About the Image(s)

This photo was taken at 7:20 am this morning 7/31/20 while on a morning walk . I stood smack in the middle of the Narrowsburg NY bridge which is over the Delaware River. The beautiful reflections with some mist in the background over the river were extra special today.
My camera is a Sony RX10iv and my settings were ISO 100, F7.1 , 1/160 sec

I cropped some of the water in front and adjusted the highlights and shadows in LR. I also removed the telephone wires crossing the river in PS.

Welcome, Gregory!

What a spectacular photo! I really love the how the sky and clouds are reflected on the water.

The only suggestion I would have is to maybe increase the contrast slightly to bring out a little more detail.

Other than that - kudos for a great photo!

What a great capture...and YESTERDAY!. A real lesson about keeping your camera with you. I love the serenity of the scene. So many lovely touches, the reflection, the mist, the leading lines. A touch of contrast, maybe. There is either mist or a bit of lens flare in the upper right corner. You might burn or clone it out. You should submit this to the Delaware River Commission for use in their PR or their calendars.   Posted: 08/01/2020 15:35:44

Thank you for your constructive comments. I was thinking of putting this one in a local contest and now I will. I agree the contrast needs to be increased . PS my house and property are on the PA ( left side ) in the photo. We live right next to the bridge and you can see our picnic table .

Lovely. The rock outcroppings on each side frame the far side so well, leading you right to the beautiful greens of the trees. The reflection is stunning, and really adds value. Well done!   Posted: 08/02/2020 15:11:41

What a beautiful image Kathleen! I love the soft colours, the detail of the outcrop, but my favorite part of the image is the oval shaped reflection of the dark hill in the background. The reflections of the trees within the oval is just perfect.
PS: I am very envious, the location of your home is just amazing.   Posted: 08/08/2020 01:42:58
