Simply celebrating life
Oh that is so lovely. I actually imagined a slight breeze on my face when I looked at this photo.Thank you.
such a serene mood
Beautiful. Just what I needed today.
Ooh, I like that. Especially with the branch hanging over in the middle! :-)
again one of my favorite things in nature is Sunshine on rippling water
That is gorgeous. Beautiful!
David, I assume you chose to put the bridge and river in background and blur it. Did you do that as you shot it or did you photo hop it? Anyway, great effect! :)
Now I know what the Yarra is, this means something! lolI love photos like that. I like the way they are framed by the tree(s) and the movement of the water. Lovely shot.
It's so beautiful!
Looks like a great place to be!
Like the way you framed it with branches.
Beautiful silky grey water. Very nice capture!
David, sure wish I was there, sitting on a benck and relaxing, with a nice glass of red wine.haha.
I love that!!
"Serenity" comes to mind.Crazy Cath said you were asking a question about the most important thing in life but I don't see it. I agree with her though. To value and cherish our friends and loved ones, to take good care of our relationships with them.
Hi David the photograph is splendid, the first plan characterizes also the movement in the picture, marvellous nuances, and prospect!
Beautiful shot, I like how you framed it in naturally with the branches.
That is such a pretty peaceful picture!
That's beautiful. So peaceful.
Exquisite, David! I want to be there. Hope!
So beautiful and peaceful.
Very serene shot, beautifully captured, David.
You certainly take some of the nicest photographs David and this one is no exception. Have a great WW. :)
The river looks inviting for a quiet read under the tree in the evening :)Have a good week David!
What a great shot...is that traffic on the bridge or spectators? Happy WW.
Wow.. that's just beautiful!
Ohhhhhhhhh, David what a beautiful shot!
beautiful nature...Mine in here Thanks
it is peace and lovely....Will you visit my WW : My son on costume? Thanks.
In answer to your questions:Hi Lori,It was just around the time a football match ended, so there is traffic on the bridge - and pedestrians!!Hi The Teach,In answer to your question - I ``saw'' the picture in my mind and knew exactly how I wanted to frame it as I walked down the river bank. I shot it with a Pentax K100D and at the time I had my 300mm lens on the camera. The focal length of that shot would have been only about 150mm-200mm, from memory.I only shot one frame. And yes, I used the manual focus option as I always do. So the frame was deliberately composed with the branches in sharp focus and the river in soft focus.In answer to the last part of your question, I never enhance, crop or PhotoShop my images. However, I have no philosophical problems with photographers (amateur or professional) who do. Technology is there to be used in whatever manner the individual sees fit.
Very beautiful capture! i love the very nature place, a place where we can meditate. Happy WW!He's thinking aheadMissing this house
Love the silhouette!
Weird that you'd mention "Smoke on the Water." That song just got ranked as the best guitar riff of all time by some magazine or other. I tend to agree. Certainly the most recognizable.
This is an amazing shot David!
Oh, I could sit there and gaze at those silver ripples. Thank you for providing the next best thing. Actually, in some ways, an even better thing.
Almost the bridge of sighs!At least it did that for me...Thank you David!
David, I love the photo as always. It looks like such a peaceful and relaxing spot.I had a laugh today, and it involved you. Corey from Living and Living (who is an awesome photographer I might add) commented on my WW and said "...David will be proud." I instantly started laughing, and then wondering how the heck she reads my mind and knows that your opinions mean so much to me hehehe Anyway, in case your ears were burning, I thought I'd let you know why.
A very appealing, relaXing piX.
Every time I look at your photos, I think of how you don't process/change your photos. And I find that every time I take a photo now, I think of you and it is making me better. This photo is beautiful and despite the traffic and bridge, it is peaceful and calming.
