We were out on the Rideau Canal today; I took, I think, 84 shots in total. I got a couple of good ones, of which more later, but this one is amusing. We were heading home up the Rideau River, about 4:pm, and going fairly fast. I had the camera set on auto, no flash, and I had only one instant to get this shot.
Here is what I got.
I've played with the shot, because I love the V of ripples. Here's my best edit.
The thoughts I still have about it are these: should I crop out the overexposed shoreline; should I play with the contrast; and, last but not least, should I just throw the dern thing out.
This is a cropped edit I received from Anvilcloud, who is one humdinger of a photo editor. He advises darkening the white reflections, but even without that the improvement is great. As he has revised it, I think it's a save. Thanks, AC!
