In Mr. Schoepfle’s Garden, May 2016—3
June 6, 2016
What looks like what might be a double exposure is the reflection of the sky and a sycamore tree overhanging the Back Pond at Schoepfle Garden. Underwater leaves of the past fall add to the mystery.
I love it – and I did think at first it was a double exposure. You handled it just right; it’s subtle enough that one is left gazing back and forth between the “sky” and water, and it feels like I’m looking up and then down.

Thank you, Lynn. Usually I don’t have everything in focus when I shoot like this. Don’t know why it worked this time.

Right, it’s the reflected branch or the water surface (or under it). Sometimes I do one of each, to see which I like better. Strange that both seem to be in focus here. Well, it’s good that there’s some mystery left, isn’t it?

Yeahhhh, mystery is nice, but I’d like to be able to replicate this focus thing. Was wondering if I had used an extreme depth of field, but when I checked, it wasI ƒ8. I usually shoot at ƒ13. I’ll make sure to try ƒ13 and ƒ8 in a similar situation next time to see if I can notice any difference.
