An unattractive background forced me to look at shooting this tree from a reflection, which put the tree at an angle that used the sky as a background. It wasn't until after I looked at the image on a large screen that I realized that the leaves in the water appeared as part of the reflection like a ghosted image of the leaves that were once on the tree.
These little pipes coming out of this inactive fountain looked like they got lost and the ominous shadow of the tree behind them told them that they weren't in their neck of the woods.
It took several attempts to get the timing on this shot right. After seeing it full-size, I wish that I had set my aperture to a higher F-stop so that the droplets would be more in focus rather than just the spout.
