Challenge: Image without Subject (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro DX
Location: Shark Valley, Everglades, Florida
Date: Aug 27, 2006
Aperture: f/10
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/100
Galleries: Nature, Water
Date Uploaded: Aug 27, 2006

How do you take a picture without a subject? Couldn't anything in the final image be considered a subject?

Taken out in the Everglades from an airboat. The water was completely still a short while after the airboat stopped because the wind was not blowing. I used a circular polarizer sort of in reverse to bring out the clouds in the reflection.

This is beyond excellent. Lots of arcs and lines and yep, the blue/green/white really pops. Congrats on your top ten!

one of my favorites this challenge - nice blend of several elements so that none becomes the main subject

Very cool photo, the reflection is immaculate and it must've taken lots of skill to set up the angle to get the whole clear reflection in.
