Reflections everywhere

In a puddle on the street of Riga the reflection of the Rīgas Dome (Riga's Town Hall). Reflections are everywhere, I always try to capture them, not always with a satisfying, but I like to share this one with you my friends.

PP work: adjusted levels and curves, brightness and contrast. Removed some dirty particles from the puddle like a cigarette end and a small piece of paper which was disturbing the view in my opinion. Furthermore cropped and resized, sharpened and add frame.

Hi Hans,
A nice reflection of this marvellous building.
A very good eye to produce such artistic presentation. Great management of light and excellent rendition of exposure.
Adequately framed to complement!
My best regards,

Hans, good eye to see this reflection in the puddle. I couldn't help but wonder as soon as I saw this, how it would look if flipped 180 degrees. I did a WS. What do you think?

very nice seeing this upside down. different approach and effective.

Hi Hans,
I like this one!
Very good composition in the respect of the thirds and nice presentation.
The soft harmony with blue and light ochre colors with fluid reflections is very attractive.
Excellent work! Annie

Well seen and captured photo Hans



This is very nice in an impressionistic kind of way. I also like to look at reflections, but I don't think that I have seen any that have been this clear. It would also be interesting "flipped" so that the view of the church was normal. I like it a lot. Lisa

very keen eye and well thought out, very artsy and abstract, well done, thanks scott

Hello Hans,

Çok güzel ve yaratıcı bir kompozisyon olmuş.
