Day 5: Circular

This is a zoom and crop of the sun and docks reflected in a circular wave created by a rock hitting the water. The only atypical post- processing was noise reduction (I had to use a high ISO to get the shutter speed fast enough to freeze the water) and setting the black point much lower than is I would normally set it. I set up the shot hoping for a reflection of droplets, instead I got the cool reflection of the sun and docks. A pleasant surprise. I blew the focus though. I focused on the surface of the water and should have focused a little closer to the camera. Oh well.
