trans·for·ma·tion- a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance. - As the fall is waning I seek out a more artistic approach to my fall shooting. This was my favorite image taken this season. Its a single exposure shot at close range where I used a very high exposure compensation (+2) to almost blowout the background, maintaining slight detail of the lilly pads in the lake thats in the background with full detail of the branches and leaves of the main subject. Some times less is more !
