Hey everyone! As promised several weeks ago (just over a month ago now, actually), here is the “other one”, the version of this picture without ripples.
To recap the story, I took this one (and the other one) in the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle. I was there to see if I could find any cool flowers to take pictures of, and I snagged these two as I was walking by. At the time (and even at the other time, later that night when I was looking through the pictures) I didn’t really think much of them, decided they weren’t really that interesting. But a few months later they caught my eye. Well, actually, the other one did, the one with the ripples. But that caused me to look more closely at this one too. I still think it’s a bit boring, but it’s got some elements that I like: I love the color, and I love the detail in the reflection of the tree. But I’m still not convinced about the picture as a whole. But, I promised I’d post it, so post it I did. You’re welcome.
