“Impressionistic Reflections”

Been kind of slow around here lately , really bad fall this year no colors, now it is so blasted cold in November I don’t even want to go outside.  At least I am not coaching basketball this year, for the first time in fifteen years, so I really don’t have an excuse for not getting any work done….Rightttt!!!

So I have been working some images I did get earlier this fall, and this is one of them, a shot of the reflections and only the reflections of a group of trees in a creek. I was trying to create one of those impressionistic images I have been seeing on the net the last few weeks, hopefully this comes close to what I was after.  I kinda like the effect but I am not to sure about the color, I wish I could have got some vivid fall colors in this but it wasn’t meant to be this year.

I guess I am going to have to make some visits to the florist so I can start shooting again and get the old creative juices flowing, thanks for stopping by and having a look !!

  1. I always like shooting reflections too, Bernie. There are some interesting colors here, especially the very subtle ones at the right top!

  5. Looks good Bernie. I’m sure you are going through a major transition without the basketball. Filling a void that large can be a challenge. But you can do it. I’m sure you can do it.

    Photography can help you do it. It’s going to be around long after basketball is a distant memory.

  11. Great shot Bernie. One of the best I’ve seen in this genre.

    I’m surprised that you guys had no color this year.

  12. I love impressionist shots like this – well done.
    Enjoy your Thanksgiving, Bernie.
    When the snow flies, there will be plenty of new scenes to get. A mixed blessing there, for sure…

  13. Don’t feel bad about not getting out Bernie, same here. Didn’t shoot much fall color at all, and before I knew it, it was below freezing. Crazy midwest weather!

  14. I love the cool tones. I’ve always enjoyed shooting reflections, myself. Sometimes I flip them upside down, which makes for quite a surreal scene!

  15. Nice composition Bernie. A man could daydream all day looking into water or watching clouds.

    Colors were better here than expected but not great.

  16. It works for me. You might try saturating the magenta a little bit in the lower right. But, it is a “wall hanger” just the way it is. Nice work!

    Too bad your color was not up to par this year. I have heard others say the same thing in various parts of the country. Hopefully, next year will be better for everyone!

  18. Bernie-
    I would love to post a link to each of your photo updates on Southern Indiana Times so that people can follow your blog. I have visited your blog often for the past couple of years and would love to send other people to see your wonderful pictures.
