Reflecting On Reflections Another Challenge

@JudyEv started another challenge. I really like this challenge as I am on the water in my boat a lot fishing so my opportunity to get reflection photos is really good. Oddly enough I was standing on shore when I took this picture, in a back water of the river I live near. The water was perfectly still not a ripple. Which is what you want to get a reflection picture. Please click on the picture so you can clearly see what I'm going to tell you now. If you scroll to the bottom of the pic I am hoping you can see something in the left bottom corner. That's right side up. I am standing on the shore of a river. The trees are the entire reflection as close to the reflection as I could get and keep the trees in the shot. You can't actually see the real trees in my shot these are strictly just the reflection of the trees and that's why the trees are upside down. My entire photograph however is right side up. Middle bottom of pic shows a branch sticking up. This will also help you see the shot is in the correct position.

That is an almost perfect reflection and yes I get the upside down thing but I had to shrink my picture a little to see it perfectly.

It was such a perfectly still day, made the pic so much better and I just wanted to see how good the photo would be if I just got the reflection, not all the rest.

If you do any photos found online, Linda, keep to what we learned on bubblews, in that they need to be able to be shared commercially and free to use.

@MarymargII yes as long as they are public domain pictures and are small enough to go on here.

Now that was a really interesting reflection photograph. At first glance it simply looked upside down.

It almost looks like you posted the picture upside down but your note at the end shows that it is a reflection. Well done!

That is an incredible reflection. The water must have been like a millpond.

It is pretty clear, which is what I wanted. The water was as still as I have ever seen it. Perfect for a reflection shot.

Awesome photo. Although I didn't see you down below, but maybe that's not what you were saying there, I did see the branch that comes up around the middle and is angled to the right. You wouldn't see that if the photo was upside down. A floating branch high in the sky. I'm not sure whether I have any reflection photos, but after being on tsu for a while, I decided to wanted to try certain kinds that I saw done there by photographers. I don't think I have the right kind of camera to make it as good as they were able to do.

I was just stating where I was standing in relation to the picture. Yes the branch in the bottom middle of the pic was right in front of where I was standing. Thanks so much glad you like it.

Great picture. I did look at it full screen and I hope what I saw were the branches coming up from the shore ?

yup and the upside down trees are the reflection. I'm glad you liked it. It's a different kind of reflection shot.
