Why didn't I use this version of the picture to lake?
- We decided to crop the image to remove the ducks and horse with it's head up since you would normally expect movement from these. The horse with it's head down could be asleep.
- At the right we cropped the image to remove the stream where it passed the rocks - impossible to lake at the time.
- The image was darkened a little since we felt it made the effect better and also made the geese less obvious (they should be moving).
- We flipped the image because we wanted the water to flow from left to right
it just seemed better that way.
Want a copy? You can occasionally find one on ebay; expect to spend $500+;
failing that you can buy it in 1000
