Gibbs Gardens Waterlily and Frog

Gibbs Gardens Waterlily and Frog.
I’ll be the first to admit when something happens purely by accident, even if it is a happy accident. When I was making this image I never saw the frog. It was during the processing of the image that those eyes appeared. I’m just happy that I had not unknowingly cropped half of the face out of the image.
I made the trip down to Gibbs Gardens yesterday after seeing all of the beautiful images friends have been posting from there of the waterlily. With the rain the night before and overcast that morning I felt it was the perfect time to go. I packed up the gear, making sure to take a Circular Polarizer to reduce glare on the foliage. I actually did a video while I was down there demonstrating the difference a CPL makes, and a short lesson on composition. Here is the link to that video if you would like to watch, let me know what you think. Please subscribe to my videos if you could.
