One of my favorites from Owens Pond.

Sorting through some images that I am considering for a submission.

    The more I look at this the more I see. Not just the soft stillness in the reflection, but the textures of leaves and grass. Wonderful shot, Steve!

  2. The low-key look looks good. Are there 50 shades of gray?

    It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced a good fog. This is a beauty.

    I kept waiting for the Lady of Shalott to come gliding by — I certainly can imagine it. This looks like Waterhouse’s painting of her would have looked, had he gone for monochrome.

    • You continue to impress me with your knowledge of prose and poetry and the painted arts. I can’t even remember all the words to “The worms crawl in and the worms crawl out”. πŸ™‚
      That was a depressing poem, poor “Lady of Shalott”. OTOH, Tennyson’s use of poetic license made me feel better about some of my word tangles..”daffodilly”. πŸ™‚ At first when reading the quick wiki synopsis I wondered what was so special about Lancelot to merit a curse. That’s why we read beyond wiki. Seeing anything by Waterhouse was a new experience also. I can picture her floating by this reflection and could return the color should Waterhouse appear in a vision with a request.

    Beautiful, soothing, contemplating. I think the tree is resting in its reflection.

  7. As I was going through the reader my wife was looking over my shoulder we both stopped stared silently and then simultaneously said, β€œOh my God.” You definitely need a bigger wall.

    That is so beautifully peaceful that I don’t want to move in case I disturb the silence… πŸ™‚

  9. There is power in the subtleness of your image, Steve. Really nice, calming and serene.

    Ah, yes, it would be one of my favorites, as well. This is fantastic. I love the way some others has described it, as Magical, and with references to the Lady of Shalott. Beautiful work, Steve!

    I’m curious – was the scene that well balanced between the tree itself and the tree’s reflection, in terms of contrast? It’s beautiful, but something in me wants one or the other to be less defined. In any case, I do like it – what a sensitively rendered image! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Lynn.

      I couldn’t remember my processing so had to pull up the image and undo the layers to check. No modification to either half of the reflection. The GND function in ColorEfex is part of my basic adjustment recipe but when unclicked it made no difference. OTOH, I could adjust if needed.

        I didn’t mean to make you go toa ll that trouble! GND – grad neutral density? Interesting. No need to adjust, it’s beautiful, and there’s that magic that several people have remarked on. One wants to sink into it – I ca imagine sitting in the grass there. πŸ™‚

      • It was no problem, Lynn. I knew where to find it and just a few clicks gave us the answer. Yes, Grad Neutral Density. I have a set of them which I do use but when it is marginal I let Nik take care of things.

    This looks like a pencil drawing with exquisite shading and texture. Beautiful choice, Steve.
