[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photo of the main lake at Pukekura Park in New Plymouth. I took this photo in the early evening as the light was starting to fail but what appealed to me most was the almost symmetry of the tree line and the reflection.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Ralph!

Galileo loved symmetry too, and they say that great minds think a like, so you must have a great mind. :) Definitely a great eye for photography.

This is a very nice photo Ralph. The "V" shape reflection with the center vanishing point is eye-catching. I think this would also make a nice painting. I like to give photos a painted look.

Were you in a boat or on a bridge?

Congratulations on this nice capture!

I hope you have a good week!

Hi Ralph

Thats a beautiful capture no doubt, composition is very effective.
The reflection is beautiful!

I'd recommend u using a polarizer which will give u the beautiful sky aswell


And now ... an almost total-lack of tone mapping in a shot that could well benefit from it?

I do like the composition and the simple observation of the reflections on that water, I do think some post treatment to lift the shadows and make the reflection-lines more visible might help.

Cool shot overall!
