Getting Close

This shot I took no more than 10 minutes ago reminds me of one of those top tips for photography - "If your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough." I was just taking a few shots around the pond I just setup in our backyard and noticed time and time again, if I tried to get the whole pond in the photo, well, the photo just sucked. Sure it documents what's there but there was no oomph to them. Then I started zooming in. The results were much better. I like how the reflected portion takes on an almost black & white look even though this is right out of the camera (Nikon D300).
