Reflections HD

By ChillzWow
Having rained for a few hours, my wide balcony ledge had collected a significant amount of water.

*loves my balcony*

great shot...at first thought its the result of a polariser you might have used but i see you used a simple digital camera....bravo for the work! :clap:
ChillzWow's avatar
Hmm, i haven't thought of using a polariser. how would it affect a normal image?
SAUROV's avatar
a polariser has the ability to enhance or make reflections disappear......it also increases contrast of the image with a quality that cannot be achieved during post-processing.

i wish i could show you some of my pictures but i haven't uploaded them yet as i am still honing my skills.I am new to it too and learning to use it.b ut you can google it.

Ah ok. But cameras these days dont really need polarisers because images are enhanced automatically by the camera.

This is really magical and surreal - I love how the buildings and the trees are so dark, enhancing the reflections. Amazing. :clap:

Thank you!
The sky wouldn't be this colour if the buildings weren't dark.

Great shot with lovely colors and softness.
Though the water doesn't really look like water to me since I don't see the point that little "lake" starts which makes me think it is the roof of a car with a weird angle or something like that. Maybe throwing a little rock to the water would make some nice effects to that reflection, maybe not though
It is an awesome shot anyway, I love it.
Nice work :)

Thank you for your comment.
Yeah well it's not a lake or the roof of a car. True, you can't see the edge of the water. That's cause i photoshopped it.
Nah, the rock would be out of focus.
BirdieG's avatar
All you would need is the lines on the water the rock would made, so you wouldn't really care about them being unfocused :P
Well it looks nice right now anyway :)
ChillzWow's avatar
Haha ok.
You mean ripples? Oh that might reflect other parts of the sky. Idk if it would look nice.
BirdieG's avatar
Yea the ripples.
Well, who knows, you could have tried though :P
ChillzWow's avatar
Yeah maybe i could've tried. But it was a balcony ledge. And i had to keep my camera like milimetres from the water surface.
