I shot an image the other day of wildflowers submerged in floodwaters. It is one of those images I can’t decide whether I like or not.

At times I look at it and see an oddly surreal quality that I really like. At other times I just see a mess.

The lines on the right are reflections from a power line above. I tried to get them out of the frame but could not do so, so I tried to use them as a leading line pointing to the brightest part of the image. They still bother me, yet I kind of like them, too.

I am so confused. . . . Am I losing it?

Does anyone out there like this image?
