photoblog image The not so real Bridge

The not so real Bridge


It may look like an ordinary bridge with a few trees, taken in a nice park. Actually it partly is. If you look well you see some oddities in the sky like branches, dropped leaves, a metal pipe and ripples of water. What's more: the picture is turned up-side-down. In short, it's a reflection in a little lake. I really love such images. Many people post images where you see a little water pool filled with a great reflection. I would love to shoot such images too. Hopefully I can post more in the future.

well spotted and executed Paul
the angle is great makes nice proportions
Very good paul, I wouldn't have guessed if you hadn't said.
this is really beautiful, Paul. First of all, the tones are fantastic. I like that they are earthy and cool. It helps add to the vintage feel and looks like it could be a scene out of a movie. Second, I like the perspective and how big the sky feels here, as though the trees are stretching up trying to touch the clouds. well done!

Nicely shot, Paul!
Fabulous image Paul, the single ripple really does it here, that is one amazing reflection, exceptional job!
LightningPaul: Many thanks John.
An amazing illusion! I immediately noticed that there were some incongruous elements in the picture, but I had no idea what the real story was until I read your explanation smile. Bravo!
