I want to download this, blow it up, print it out, and have a poster of it in front of me with to meditate. I would add background music of a water droplets and for me, instant calm. Staring into that stick at the bottom and the small “eddies” around it. Repeat after me: zone, zone, zone. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

There’s an Oriental side of the artist in you that comes out when you share these meditational visions. Love it when this happens!

This image describes the soft focus of reverie wonderfully.

Thank you very much, Karen.
I love the way you’ve captured the surface tension perfectly, which might look a lot easier to do than it really is. Excellent picture!

Thank you, Allen. You have described beautifully what I sought to capture here: thank you for your words and compliment.

There’s a real wonderful tenderness, and respect for your subject in this shot that says a lot about your approach to the world I think.

Fascinating to look at. All the elements have a sinking in feeling.

Thank you so much for your comment. Yes, there is a sinking-in feeling to this image. I love how you put that!

This is so beautiful Melanie.. I love the colours and water tension but I am distracted by the leaf? reflection at the top left and I confess I would have PS it out or cropped above the 1st leaf to make it square..

Interesting suggestion, Helen. For me the leaf contributes to the image, but I can see how it could also be distracting. I’m interested to try cropping it out to see how it changes the image. I don’t have PS, but I can definitely do the crop. Thanks for the idea! I’m always grateful for feedback like that.

I love this composition. It is a little different, but for me it works! I also like the use of surface tension to bring depth and interest to the image. Nice job Melanie!
