I took this several weeks ago; it is from the same set as the other park shots. I don't know how well I like it, but I've had several people tell me I should post it, and since I don't have anything spectactular to post at the moment, here it is.

Oh yes, and I almost forgot: I added two wallpapers. The jet trails/blue sky makes a great Mac wallpaper. :)

I love the idea to put the tree in the foreground...... great item, and it makes the light look so great.

I think its cool how the leaves get darker as you move up and the water gets darker as you go down, leaving a bright area in the middle on the horizon. Very nice.

I think it's the leaves that draws attention here. The light is hitting them just right. Looks like a nice shady spot to look out over the water.

Weeping willow and water? Relaxing. It makes me want to dolly-day-dream.

Looking at this picture makes me wish I could grap ahold of that branch and swing into the water... I absolutely the love the ripples in the water and the way the light captures the leaves on the tree... very nice... it also makes a nice contrast... you have the warmth by the light in the tree... and then the coolness effect of the water... very well done!

Exposure: -2/3? Was it too bright when you take this shot? Relax...
