This is similar to "Drift Would" from a few days ago. The source photo was taken along the Great Miami River on August 31, 2008, on the edge of a contrived lagoon created by the outflow from the Fairfield water treatment plant. To the credit of the people who run the plant, the water in the outflow channel seems pretty clear and clean. It's not "gunky," never stinks, there are patches of duckweed, and the vegetation on the margins and in the pools leans towards smartweeds, sedges, and other (mostly) native plants. There was a Northern Waterthrush bobbing and chipping along the water edge when the original image was made and the photo taken; so in a way, this image is in the image of the bird. It's an example of photorealism in that respect, though I don't imagine many would agree.
