Pond Reflections

I was drawn to the rugged coast in Newfoundland with its rocky cliffs, big round stones and small colourful pebbles. But for something new today, to show the diversity in the landscape here, I have two images of pond reflections.

It is quite a contrast to go from the big wide rugged landscape to a small intimate reflection scene in a calm serene pond that was only steps away from the jagged menacing shore.

    I like the second one. The simple lines make it interesting.

      Thanks Charlie, the second one is my favourite too. I like how the lilly pads help distinguish the real from the reflection. Thanks for stopping by!

    Love the second image Anne – it really distills down the essence of the scene.

    Like them both Anne for different reasons. They both scream serenity (should I have used scream with serenity?).

    I’d go for the second one. Much simpler, more impact for me.

    Thank you very much for leaving me your feedback Kris. I think the simplicity really works in this type of image. Well, in all images really!

    I prefer the second one – like writing, sometimes knowing what to leave out makes all the difference.

    • Anne McKinnell says:

      Hi Gregg, Hmmm…. I’m wondering if that comment was really about my writing? :) It is something to keep in mind! I really appreciate the feedback, thanks!

      • Gregg Marquardt says:

        Oops. Nothing wrong with your writing. I’m a communications mgr by day, so I’m continually working to edit myself in words AND in pictures.
