Reflection of trees in a large puddle with bubbles 

 

 

 

 

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.  :)

 

Geoff.

 

 

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.  :)

 

Geoff.

 

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.

You don't see "foody" images much on these threads so for personal reasons (I cook for my 80 year old disabled neighbour every day) not only this being a favourite but it's now my screen saver as it was fun to make and REALLY messy to eat!
