    Fun with Reflections

    I'll be the first to admit I generally detest those landscape photos of a mountain behind a lake on a calm day with the horizon right in the middle and that perfect reflection of the mountain on the water. I typically make specific effort to kill reflections on water with a CPL so that I don't end up making "that kind of photo". But once in a great while, I succumb.

    What about you? Got any reflections you care to share? Post them here.

    Tokengirl and Mike,
    Beautiful images!
    It really does pay to succumb, when the image cries out for it.
    Rules?...no horizon in the middle?...bah, humbug.
    I'll join the fun...

    Then again, sometimes a little mystery is better...

    or...

    Best,
    Angus

    You don't need water for reflections.

    Indeed!



    Perhaps it should say "Objects in mirror CLEANER than they appear".

    Magnolia Plantation near Charleston, SC. Taken a few years ago with an M8 and Zeiss 35 biogon.

    Carl, I love Magnolia Plantation and your photo from there is just gorgeous. The colors are perfect.

    Nice shots everyone. Thanks for starting this thread, Claire.

    No image to post but Tokengirl your image is very soothing and should be a poster for stress management
