aperture: 20
shutter: 8 sec.
time taken: 11:08am

used a tripod

even though the sun was high in the sky this place produced lots of shade. I was able to get my tripod very close to the pool and get a low profile shot. I actually took two different compositions to see which one I and others like.

I used selective color and curves. I only lightened the dark areas slightly to create more contrast with the lighter areas. I like having the water glow so I lighten the colors in the white setting of selective color.

    Great exposure. I like the composition better here than in the other. It’s nice as well, but I like this better.

  • Thank you so much for your comments and thanks for the critique. This is very helpful as I keep progressing through the photography field. I’ve been doing this for almost 3 years and love getting pointers from other people.
