Photographer: Jesse Van Hoy, Seattle Photo taken: Oct. 29, Kubota Garden, Seattle Photographer’s description: “My wife and I went to Kubota Garden to enjoy the foliage. The water rushing over these leaves caught my eye. Photo made with a Nikon D750 camera and a NIKKOR 16-35mm lens at f/4.” Critique: “When it is fall in Seattle we can get great pops of color that stand out in our evergreen landscapes. The leaves in this image create great spots of color and contrast to the lush garden with the slower shutter speed creating a nice movement through the frame.” Below is a gallery of previous Reader’s Lens picks.
