The sharp insect surrounded by its ripple, then the soft undulating water, and finally the black background make a great shape and color composition. A simple and strong result.

Remember that K2s cameras don't float. Thanks.

Very nice. To quote Coleridge's Ancient Mariner: "Alone, alone, all, all alone, Alone on a wide wide sea!"

Well captured indeed, they walk slowly... so they constantly check if anything below is gonna eat them.

How inspiring! I own the same lens. How far away were you?
