Inspired by Alan's and other people's comments yesterday... This is another frame, cropped to reduce the weight of overhanging foliage while retaining the reflection of the fence that runs through the scene.
Andrew (ChiliMan) said that yesterday's reminded him of an old, badly tuned TV. In keeping with that idea, black & white will appear some time in the future.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Everything suddenly becomes clearer, more lucid. I much prefer this, it makes yesterday's seem unresolved.
I was thinking about that image last night, after I sobered up, and it occurred to me that it made very good sense when viewed as a thumbnail...the importance of the fence came over particularly strongly... but viewed at full size it felt confusing to me. The wealth of detail, the wobbly reflections, the out of focus upper portion... all those things reminded me of those disruptive patterns on military camouflage clothing. It wasn't easy to look at.
This, for me, is a distillation.

Alan

It's the cold light of morning... Wink
I had previously discounted this frame, but I cropped a little to lighten the top and also to get rid of lighter trunks and foliage on the left. That has left a more even effect, and I think it also conveys the leaves at the top of the trunks better. Plus I do like those twists in the fence...
Thanks for steering me in the right direction, Alan.

Yes,I can see the badly tuned TV Moira.
And I recall our black and white telly where we had to put 50p in the slot to watch it.
At least it is ''freeview'' on this site !!

Thanks everyone, It's interesting to see reactions. I do prefer this one but it's on a much lower approval % rating than yesterday's - I just love statistics.

Quote: now try the crop from the bottom.....it will appear less grounded.

Joline, I have been experimenting with this but I have to say that it doesn't work for me. I want images to look grounded, with something as fleeting insubstantial as a reflection, I want that illusion of a place to stand in the frame. Plus without the reflected riverbank it becomes top-heavy for me.

Definitely stronger and very nicely balanced with the diagonal light between the darks. 'Tales from the Riverbank' to keep the TV analogy going.

This is clearer and better perhaps, but I liked those mysterious ellipse shaped yellow stains in the previous crop, Moira.
