Waters Edge

Water's Edge

Not enough blur? f3.5 is wide open for this lens. Tempting as it was I refrained from enhancing the blur with post processing.

other sizes: small medium original

The softness of the image gives it a "painterly" look that's very pleasing. -dtallakson

Nice framing Doug with lines into the corners leading us in and out again. And the oof is appropriate for the image letting the essential hint of details in the trees play a part. -tv

This one looks great Doug. The way the wall and rocks lead us into the image is nice and it seems seems like such a pretty and peaceful day. Like the reflections too- nice work.

Thanks Debi and Rod. I am enjoying my day off and the snow stayed in the mountains again. -Doug

No worries here Doug as this works really well for the topic. Things don't have to be way oof to work, in fact if the sea wall was really blurred I think the rocks would grab our eyes & keep them there. This has a lovely sweep around the rocks & along the wall. You used your day off well mate.
