    I went looking for semi-abstract shots in the garden today. I returned with lots I erased, and also this one of the pond. It shows lilies pushing up through the water and the reflection of a dark sky that soon poured with rain.

    A very interesting shot there, I reall like it where you have the blue sky just peaking through the dark clouds - very nice!
    I think the sun though spoilt the lefthand side just a little with the water reflection, if you ever get to try again I would try and wait for the sun to be hidden behind a cloud and then shoot.

    Thanks for the kind comment Overread. In fact I made a point of waiting for the sun to make a filtered appearance on the left of the frame because I wanted the contrast that a full tonal range gave to the image as well as some of the translucent effects that accompany it.

    Regards, Tony

    I like the interplay of light and dark on the diagonals in this pic. There's an almost ethereal feel to it.
