Your Photo: Our Critique

Tom Ehlers submitted this image taken with a Canon D30, with an exposure of 1/160sec at f/7.1, ISO 100. Tom has created an abstract photo out of this waterway. The symmetry created by the reflection works to draw the viewer’s eye through the opening to the lighter background area. Good use of shapes and lines. The black and white adds to the abstract concept but appears a little on the dark side on my monitor. Overall, Tom did a good job photographing beyond the obvious.
