[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sometimes in life what we reflect to others is not what we see in ourselves, what is the real you?
What you feel inside or what we reflect onto others? In most situations we get back what we give, sometimes you will find someone in your life so self absorbed that no matter what you give, you will get back nothing or what you get back is so mean and hurtful, you would wish for nothing.
At those times we have to look deeply into ourselves, our reflection and wonder why we are with a person who lives so negatively. You can choose to make a change and refuse the negativity that you are receiving. Look deep.... what do you see.... do you like your reflection? Is it time for a change...

PP I cropped some at the top of the shot to get rid of the guardrail of the road and to show just a smidgen of the shore and reflection of the trees, resized for TL.

Good effect lake return Dayna. Interesting motive. Well done. Tfs. Stev

Hello Dayana!!
I like this delicate colours in this photo!!
Great capture!!
Interesting work!!

Hi dayna:
Great notes and presentation, I love the reflections in the water, and great presentation!

This is fun. I like it. An alternative take might be to correct for perspective in PS, and then flip the canvas 180 degrees.

Hi Dayna,
... I'm wondering... and sincerely I don't like what I see inside me. It's time for a change... Dayna your note is so full of feelings in it, so meaningful. It's one of the best note seen on TL. The photo is fitting excellent with it. You have a soul for "sensitivity". I'm really impressed by this photo and note. Well done! Congrats and TFS!

Kindly regards,

Hello Dayna, very nice!I like both the photo and the note.Congrats!

Hi Dayna, good shot of the reflections. I might have even cropped off all the land at the top and the different tree on the left, but it still looks good. I like the shimmering look of teh greenery in the water,
Well done

I really like the tone of your picture and the reflection, not just in the picture but also in your notes.
I agree with ioana tm re your note.
Like your POV and that the capture is only of the reflection,nice details in the reflection.

Hello Dayna

A lovely shot of reflections .The composition is very good.Nice crisp sharp details.TFS


Excellent capture. Excellent effect doen by the water

I love that one very much!
Terrific refects. (like "pastels")
And the sun just enough "ébouissant"
Tfs Dayna,

Hi Dayna,
A well spotted reflection.
I wonder though if the composition also consisted of the trees themselves along with the reflection how this would have looked?
