Blue Reed

By ellavr
I had a lyric from Nick Cave picked out, but thought that 'Blue Reed' suited it better!!

I like the blue of the reflection and the green and the light of the reeds.

I must have the settings on my camera wrong, cos all the mid tones are wrong, so a little PS levels and a crop for tension and here it is. Hope you like it!!! :>)

Thank you Mike, Merlin and Magda, always a pleasure to hear from you.

Tom, I saw this as well, and it looked great in PS so must be EPZ. What is wrong with my title??

Ah, the Design Consultant!

As mentioned above, the blue in that lovely variation of lit/shadowed green, makes for a really effective image. Did you use a flash to highlight the green or was there some other lighting?

Link works Smile

Thank you John.

Mark, I used the flash and it was a very sunny day, though this was in shade. I was trying to work the link thing out and was very excited to be able to do it eventually!!! :>0

Love the patterns and colours, Ella.

Have been away for 2 weeks, as you know, but am beginning to catch up. Will look through your PF and click as appropriate, but won't have time to comment on everything! So if you get phantom clicks, it's me!

I cleared a load of reeds out of my pond the other day, I knew I should have pushed the camera in amongst them. Nice capture, simple but effective, I like it.

Hello Ella,

Just been going back through some of your pics and noticed I had forgotten to click LOTS of them after my comments. Rest assured, this terrible over-sight has been rectified and you are now clicked into the recognition you deserve. Click (actually done it this time!) Tom.
