You Capture: Week Five - Reflections

I'm thinking I should rename my You Capture posts 'Shout Out to Lynndale Park'. Because somehow I keep on ending up there. You think the scary child molester vans that park in the lot there would be a deterrent. But that's another post.

This week, I was really unsure about how to capture reflection. Mirrors seemed like the obvious answer, but I really wanted to try something with water. I was without wheels today and the closest water to me is the Puget Sound, about four miles from our house. It was too cold to walk that far, but I still wanted to get out as G was stir crazy (okay, me too) and the sun was shining. So off to the park we went.

What I forgot is I live in one of the wettest areas EVER and of course there would be puddles. OF COURSE!

And I got these:




I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with myself. I love how vibrantly the trees showed up!

Of course, I couldn't let the week pass without the obligatory adorable albeit fuzzy child shot. G just had to kiss himself in the mirror. Babies are so yummy!

I had to take a second look at the top two, they are very cool. I think that is the neat part about reflection shots, they make you do a double take!

The second is my favorite. The trees are so clear you wonder how the concrete got up in the sky.

Wow! The second shot is really amazing. It looks like an actual picture (instead of a reflection) with a photoshop trick applied. I love it!

Your "puddle" shots are fantastic! I really love them. It looks like pictures of trees and sky in the pavement. Really nice job!

I love how the reflection moves over the water. A really nice way to make the shot more interesting.
