Great shot. The inverted picture you submitted just hurt my brain trying to figure it out, where as this one makes sense straight away. The inverted image in the puddle is actualy easier for the eye to intepret because it expects to see a refelected image upside down.

I really like the "clouds" in this, and actually prefer this original version over the flipped one. Very nice work - Bryan.

Francesco Martini
very original reflection!!!!!!!

Howard Dion
Another upside down which way is up original Wilson image with lots of color. Would have been great if it was just starting to rain. Oh well, so it goes.

Wilson- you are a master of reflections. Please tell me how you get them so clear and with such detail? Mine seem to turn out lacking depth. What's the key? Is it the F stop, the tripod or is it just you are much better than I? LOL That one was easy! LOL But seriously, how do you do it, give me some details.

If you WERE going to manipulate it, what do you think you would do? I'm just curious, as I have actually liked some of your other reflections better than this. Yes, it's clear and the colors are great, but my eye wants to see more of the bottom of the building in the reflection.

Ken Beilman
Wilson I think I like this better, although they are both good. Pretty cool this is unmanipulated. You are the master of reflections. Thanks for the tips re: reflection images.

Wilson Tsoi
Thank you all for your feedback so far, appreciate them all. So far most folks seems to prefer this original orientation. I guess when it comes to reflection, the simpler the better Lou Ann, for this matter, I probably wouldn't PS this. If you want to see more struture's top, here it is. Jayme, thanks for the compliment. I normally try to use as small of an aperture as possible to maximize the hyperfocal distance, and to get impact, use wide angle and position the camera as low to the ground as possible. Either use a compact digital flip-out screen (like a Canon A80/A95,) a right-angle finder (for SLRs,) or a medium format right-angle ground glass. I find figuring out which way to display reflection shot the most challenging aspect, so thanks for all your feedback. ^_^

Any time, Ken. Any time. ^_^
