I like the crossing lines that brings on the only red point

Another place I know well. The colours are simply glorious in this and coupled with your perfect compo and square presentation make for an excellent shot.

Being calm and contemplative. Just the opposite of being stressed.

I have been enjoying your “spring leaves” series very much. You get across the feeling of contemplation of this beautiful subject – one feels the quiet observation – it is implied in every one of your images. I love Japanese Maples and I have 6 around my home. I don’t have room to plant anymore :}. I love the lace leaf ones most. But my yard is no match for the settings you show us. The maples in your images have the framework necessary to show them to best effect.

Such a serene scene, and lovely reflection. You are really the master of composition!

I really like the way Japanese architecture looks like! This beautiful house looks great near these great trees and their reflections!

Great reflection. Why didn't you use the regular 3:2 or 4:3 ratio to extend the scenery more? Was there something you were trying to crop out? A beautiful and zenful shot nonetheless.

@Howard F.: Thanks for the thoughts. No, there wasn't anything to crop except a lot of water at the bottom and sky at the top. I tried the original photo first, but I just liked the way that this square format concentrated the feeling and sharpened the composition. I've begun to really enjoy the 1:1 ratio for what it can do compositionally.
