  1. This image is delightful Lesley. You captured the light (and shadows) perfectly, not too dark at all. I like human touch with the reflections of the two women in the window.

    Thanks for your visit and comments. Low Tide on the Delaware is light because it was a bright sunny day with very strong sunshine. But, there are still some very deep shadows in the image. The decision to print light or dark is an aesthetic one. I rely on my intuition and sometimes it’s right. LOL

  2. I have to repeat what awarewriter has written! Really superb composition , Lesley! And, I too, love the human touch! Stunning! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!


  3. Stunning reflections!

  4. That is a magical place to capture reflection : well done !

  5. they polish the glass well to give you a perfect reflection.

  6. What I like about this library is that it’s modern, but not “space agey”, if you know what I mean; it still fits the environment… as perfectly seen in the reflection.

  7. It’s almost as good as a mirror. Keep on clicking.

  8. Plenty of reflections ther–almost like the real thing. Mickie 🙂
