[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There’s a small body of water by Thomas Road, just past the Groton-New London Airport in Groton, CT. It is north of Baker Cove, a sheltered inlet off the mouth of the Thames River and Long Island Sound. It’s a pretty place that I pass when I go to work. In the evening, the water is usually very still. I decided to take a picture, through the tall grass on either side of an access path, toward the water and trees.

Hi John. This is a very nice water picture. It could be here in Southern England . It looks so much like the area i live in down by the river. I like the refection of the trees in the water. Good rich colours. well done TFS.

Very peaceful indeed.
Good colours. You provided a very good tonal curve. It isn't too much in terms of contrast...

Very peaceful scene... I like the solitude it presents. A good place to reflect... well presented.
