I have no idea what the name of this lake is. In fact, I had just found it on a this visit to Brookside Gardens. I just took a wander around with my Sony RX10 and started to take some photos.
I really liked the water with the weird holes and the reflections of the trees flowing into the real trees. If you blow it up to full size you can see a guy fishing on the water drain area. Even though the image was in late fall the sun was out and giving some nice light. The interesting part of this is that I was standing in a quick mud sinking quickly. I got to the point there I had to almost lost my hiking boot because I had sank that deep. Luckily pulled it out and then proceeded to just dunk the boot in water to get the mud off.
Editing wise nothing fancy. Typical adjustments. Just camera defaults. A few gradients then into Photoshop. From there I do my curve adjustment and then on to local dodging and burning.
