Hi Angela, this would make cool wallpaper for a computer monitor. I like the repetitive detail you've picked up with all of these plants, with very good visibility into the mud underneath them. A couple of small things I might have done differently. I could be wrong and it might be natural but it looks like you used a star filter. Some people like them, others don't; in a shot like this I would have opted to not use one. As well though the detail and colour are very good, I think the shot could use just a tad more contrast, either through levels or curves. Ah, and I almost forgot. I really do like the way you tied in that frame. It blends in perfectly with the scene.

Thanks, John

Hi Angela!

Very good composition of the wet plants! Framing fits very well. I like it there's not too many colors in there. TFS!

Best regards,

This is a nice image Angela. It is a nice pattern with just enough variety of color and texture to make it interesting.
You might try using a polarizing filter on a shot like this to cut down on the reflective glare from the leaves.

Hello Angela,

Very nice details, you captured it very well


Dear Angela,
nice image. I like its simplicity, the concentration on structures, and the well handled reflections of sunlight.
Thank you! My best regards,
