Open Space

I’ve been reading suggestions from pro photographers who suggest making images which contain “open” space. I did that here, at Philpott Lake in SW Virginia. The color of the clear, teal green water made a nice blend with the green, back-lit leaves above, and their reflection added some interest to the open space below. I added an adjustment layer to my original image to make it look more like a painting, but it was the composition itself that was my main goal.
