Sometimes I form emotional bonds with my subjects which tends to bias my opinion as to what is good and what is not, but in the case of this photo I'm pretty sure I have a winner here...
Oh shucks -- it was an easy photo to take -- all I had to do was to be there and snap the shutter. Nevertheless, I think I'll give myself ten-points and a gold-star. Hope you like it too...
Oh, there is one little secret for this type of photo -- the stream must be in shade so it can act as a mirror for the surrounding illuminated vegetation. At my favorite spot on the Lagunitas Creek (100 yards upstream of the terminus of Devil's Creek) the best time to find the illumination just right is usually between nine and ten o'clock on a bright and sunny day. See you there...
