This was a shot taken in my backyard, down at the pond during October 2010. Star filter caught the sun's beautiful reflection between the cattails and other growth of our pond.If you look at the cattails and look around this entire composition,especially at a 16x20 print size,the photo takes on the look of a painting. You really have to examine the photo to see if it is a picture or a painting. NO PHOTOSHOP OR SPECIAL PICTURE PROCESSING WAS USED. It is a straight up photo.
