You have no excuse....

There is a beautiful landscape shot to be found any place. This one is simply a small pond in a city park. It is printed on 20x30 and hanging in our living room. Also overlooked by almost all is the fact that landscapes do not have to be sweeping vistas...look down at the ground. Patterns of leaves, cracks in the dry clay, or cement, on the beach all those tiny shells and jetsum can become a horizonless landscape. It's the beauty of the composition that is the art, not the subject.

Overall, I do like this shot.
My only negative is that the blown highlights are a bit distracting.

I must admit that the composition of this image, rather than being an assist to my viewing of the whole, leaves me a bit...unsettled....and distracted by the density of fine, interlacing detail in the left 2/3 of the upper 2/3 of the image.

i find that detail-dense region, that, at first glance, struck me as reminiscent of a distantly viewed Jackson Pollock painting, to been a major factor in initial impact..and not a positive one. for, in my case, it functiones as a continual eye trap" as i attempt to appreciate the image as a whole.

I do appreciate the colors and the hint of possibly an approach to a high-key interpretation of the scene, and I am not bothered by the scattered blown highlights. In the general tonal scheme they are not, to my eye, offensive.in the least.

It is an interesting image, but not one I personally find "compelling".

And remember, this is but one guy's opinion.
