thanks ms. julie and syd.

once again, pleas understand that i am going for surreal here, so over saturation

and blur were used to this effect.

any opinions on how to improve the shot would be greatly appriciated!

Scot,

Nice shot and I like the effect - the oversaturation works well with those greens, and I like that you've kept the centre sharper than the corners. My eye is drawn to the greens of the bramble leaves, which is nicely on a third. Nice long exposure for the water blur, too.

In terms of improving the photo, I'll hark back to the first thing Dustin ever said to me on the forum - I think this would work better if you got lower down and shot on the same level as the water, instead of shooting down on it. I think that might add more depth to the photo. Maybe find a mini-waterfall/some rocks, if you can find some that have the ferns and such close to them.

Best,

-Ben

Hey Scot.

I really like this series you have done. I think the dreamy look is real fitting. I almost expect to see some faires and stuff in there somewhere!!

This one there is a patch of brown at the bottom left that I don't particularly like - the nice blue reflection on the rest of the wateris so much nicer.. .its a shame really - other than that it is very nice.
