Photographer’s Notes
Orcas Island, Washington; a beautiful pond lies below a house in the woods. Fall is near. Lots of S's here so none of that DNMC stuff!

This scene is nice and has more potential than is captured here IMO. I say that because of the lighting. Appears to be midday or maybe it's just overcast, but there's nothing dynamic about the lighting. Seems a little flat.

The 'S' you've captured works well for the challenge, although it's not as strong a component to the photo as I think the challenge intended (to lead the viewer thru the image).

If this was cropped to only half, eliminating the upper half, and taken with some still water and reflections - maybe some early morning light with a little steam rising...??? Just a thought.

As is, I think the image is fairly strong to the theme, and I like that you didn't just find some literal 'S' to photograph. And as a photo it's fine, but in more of a snapshot sense rather than an artistic one.

Best of luck to you in the challenge.
