The differences in color and texture are beautiful. I love how the wood grain contrasts so different from the water. The water actually does a great job of breaking up everything, it works as a buffer. The water works to break up the wood textures from the wood and the trees in the background. I love the colors in the water from the leafs they add a nice amount of depth to the photo.
Technical question though, is this an HDR photo? The dynamic range is stunning. If not this is still just beautiful
On a personal note, this is the kind of place where I could sit, relax and unwind everyday of the year. Beautiful photo.
