The Reflection

Reflection Pool, Bloedel Reserve
Reflection Pool, Bloedel Reserve

This pool is at Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island. There wasn’t much of a breeze today as we walked by and the water was very calm. I had to bump up the ISO a little to keep the aperture at f/8 and still be able to hand hold.

After conversion to Black and White, I was drawn into the reflection of the trees. The longer I looked into the reflection, the more I wanted that to be the primary subject of the image. To do that, I rotated the image 180 degrees. It made a huge difference and created a visual puzzle that is slightly unsettling and draws the eye.

Camera: Nikon D810
Lens: Zeiss Milvus 50mm
ISO: 400   1/60 sec   f/8
