Despair & Deception, love's ugly little twins....(nick cave)

its been raining since yesterday :)

i set out to take some photos today and as i drove past these trees, i saw an opportunity :)

it was the character of these 'winter ridden' trees and their reflection that appealed to me :)

composing this shot was fairly easy... i had no choice but to maintain a harmony between the trees and the reflection so produced in the puddle :)

though i cropped the top and bottom during post processing, excluding a bunch of powerlines, they appeared distracting to me, and most importantly, my main subject were the two trees and their reflection :) nothing else :)

for a change, i shot it in TIFF and NOT in RAW this time, the TIFF file was rendered beautifully with lots of detail and ISO 400 produced a subtle grain :)

thanks for viewing, let's see what you think of this one :)

    As I often say; the title is very important piece to the photograph itself. I connect with both image and the title; it makes me feel. Do you know what I mean? I usually make funny displays with witty titles, but when something makes me feel...those words are there for a reason....
