Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

floating in my small home made lily pond this past fall. I darkened the tones of the whole image a notch or two here plus cropped-sharpened once…. Natures own elements provided the real beauty I find in it…

Jewel tones in the water like Sapphires, Emeralds and Citrines come from the ponds surrounding tree line.

    This is really lovely Lj and the contrast of the softness of the leaf on the beautiful contrasty coloured water is just perfect!

    I like this Too LJ, The problem with most other “criticism” sites is that about half the people there think that it’s a license to appoint themselves “an authority” and judge everyone elses work! The real judge is the artist creating the work, Rules are made to be broken if you understand why the rule is there in the first place!

    Excellent image!

  • Thanks Jade. Glad you liked it too.. Plus.. I am not very good at all the p.s. stuff and all that altering-enhancing I probably would have hurt the looks of this should I have tried that. lol.. Thanks again for the positive feedback~ :)

    calm; peaceful; relaxing feel to this…almost zen-like….floating on a reflection……..
    very fine…. a visual meditation

  • Thats how I felt watching it Scott.. It relaxed my mind after a long day at work with all the people allabput and such.. It was a warm & friendly moment alone at the pond for me..Hahaha.. Thanks~ :))

    gorgeous simplicity, beautil colors…
    a true piece of artwork… do not change a thing !
    about basic rules of photography : “If you obey all the rules, you’ll miss all the fun.”
    rules are primarily there to be learnt and taught, and as quickly as possible forgotten and broken !
    my best, francis.
