Puddle Reflection

Canon Digital Rebel, Canon24-70 L @57 mm f/8 1/100

Chiaroscuro and I visited the Baltimore harbor this afternoon.
We each took about a hundred photos, and each ended up with
five or six images we liked. (At least for me, that's a really
good percentage.)

This image is a reflection in a puddle in the parking lot where
we left our car. We both took a lot of reflection shots, and
Chiaroscuro tells me she's planning to post a different reflection
image of the same building, one in which the building is reflected
in the window of another building.

As far as puddle shots go, that's a great one. :) It looks almost like a watercolour painting.

Great shot! As Simon says, it looks just like a watercolour.

Yes, it does look like a watercolor, but I think that being this a real reflection add something that one cannot get with photoshop effects. The yellow line painted on the asphalt that is barely visible in the upper part of the image through the reflection, and the asphalt itself showing up in the bottom part anchors the image to reality. They reveal the reflection for what it is, and doing so they enhance the effect making it stronger. And the result is a beautiful and interesting image.

I agree with Massimo, the asphalt is what takes it from a water color to a photograph. At first I was confused by the pavement, and then I realized it was the end of the puddle. Fantastic photo.

Like everyone else has said -- very cool reflection picture, almost as if done in Photoshop, but better because it's real!
