There is nothing extraordinary about this image I simply found the reflection of the bridge and the ripples of the rower’s oars very serene. I like the simplicity of the rower and his boat gliding along the river in the early morning light. I was using my 18-200 mm Nikkor lens that I had dropped a few days earlier which accounts for the lack of sharpness in the image. While I normally would reject an image that was as soft as this one I find that I like the impressionistic feel that the softness imparts.

I processed it in Aperture 3 without doing anything else to the image. I have sharpened it slightly which simply accentuated the soft focus. I adjusted the exposure and vibrance before saving it as a jpeg for the web.
