Dear All,

This is the shot I took along a pond located in the outskirts of the city. The weather was cleared up in the late afternoon and sun was showing its strong presence and giving its magical light to these colorful trees.

I tried to capture the art in this location blessed with absence of wind and thereby pin-drop silence you can judge from the stagnant waters on the surface of this small pond. The mirror-reflections were a moment to look at for ages.

Hope you enjoy the mood in this shot!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Paras,
Beautiful Autumn foliage in reflection contrasting marvelously with the blue clear sky. A mirror-like water. A very sharp and neat image.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

I like the idea here Paras. The colours and reflections are stunning. I'm glad you cropped out most of the bank. I may have cropped it completely out and turned the shot upside down to show a watery landscape. I might do a workshop if you don't mind. Lovely shot capturing all the glorious colours of autumn.


Even upside-down it is still beautiful! Love the colors. Good lighting and dof with nice details even the reflections. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras.

I love the reflected scene, so much rustic tones going on here. The sky tones sets it off so well.
Cant quite work out the line going halfway across the reflection, have stood on head and still unable to work it our lol.

stv ;o))

Ciao Paras, nice autumnal composition with fascinating reflections, wonderful autumnal colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Paras, the reflections have the feel of an Impressionist painting, little dabs of colour.
Beautiful colour from the trees and the contrast of a blue, blue sky.
Well observed.
Tfs, regards Jean.

j'apprécie énormément cet effet de reflet sur l'eau ,sans un seul mouvement ,ce qui se laisse regarder sans fin!!
superbe couleurs sous le ciel bleu

Bom dia Paras
Good reflections with good colors. I like the title and the sharpness of composition...and now a days the world seem to be upside down. A very neat mirror.
Um abraço

Great title for a terrific idea. Very well executed photograph.

Hi Paras,

Just had a look at your marvelous portfolio. I had a hard time
deciding which of your photos was "best." It seems that so many are so good, I flipped a coin and chose this one, primarily because I love still reflections. And "stiller" than this doesn't exist!
Good job!
