In Mr. Schoepfle’s Garden, May 2016—3


June 6, 2016

What looks like what might be a double exposure is the reflection of the sky and a sycamore tree overhanging the Back Pond at Schoepfle Garden. Underwater leaves of the past fall add to the mystery.

  1. I love it – and I did think at first it was a double exposure. You handled it just right; it’s subtle enough that one is left gazing back and forth between the “sky” and water, and it feels like I’m looking up and then down.

    • Thank you, Lynn. Usually I don’t have everything in focus when I shoot like this. Don’t know why it worked this time.

      • Right, it’s the reflected branch or the water surface (or under it). Sometimes I do one of each, to see which I like better. Strange that both seem to be in focus here. Well, it’s good that there’s some mystery left, isn’t it?

        • Yeahhhh, mystery is nice, but I’d like to be able to replicate this focus thing. Was wondering if I had used an extreme depth of field, but when I checked, it wasI ƒ8. I usually shoot at ƒ13. I’ll make sure to try ƒ13 and ƒ8 in a similar situation next time to see if I can notice any difference.
