Japanese Garden, Fort Worth, Texas. This photo was taken from a small bridge that crosses the pond. I sat my camera down on the bridge and used a cable release to capture the photo.

Let me know you comments.

    This rocks, Todd. The framing of the pond is perfect!
    (I had no idea there was a Japanese tea garden in Ft. Worth. I'm more than pleasantly surprised.)

    Excellent work Todd! I love the mirror image! The colors are spectacular and the teahouse makes the perfect focal point. Well done!

    hey Todd it's a nice shot... but i'd have loved to see some head-room on top of the hut and be able to include the lovely trees in the frame... i might have even considered ignoring the reflection which is kinda very flat here... nonetheless beautiful capture! :)

    Ernest M. Aquilio said (5 Dec 2008):

    Very serene. Nice work. Overall the composition is good, you made good use of capturing the reflections in the water. Something you can't control, but more dramatic lighting would have made the scene golden.
