Beautiful reflections on the pond and the tones are lovely... I can tell it is late afternoon light. I might crop out the two ducks in the foreground and leave the silhouetted top duck swimming into the frame. Thanks for sharing your peaceful moment with us!

Thanks Tess, for noticing this little shot. This is one that I was going to dump, but inspired by riff's "Mist on Torch Lake" I decided to give it one more look. The two images have some similarities. So I went into Topaz and just played with the "I Feel Lucky" button until I got a result that looked promising and then went from there. I didn't even think about cropping, but I'll try your suggestion.

Busted. :-) And I have more. I thought I was done, but as I now go through the 3500 or so pictures making keep-delete decisions, I find that I'm still playing with images I had ignored until now.

Cool in several ways! I'm glad you did because that's blood brilliant.

Here's my crop, hope you don't mind. : I liked the single image with the ducks on the left = horizontal flip.
