Ripple Effect by helenhall

Ripple Effect

I was messing around with settings as part of a technical exercise and took a picture of the swan with a long exposure to get a sense of movement - it came out over exposed as anticipated but something really drew me to the ripples in the water and I couldn't let go of the image. So here it is with a couple of texture layers and a filter in cyan to mask the dirty green. I hope I have been successful in making the water the subject, and not the swan.
Interesting edit

For me the subject is still the swan and its reflection with a wonderful surround...I really like how this processed and the effect it yielded. Thinking of trying more of these? Now I need to learn what texture layers do and using tone filters. I love this.

@granagringa thanks for your observations. I added the layers because the swan was blown due to the over exposure and I felt it needed some texture. what I would like to do is learn how to do the in camera double exposures more effectively. I'm finding that it is tricky to make the right choices of what should go together.
