I think you should of cropped 1 so you couldn't see as much to the left.

2 is my favorite tho.

Good work

A question tho did you do any post processing I dunno if it's just me but Nikon canons always seem to make the colours nicer. Do you change some setting in the camera or is it done in post processing.

i really like #3. i like that all the colors are similar and the lower angle you took the picture at (closer to the ground) makes it look more interesting.

good job.

Thanks guys.

And marzy i used auto levels on nr.3, but nothing els.

I had the camera in shutter mode, with -7 exp, 100 iso and optimize image was set on more vivid.

Henning, #1+#2 are the best of the bunch, #3 has to much wet/dirty soil and distracting elements in it, in #4 the puddle is not in the centre of the attention.
I'd advise you to be even bolder than in #1+2! Get closer, cut off or leave unsharp more of the ground, look for interesting patterns in the reflection or the puddle...

Yep, how about filling the frame with the reflection - so it looks like a slightly different version of reality...

Look at this post: http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtop ... 0151#10151
Similar idea plus turned upside down to make for some surreal effect!

Hi Henning 91

I really like number two. I spent the Sunday afternoon out in the cold in the park trying to capture some reflection shots as well.

Once I have re sized and slightly cropped them I will post, you can let me know what you think. It is amazing by moving just an inch or so and the reflection changes altogether. Even worse when you have your shot set up and the wind comes "hey presto" the shot is gone. Good old mother nature :shock: :shock: :shock:

Cheers Ormina
