Curly whirly

f4; 1/200; ISO 160

I was entranced by these curly whirly reflections. Evidently, eddies from wind across the surface coupled with water bird movements had corkscrewed the branches and twigs poised above the lake. Adding a touch of high contrast mono and they look like ink drawings.

The angle of view could not be altered for the shot. I did try cropping out the bankside plants but it did not work. I was right to include them in the frame for anchorage. But if only I had focused more on defocusing that small intrusive branchlet which spoils the view significantly for me. Either that or I should carry a pair of secateurs!

Casting a critical eye on those photos that almost passed muster and paying attention to technicalities. One for the ‘Second Best Sunday’
