    Went for a drive on Tuesday and decided to head to Hempstead Lake State Park to relax for a bit. I hadn't planned on doing any shooting but had my camera with me and brought it along. This pond was the first place I saw and I really wanted to photograph it. I got on my knees and leaned over further for a really low angle, composed the shot, set up my tripod, and suddenly the image of my case of memory cards sitting here on my desk entered my mind.

    Needless to say I went back yesterday and got the shot :p

    I like the DOF and the soft focus, it really works in favor of the photo.
    good job!

    I also like the softness of the photo, it works well with the subject you were shooting. I also like how you gave the photo a nice sense of perspective with the branches that frame the scene. The only thing I will nit pick, and its really minor, but your photo is slanted a few degrees to the right- notice how the water is slanted. But easily fixable- you can take it into gimp/photoshop and have it tweaked in no time.

    Wonderful but leans to the right a bit too much for my liking. Great shot nonetheles.
