Revisited this little lake 3 times to get different perspectives on these beautiful color laden small lilies. The maple in the center and the other trunks attracted me to this image. I think it looks better viewed larger.
Specific Feedback Requested
Comp and processing. Does this lack a focal point for the eye? I am drawn to the center red then the trunks but interested in others opinions.
Is this a composite: No

My eye is drawn to the trunks initially, and then it drifts down to the bright patch of water in the LRC… With out the trunks, I don’t think this image works, but with the elements that I mentioned, I think it works reasonably well. The color palette is interesting , the hints of red and purple work well.
To my eye, this feels slightly crisp (over-sharpened), but just barely. It will be interesting to see if anyone else agrees, admittedly it’s subjective.
