I love it. No center to the composition, but I love it anyway. Also, this is a picture that absolutely doesn’t work in color. The leaves are gaudy yellow and dark green and it practically burns my eyes looking at it. It’s not MY fault. It really looks like that.

So, it is imperfect. It might make a nice pattern for fabric or even wallpaper. As a photograph, it’s rather “meh.”



  1. You make me laugh Marilyn 🙂 :D. I can see why the image can be more interesting in monochrome with its pattern and shapes. This is a lovely capture and edit. It has a bit of a negative film look. I like it 🙂

    • In color, the leaves glowed. I’m not a “glowing” picture kind of gal, so I went with black and white. Better than color and less blinding. It’s a pretty pictures. I bet someone who knew how could turn it into a nice fabric design. I think I’d like it as a scarf 😀

  3. I think this “works” as less than perfect and less than what you hoped.
    For me, it is beautiful in the arch shape, as well as the deep contrast of the water, Marilyn.


      • I know what you mean, Marilyn! I like your vision of wallpaper pattern in a pale green. Occasionally I like a scene and then when captured on film, it’s a disappointment. Not bad but less than what I had hoped for or expected.


        • I think this kind of picture never looks as good as our eyes see it. The lack of a central image and “movement” in the composition make it pretty … but not a great photograph. But it is pretty. It’s not a ugly picture, just not an especially good one.
