tree so those same reflections have been hiding in the hood every fall for years. It took someone with different eyes to spot it, but once I saw it, I knew I had to try to make something of it.

Thank you. Add your version if you take the notion. It's your spotting anyway. How different people "see" is so fascinating.

Looks like you took a photo through the window of a moving car. I like the effect; I can feel the wind. Color is very pleasant. Successful experiment. Matt
