Jolie façon de faire "rentrer" la famille dans le paysage. Une photo originale qui illustre bien ta note.

Bonne idée de photo.
Pour inclure les personnage tu as du retourner ta photo... Du coup les fleurs sont dans le mauvais sens... Ce qui n'est pas du meilleur effet.
Bien essayé quand même.

A cleverly composed image combining reflection with the real thing. Very nicely lit with good colours and sharpness. Water lilies in full bloom are one of my favourite flowers.

a wonderfully original and beautifully effective piece of observational imagery. Like the mix of elements here - arty and compelling work.

this is a very interesting picture, the division of the frame, the disorientation and the depth of the reflections are superb. The moodiness of the colours gives a special character to the picture. The feeling of the eye-contact is mesmerizing, the family portrait is fascinatingly clear and mysterious. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
