37 Photographs That Use Water for Amazing Reflections

Inspired by this week’s Light Stalking weekly challenge (you have entered, haven’t you?), we decided to go looking for what others have done with the theme of reflections. Using water to get a reflection shot narrows the theme a little further, but also allowed us to find some amazing shots! Check them out, and share your own in the comments!

    The aurora borealis photo should not be included as a reflection shot. The “water” is a very simple photoshop filter and not a true reflection. The other photos all use real water for fantastic reflections. You can see how the trees and water are chopped off where the “reflection” begins. While it looks neat, it does not belong in the same category as the others.

    I was pretty pleased with this reflection of the Millennium Bridge and Baltic Flour Mill Gallery from a series of pictures I took on the Quayside in Newcastle in July 2012[img]7573813878_3fd006dff9_b.jpg[/img]

    Beautiful images, unfortunately many of them are so heavily retouched that most of the magic of true, simple water reflection is lost.

    I think alot of them are really great — truly a “reflection” photo. Some I feel are little too re-touched, just my opinion of course. Overall, really nice selection!

    I screwed up a photo I took of the Spinnaker in Portsmouth. I cut off the top of the tower. I almost deleted it but realised the reflection was perfect. A quick flip made it a good picture.
