After heavy rainfalls and storms water gathers at the end of the downhill from Platanos to Ayia Marina.

Bright day after the rain, and you found a great puddle to view a fine reflection, Ourania.
At first glance, and before reading the title, I thought this was a view through bushs strair forwards to the house, than realized you made an exquisite art photojob.
Well done my dear friend.

bellissima intuizione, sia per riflesso, sia per la scelta del b&w.
Un risultato ad effetto che già si aprezza dalla miniatura.

amazing reflect you captured .and land exist nice texture around of water.

What a clever shot and really well seen. I assume this was flipped in post production. Nothing wrong with that: this is superb, and the b/w treatment adds to the idea of an "art" photograph.

The rough texture of the street encircles the reflection very nicely, giving the building and the clouds a fine rounded frame. The original colours probably didn't add much so the choice to make this in B&W was clearly very wise. Photographers are often given the advice to not just look straight ahead or to the sides, they should also look up. To that could be added: Look down. At least on rainy days.

Excellent result well seen these reflections on water, interesting contrast with this b&w version, tfs.

Hi Ourania, very good photograph of this interesting composition in black and white, fine view, and in this interesting image captured with good sharpness and light. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
chrislo (4151) 2013-12-03 13:27
This is a very fine composition, so artistic and evocative. You have caught these reflections perfectly here with good textural detail to complement the mirror-like puddle, transforming a simple sight into a very intriguing photo. Very well observed and presented.

Hola dear Ourania
At first sight I believe it was a view taken from freezing window, reading your note I realized it was... a creative reflect on a puddle, so I realize you walk sometimes looking up and also down and finding and composing your personal compositions
Like also the W/B colors, seems appropiated
Greetings and a good week
Giustiniani (2993) 2013-12-03 15:14
excellent! Bien vu, tellement bien fait. Le choix du sujet et le choix du noir et blanc donnent une superbe photo.
mcmtanyel (10959) 2013-12-03 21:01
You caught a very nice reflection. You could almost convince me that this was a regular photo with a fancy frame-job. B&W suits it well.
dkmurphys (47024) 2013-12-04 0:23
Well spotted detail, a fine artistic reflection. Good work, enjoy a fine day ahead.
subhendu_bagchi (25328) 2013-12-04 1:09
wow, beautiful reflection. Great composition once again. Like the upside down presentation which added graphism to it. Great sky with flakes of clouds which are looking awesome in monochrome. Very good one. Tfs.
Noel_Byrne (21544) 2013-12-04 2:41
the face of this building reflects well your title, the weather and your choice of black and white, it seems to be gazing with a sad look out, as if remembering something or someone from its past. No doubt, this is down to your excellent composition of the building in the reflection, surrounded by the rich texture of the ground.
It reminds me of Mirror Mirror on the wall.
All the best
mirosu (12684) 2013-12-04 2:59
Excellent monochrome photo, superb light & clarity. Monochrome captures the mood of this scene much more than color could. You have created a really strong composition with great sky, excellently framed in portrait format. Well done.
timecapturer (45707) 2013-12-04 4:33
like this! It is original and imaginative, but it is the presentation in B&W that makes it so special and effective. Inspiring imagery!
Regards - B.
jhm (135866) 2013-12-04 4:58
Why in black and white, but I know that the photographer makes his own choice.
Also excellent perspective and depth picture.
Very well presentation, nice done, TFS.
Cricri (101873) 2013-12-04 5:56
Bravo pour le coup d'il et la réalisation qui est excellente, bon cadrage et un choix du N/B qui convient parfaitement
mesutilgim (80654) 2013-12-04 13:08
Hello dear Ourania,
Very nice b&w capture through the wetted window.
Great graphical effect.
TFS and best regards
fabbs99 (16125) 2013-12-04 21:11
Beautiful reflection shot in monochrome.I just love it.TFS.
saxo042 (36918) 2013-12-05 8:22
A well observed picture! This motive will surely disappear when everything dries up...
SnapRJW (29414) 2013-12-06 6:00
Hello Ourania - A shot very much in the mood of one I commented on earlier today posted by Jean Jacques. The B&W conversion helps us to focus on the textures and reflections in a way that colour would hinder. I like this, it's creative and in a way tantalising.... it's like opening a door onto a parallel reality. Nicely done. Warm regards Rosemary
krzychu30 (15344) 2013-12-06 10:36
Ohh,I love this one Ourania!
You´ve captured perfectly the special "mood" of this day and the moment.B&W seems to me the best and the only right option in this case(many of us would probably left color version,but this one is soo much more expressive!)
I like also the perfect interplay of reflected part and the surrounded road and of course the light,which contributes significantly to so amazing outcome of your work!
Wish You a nice weekend
ChrisJ (94842) 2013-12-06 16:46
A fantastic silvery reflection in the mirror like pool with good sharpness and excellent tonal range and downward pov. I have a similar color shot from Morocco I must find and upload one of these days. Have a nice weekend!
COSTANTINO (51986) 2013-12-07 13:45
I liked a lot this composition
a shot with its personal style
let your imagination free
its a bright day after the rain
delpeoples (52737) 2013-12-07 23:03
ahh molto particolare e buon scelto con il bianconero. Questa le piacerebbe molto la mia amica Suzy che ama i riflessi cosi. Una bella ripresa, ben composta e contrasta.
Complimenti e ti auguro un bellissimo fine settimana
jcpix (11726) 2013-12-10 16:01
Reflections are usually pretty fun, aren't they? :) Seen by many of course, but it takes a smart eye and realization to envision the opportunity of creative imagery...and might I say, you've most certainly done it!
I've taken a good look at this one a number of times today, and each time I've been equally impressed at your result...this is really neat, and consciously presented for maximum effect. Simple enough at first glance, but there's so much more to the final product here. Compliments on a beautiful creation!
sevy (15357) 2013-12-16 2:20
It is not so easy to get good shot of tilted reflection because it should not be only a reflection.
I feel you succeed here on this shot, mainly through the balanced composition showing both the reflection and the ground texture.
The B&W is working, putting more in evidence the textures.

Ουρανία, μια πανέμορφη φωτογραφία πολύ χαρακτηριστική τής δημιουργικής ματιάς σου και του εξαιρετικού καλλιτεχνικού σου γούστου! και το μονόχρωμο είναι μια πολύ σωστη και εκλεπτυσμένη επιλογή!!
σε συγχαίρω για τήν αξιόλογη δουλειά σου...
έλειψα αλλά ηταν για καλό σκοπό...ημουνα με τον Ερυθρό Σταυρό στην Μανίλα...σου ευχομαι καλές γιορτές πάντα με υγεία και οτι επιθυμείς!!
πολλές ευχές και σ' ευχαριστω πολύ πού με επισκέπτεσαι...
adores (34738) 2013-12-18 11:49
Another good reflection on the water! I like the textures of the pavement and the good reflection of the building and the cloudy sky. A very good composition!
tenretin (2359) 2014-01-13 9:34
The thumbnail of the photo does not suggest as much detail as the picture itself which led me to take a little time to observe your photo is very beautiful. As you saw, I'm pretty interested in the game of mirrors and trompe l'oeil.
Processing black and white is a good idea and you had to have a look! it is seen!.
It's funny because in fact it looks like an old mirror ... bravo!.
I wish you a nice week.

Great reflection in this puddle of this moody sky and building, the rough texture adds to the scene. Great, well spotted.
