I keep looking at this picture and find it a bit disorienting but ultimately striking. I like it quite a bit. I suspect that it would make a very good large print where you could see all the detail. Good work.

Thanks for the comments. This is a very spooky location, only a couple of hundred metres from suburban streets and a primary school, but you would swear you were on another planet. The light is strongly filtered through the trees, but there are also lots of reflections off the water, so it's often difficult to know exactly what the light is doing.

Even better than the one with ducks. I had to smile because your comment above about this swamp looking like another planet, is just what I had written on the other post! Brilliant location, and a fantastic photograph.

This shot is definitely better then the painted ducks. The foggy background emphasizes the swamp atmosphere.

 

I guess it's difficult to shoot a swamp, because the light has multiple reflections from both the water surface and the mist in the air.

You're definitely getting to know that swamp Paul and, with the surreal lighting, developing something of a unique style it must be said.

Incredible to find it is so close to civilisation, yet I bet many have passed it by without much thought for its beauty. Just pleased you didn't. Well done.

Thanks for you comments on my "Forrest for the Trees" picture, and even more thanks for the link to this folder! These are all incredible! When I saw this one in particular I was just dumbstruck with awe. It's absolutely amazing!! I'm really just learning how to take pictures.. I know mine leave a lot to be desired still. Mostly I'm trying to learn composition - and maybe one day I'll actually try to take a photography class and "really" take pictures. Your's are totally inspiring.

This is a fine fine shot (then why hadn't I said so before?), improved by the lack of ducks, perfectly still water, a touch of frost (would I be right in saying frost?) and Paul Fisher's brush. Well done!

Paul,

 

Nice Shot! Have you looked at this in B&W? I pulled it into photoshop, converted it to grayscale and brought the brightness down to about -66 and it looks like a forest from those cheap spooky kids horror books I used to read! Thanks for sharing this photo! Out of curiosity what time of day was this photo taken? It looks sort of misty in background.
