It Rained!

By TyChee    
This is the object seen in yesterday's upload which is now starting to return to it's under water hiding place. It has been pretty dry around here until a few days ago when we finally got a good soaking rainfall.
This thing is usually completely under water, but I caught a look of it yesterday at an interesting level of submersion.

This is my first upload from my new D80. I'm starting to really like it after a few growing pains. Some of my uploads in the near future will probably be of wildly varied subjects because I have been shooting everything in site trying to get used to the new camera.


Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments and support.

I go for 1 myself. I like the abstract frrl, though the leaf makes the shot.
I've read your 'rambling' with interest. I think the D50 needs to be kept, perhaps as an everyday camera.
Best of luck,

Version 2 for me, by a whisker. The colour is super in 1, but there's a certain flatness to the water, it looks more like a painted surface. I agree with Matt, 2 gives it a sense of depth.
Love that leaf, by the way.

I like these mouseovers. Smile
I like version 2 better, it makes the photo sharper and gives more contrast. I'm really attracted to sharp contrasts. I haven't read the comments yet, I'll probably be in the minority.
I like that one maple leaf floating in there by itself.
There's one reflection that has the shape of a house gable, just wondering if that's what it is.

I'm with the Version 2 fans but, as Moira says, just by a whisker, been a great series Ty!
Good luck with the new camera, looks promising judging by this!
