Duck water.
Dark water.
Ducks get their kicks on Dark water.
Dogs get their licks on Duck water...
[with apologies to Dr Seuss]
Rosalyn Sears: lol! Dr Seuss brings back memories. (:o)

Without the titel. Roz, I'd never have known this was water; it;s the unusual angle which makes it different! Nicely done.
Rosalyn Sears: Just trying to find something different. I seem to be stuck in my comfort zone with my photography. Glad you like it! (:o)
Beautiful abstract picture. Well done Roz!
Rosalyn Sears: Thanks, Richard. So pleased you like it. (:o)
That's really super...could be a book or CD cover...
Rosalyn Sears: Glad you like it, Dave. Just trying for something a bit different. (:o)
Love this one Roz!
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Brad. I am happy to hear that. I like abstracts, but I am just trying to develop an eye for possible subjects - they are not always so obvious to me. (:o)
Watrey grunge .... lovely . Maybe Manipulating and creating green watery grunge would be fun to do as well. richard
Rosalyn Sears: You like it? Lots of possibilities for playing with this one. (:o)

You did it again, Rozie, and I like it even better then yesterday's. Hope you'll continue in this direction for a bit longer, before you go back to birds and beasts. smile
Rosalyn Sears: Hi Viktor! I`m really pleased you like this. I guess I am just trying to ring the changes a bit. I do seem to get stuck in my `comfort zone`. I love abstracts, but I don`t always find it easy to recognise good subjects. I hope I will get an eye for it, if I look hard enough and practice enough. I think it also depends how you are taking photographs, too. For instance, if you are out to stretch your legs and take in some sights, then it tends to be `click` and move on. On the other hand, I spent an hour at the duck pond, and because I was in the same place for a while, I had more `thinking` time. It was fun looking at all the possibilities, and it was an exercise I will repeat. (:o)
Quality shot Roz smile
Rosalyn Sears: Thanks, Chris. I appreciate that comment. (:o)

Very nice abstract - my kind of shot smile I like the different greys and the circle help me in seeing what this is...
Rosalyn Sears: I am delighted that you like this one, Aksel. (:o)

Ya, the ripples set it up nicely.

Like the darkness. Very moody.
Rosalyn Sears: Thanks, Bruce - I am glad you like it. (:o)

Rosalyn Sears: Thanks, Sam. (:o)
Dark water, a wonderful title for a wonderful picture : A likey !!
Rosalyn Sears: Well I am so pleased you liked this one. (:o)
This is really abstract which is not usually my thing but this one I like. I find I want to touch it!
Rosalyn Sears: I love abstracts, Bill, but finding good subjects does not come naturally to me. I am pleased to hear that you liked this one. (:o)

This has become a "genre" for certain SC photographic shots, Roz. You're fitting into it just perfectly. smile
Rosalyn Sears: Just experimenting, Ginnie. Sometimes I feel rather stuck in my comfort zone. I was pleased with this one, and I enjoyed the challenge of finding a `different` shot. (:o)

Roz - I echo all those who have commented before me -- this is a wonderful composition!! A good lesson for all of us to use "fresh" eyes.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, martie. I enjoyed the exercise. (:o)

Impressive, love this one, very well spotted and the B&W is very well choosen here.
Rosalyn Sears: Believe it or not, this is not a black and white conversion. If you look to the top right, you will see a patch of blue. It just happened to be what the water was like, in the shade, under some trees. Glad you like it. (:o)
