    This is beautiful Diana. Is it really the edge of a pond, or is it one of those flood filters I keep reading about? No matter which, it IS GORGEOUS! :}

Thanks, Angela! I chuckled as I read this because I showed this to my husband (after I added the flood filter) and he was amazed and said "I can't tell that it's not really there!" Yes, it is the flood filter. Thanks for your kind words.

brilliant balance
vertically in the reflection
and horizontally between the
masses distributed along
the shoreline
and between the colors
and the tones
and very nicely cropped
to preserve the delicate
balance
success as much by what
is left out as by what
is included
