Gunther Allen level-classic May 26, 2019

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? #127526

Serena Pierce level-deluxe May 26, 2019

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. #127746
