|Finally ran across this tree island on the Loch Raven Reservoir when looking for a good landscape shot. Then had to wait for the right night. Didn't want a clear sky, some nights were raining. Finally went out Monday about 30 minutes after sunset and I think this turned out well. At first I thought the trees were the subject, but after editing, I realized the clouds are really important to the image. The clouds take your eyes directly to the tree, which helps your eyes transition down to the blurry water.
Cloned out a few minor imperfections (a few rain drops on the lens, duck shadows, lights in the distance, plane flying over). Crop, level, curves, brightness, resize, sharpen, denoise.
Looking forward to seeing how it does in the voting!
