Upon Reflection

This series was shot while I was at Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers, Florida. When I went there I was hoping to get sunset type photos but the trees were blocking my view of the sun which I wasn’t used to because I had been shooting along the river.

With the light dropping and not getting sunsets I adapted and started to shoot the islands and their reflections on the water. It turned out to be one of the longer shoots I did with me walking around the circumference of the lake and the light dropping to almost dark. So I was shooting under constantly changing conditions.

Normally with edits like these I mask in various bits and pieces but with this many in the set I did straight edits and kept the images “pure” for lack of better words. Just curves adjustments and local adjustments using dodge and burn. Standard sharpening and called it a day.

Enjoy.

  1. Your photos are great. I do love the setting sun. The sky is just so pretty with lots of color. The reflections of the trees in the water are fun. It is the trees seeing how beautiful they are with their reflection in their mirror, the water. It was impossible to say which was my favorite because they all are beautiful reflecting the closing the day on the water. I kept copies. I enjoyed.
