These cattails grew at the edge of a human-made pond in the mountains of northern Virginia, USA, where I spent the weekend.
*****THANK YOU FOR VISITING ANITA'S PHOTOBLOG!*****
I have been INTERVIEWED three times by photo-buddies:

Great colors and the silhouette of the cat tails is beautiful. The only thing for me that is a little distracting is the light post in the background. I wonder if you could have cropped the image to only show the reflections and so leave that out.

@Chris: Chris: Your comment is extremely helpful. Thanks! I cloned out the street light. I agree, it was really distracting. What do you do you think of the current photo? I tried cropping, but didn't like it as much.
Again--thanks for your constructive critique.

I love the sky colors reflected in the water and the near silhouetted cattails. Very well done.

I like the image a lot better with the light post cloned out (although it is visible in the reflection!). It is a very peaceful image

@Chris: Clearly not my day. The reflection is now cloned. :-)
I am sorry to put you through all that! I know I may see things that other people don't and that others will see things that I don't in my own photos - hopefully we all get a little better at doing this!!

@Chris: No apologies needed. You improved my image.
A wonderful composition. I like the mixture of fore- and background elements and the overall blue hue that holds it together. Lovely.

@Kerri: I'm glad you like it. :-)
Nice one. When I opned it up only the top half appeared on screen and to my mind made a better picture.

I think this photo suffers from two centers of interest, so the eye doesn't know where to settle.

Sorry to have missed the excitement over the pole. I see your point about the competing centers of attention. But, this photo conveyed a powerful sense of tranquility that transcends those compositional issues.
