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!

Somehow my work was left out of this, here are some of my beach reflections.
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.
Victoria is right.
Agreed. The Aurora Borealis is quite beautiful in the original photo (https://www.flickr.com/photos/walkadog/3389058334/), it is definitely NOT a reflections.
I love these pictures!
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
They all look great to me, some fantastic images

Beautiful images, unfortunately many of them are so heavily retouched that most of the magic of true, simple water reflection is lost.
A really lovely selection. There’s a lot of talented photographers out there.
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!
Excellent shots. I love trying to get reflections.https://www.flickr.com/photos/steeljam/6153447149/
This is a shot taken in Guilin, China, hope you like it…
Great photos. I look everywhere for all types of reflective surfaces in my own work.
Wonderfully done allhttps://farm8.staticflickr.com/7259/7753553096_52dbf7e726_z.jpg
Fantastic images…great photographers doing wonderful work.
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.
Amazing photo’s. Amazing collection. I believe you have done Narcisus well (not meant in negative
