This looks great. I was trying to do the same thing myself yesterday, but just couldn't frame it right. The fact that people kept walking past giving me the "Why is that fat bloke taking a photo of a puddle" look, didn't really help.  :)

Thanks Geoff, 

I only use fixed focal length and was actually standing in the puddle and took 4 pictures to get this one. 

May also be I used manual focus, but I do not remember. 

 

It also helps to thinking upside down.

I believe they look better when flipped: 

 

Not the same shot but same scenery, first is turned upside down, the second is not:

More like a pond from the looks of it, which gives me an idea actually. I've found before that in the right light, using a polarising filter can bring out reflections in water very nicely. I rarely use my polariser but should do more.

 

Thanks for the tips. It's always good to look through other people's shots in this thread to get inspiration.  :)

Correct, second shot was a pond not a puddle. 

No polarising filter involved, I do not use them at all. 

 

Edit: same scenery was regarding the two additional photos from the pond, the puddle was somewhere else. 

Also, I give a sh**e about what people think; For a Citroen DS shot I I once laid down flat on the pavement - must have looked funny to passers by.

For personal reasons.

 

Obviously not the most elegant cat on earth but, judging by such an absolute lack of style, definitely the one I deserve…

The Guildhall building in Guildhall Square, Portsmouth.
 
I admit I love creating these keyboard images.  :)  I don't always use the same keyboard shot but I vary them, and still have a whole load ready for the next bit of inspiration I get.
 
Emirates Spinnaker Tower, Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth. Shame there wasn't more blue sky. I would have changed the sky in post, but with the detail of the tower being a similar colour to the existing sky, it would have been an editing nightmare.
