R.Dee nr Corwen 3 wks ago, in gathering gloom of evening,with big storm gathering.

I was experimenting in low lighting with my brand new Kodak Z712is superzoom with stabilisation. This onewas hand-held at 1/16s F/2.8. Obviously, cropped on both sides, further to emphasis verticality.

Wow! I love the way the trees are silhouetted in the water reflection. I am wondering what this might look like as a horizontal composition. As it is, it almost looks abstract. The horizontal framing might lend more perspective to the shot?? Just a thought.

Well here's the original to play with. I quite like this version too, but it's still vertical. Maybe it's more like square, in essence. So now I realise it doesn't fit the challenge, after all!

Very nice, it works. i like how you can't see the trees on the far side of the water except in the reflection. I think there is alot fo look at in this image.

I like the second image more than the first since it shows more of the countryside. It gives more perspective to the trees and reflections.
