I think this is a wonderful piece. As an abstract nature shot it is full of emotion and energy! Great work, I'd love to see more like this.

Serena- If I may ask, do you remember what your shutter speed was and f-stop. Was this manipulated with filters in photoshop? If so, was it a combination?

Beautiful design, motion, colors and light make a wonderful abstract, Serena. Bravo!!

Thank you all so much!! This was my first try at reflecting leaves in the water and I really liked the results too. The photo was made on shutter speed priority at 2 sec. Kodak E100VS. Slide scanned on Nikon Cool Scan 4000 and submitted as is, no alterations in Photoshop.

stunning work and it's leaves reflected in water as in a river cause it looks more like ocean movement
