This one I shot a couple of days ago in Muddus national park in northern Sweden. As my last posted image it's a standard 1A application for the tech/view camera with tilted focal plane, but well this is the "Technical Camera Images" thread
With the semi-closeup perspective and thus very thin depth of field the optimal placement was not along the water surface though, but instead lift it up a bit on the plants. I love having a 20x loupe when doing these type of precision focusing. Using a 180mm lens I could still stand almost upright at the edge of the beach.
The toughest challenge in making this picture was to get a good group of clouds in the water reflection. If you've worked with these type of reflections at close range you know that moving the camera very little will have a large impact on how the reflection move. This is both good and bad. It's good as you can keep the foreground composition fairly static and hunt for your reflection, but it also makes it hard as a tiny movement misaligns your reflection. That combined with moving clouds made this hard, and really put me to the test how fast I can handle the camera. I worked about 30 minutes moving around the camera and shooting a number of frames until I finally felt that I'd nailed a composition that was good. I like the cloud reflection echoing the diagonal. As always when working with clouds you need a bit of luck too.
