A very minimal composition with wonderful beauty in the
perfect reflections of the shore line and becoming deep blue sky. If you
look closely you will see two fish have just jumped out of the water
in the front center.
This was taken in a large cattle pasture very early in the morning looking
towards the Southwest. Within seconds the breeze arrived along the cattle
for their morning water and the scene was gone.
Simply Beautiful - Central Nebraska, USA.
Thanks to everyone for looking in.

A beautiful effect graphic with this photo riche in symetry: the symetry between the blue of the sky and the blue of the water, the symetry between the vegetation and the reflections in the water. A ggod idea, a beautiful realisation.
Have a good evening,

You play excellent with light and shadows, also the reflections are splendid.
You did very fine the long line of the green vegetation, this care for a nice perspective.
Very well done, TFS.

Wonderful skylight & tree reflections, in the still waters, with good sharpness, color & symmetry. Tfs!

Perfect calm still reflection which can only be found in early morning scene. A nice peaceful scene.
Sharing with you this information I read from a professional photographer's book - when shooting reflection, composition of half and symmetry may depart from rule of thirds.

What a beautiful environment, so calm and peaceful, the water so still like a mirror, reflecting the tree line so weel you can almost flip this upside down and still be okay. Love the very natural setting, very simple and uncomplicated composition. It evoke sense of peace and tranquility. Techincally all is just fine. Beautiful but natural color and light. Simply lovely.

évidemment les reflets sont le sujet de cette photo.
Mais....je dois avouer qu'elle manque d'un point qui accroche le regard, d'un centre d'intérêt, et cela est souvent sanctionné au niveau des critiques.

I still can see no autumn colours here but I guess they will appear in a week or two!
However the mood is undoubtedly late summer, with the crisp air, bright light and stunning colours...
A classic composition, showing the scene well!

Beautiful symmetry. This brings mathematical fractals to my mind. Especially those narrow branches reaching higher. Simple scene, but still very interesting.
