Re: Backyard pond

They are nice images, with great lighting... but I sort of feel they lack a real subject. Perhaps if a child was playing near the water?

Also, you can try getting in really close and down low, for some interesting angles. The point is to find an unsual way to photograph it, which will undoubtly stimulate the viewers attention. Most people view ponds from above... but not many view them from down low...

Thanks for the comments! For a chold to be playing near the water they'd have to be IN the water (small ponds) but I agree, something else interesting in them would help. I think I was going more for lighting than anything with these.

The angles were about as low as I could get without laying down on the grass (I think it was raining that evening). Live view and an articulating LCD would be nice




Perhaps stepping back and making the waterfall the "feature" instead of trying to find a feature *in* the waterfall?

I like that last one. Might even pass on as a real waterfall, were it not for the fence in the background. Also, the wider angle of view I think is better on this one.

P.S. Looks like a very nice nature backyard!
