What a pretty view!
I use mirrors a lot in my own work Richard. Approaching water the way you do I guess it’s just a big mirror as well. Never thought of it that way.
It occurs to me that I’ve not seen your work. Have you placed any of it online?
I’m not much for the technicalities of my shooting. My greatest challenge – as I suppose it is for any photographer – is figuring out the light. Reflections play a large role in addressing that issue. Sometimes using them creates a hoaky product. But occasionally it works well. I think it did in this particular shot, allowing me to use a portrait layout and gain the features and textures of the water and the various artifacts it’s supporting without giving the appearance of a lot of drab empty space. I haven’t looked at this in black and white. I liked the warmth that color adds to this pastoral scene. These gardens by the way are really beautiful. They cover only a very small area but they’re well conceived and maintained.
