I took this picture yesterday. I think thare was something similiar already posted, anyway here you have another one...

I like the colors from this shot that's why i wanted to share it with you all. The green comes from surrounding trees and those small drops are not rain, it is some kind of seed from the trees.

The only think i did was resizing and addind some more contrast.

BTW: i did not use a polarizer...

I'm glad you didn't use a polarizer. It would have significantly reduced the reflection of the trees.

I really like the colors in this shot as well as the composition. Good work.

Javis, from what I have seen so far, you seem to be doing really well with your camera. Keep up the good work and show us more.

Love the composition with the leaf off center. Green water is certainly a first in the challengebut it combines well with the rest of the colors.

Well done! Aloha

Nice picture. The colors contrast real well. I'm not sure I agree with Cal on the results of the pol effect. My experience with apol filter has been that it reduces glare but not reflection andthere is a difference between the two. I think the green would still be reflected specially because of the angle the picture was taken (almost perpendicular to the subject). If you have a pol filter, give it a try to see what kind of results you achieve. This is only my personal opinion, of course.
