In principle it is generally accepted that midday light is to be avoided when doing photography. However, there are always exceptions. I got this photo because I was by the Patapso River at midday and the film was Velvia 50. The portion of the image was definitely overexposed, but that brought out reflections of the sky and the forest in the middle. I have bracketed a great deal and chose this frame for the overall tonality. The camera was the OM-4TBlack with the 100mm/2.8 lens.
