The image was taken on a tripod with a remote shutter and ND filter. Three exposures were combined into one HDR image. I was attempting to bring out the flow from light to dark and to show how the sun was slowly turning a wintry area into spring.
One challenge was in the placement of the tripod. I had originally placed the tripod on the wooden walkway. However I soon realized that my colleagues who were walking my way where shaking the tripod ever so slightly. So I placed the tripod into the water just beneath the walkway.
One thing I would have changed would have been the orientation of the camera. I think a portrait orientation would have worked better. I would have captured the part of the sky you see reflected in the water. However, my 18mm (APS-C) was not wide enough to include the snow on the ground in the trees to the right of the water.
