This is near the mouth of Cottonwood Creek, where it enters the Sacramento River, in northern California. A storm had gone through earlier in the day, and was clearing towards the end of the day. The sun coming out through the clouds was just shimmering on the water.
I exposed for the bright bits, so the shadows are very shadowy. I tried bringing out more detail in the shadows, but felt that didn’t add anything to the story, and in fact detracted from the graphical nature of the bright shapes. Any thoughts on that are appreciated, along with anything else that strikes you.
