Hello Roman,

This is a very effective photo. You've chosen a symmetric vantage point to feature precisely that aspect of the scene. It is symmetric! By the same token, there is just enough symmetry-breaking in the driftwood to make the photo more interesting. Moreover, the slow shutter speed creates a vapor-like quality in the water. Recently, I took a photo of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, Fallingwater. Tell me whether you think it should have been photographed with a slow or fast shutter speed. I've had both opinions.

Warm regards,

Smile To batalay: Thanks ...

Hello Bulent,

thanks for your comment. I am deeply flattered that you like the image.

Referring to your question: I'm an absolute fan of slow shutter speed, as long as it is possible. Sometimes there is just too much light for 2 seconds of shutter speed, or I have the wrong settings. Had some problems, when the sky is too bright. The forest as in your "Fallingwater" image and in mine darkens the light enough.

BTW: When I checked your profile I saw you have some 30.000 points. That's is so much, it is kind of demotivating :-) ... I have just a dozen points so far.
It takes a lifetime to achieve that.
You must shoot only marvelleous pics. Congratulations for that!

Best regards from Munich,
