Normally I would try to exclude those reflection photos with a real-looking object as a water reflection abstract photo, but this photo has a visible leaf on the water surface. Since I was exposing for the reflection, and not the leaf, the leaf was overexposed and the way it was captured makes it look like a hand. What makes this photograph even more interesting is that the bottom area where several extensions or tentacles are seen against a white area. The white area is really the overexposed blue reflected from the sky. This departure from blue makes the image more abstract and brings out the tentacles. The camera was the OM-4TiBlack with the 180mm/2.8 and 1.4x teleconverter and the film was Fujichrome Professional Provia 100F (RDPIII).
