[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had been frustrated with the seeming lack of photo opportunities close to home during our rainy Oregon winter. With my miniscule Canon camera in my pocket, I went for a walk determined to be more creative and observant. Upon encountering a rain puddle, I said, "Hmmmm? I wonder what this would look like. I really didn't see the possibilities in the field but once on the computer I found I loved the colors and textures that the ground beneath the puddle provided the tree reflection.

Hi Evelyn

Very clever picture. Have to look very closely to see what it is. Hakan is right about the impressionistic quality.

Hi Evelynn,
In my first glance I thought there were trees and there is a mountain far behind :o) I guess my eyes are quite tired now :o) It's a very well seen detail and a clever composition. Well done and TFS
Best wishes

Hello Evelynn

Very beautiful artistic shot.The reflection is deceiving,I like the way you composed this,and it is hard to believe this is just a rain puddle.Very good eye.TFS


Hi Evelynn,
Now that's the way to be creative! It does look like two scenes blended together, which is what it is. You captured the scene perfectly. Nice work!

Hello Evelynn,
Very artistic capture Evelynn, but then you are an artist so that makes sense. At first I was having trouble understanding what I was seeing but the note cleared that up. The leaves on the puddle add a third deminsion to this lovely capture.

Hello Evelynn,
It's crazy that I'm the first one to write for this impressionist beauty. Congratulations for having such an artistic eye. What needs to be in focus is sharp and the exposure is right. Could perhaps try increasing the brightness a bit, I don't know. All in all, very well done. Regards,
Will be back for the green stuff
