Belém Tower (detail)
This Tower, located at Belém, Lisbon, was built by the King Manuel I in the beginning of XVTh Century to celebrate Portuguese Sea Discoveries
This picture is the reflection of the Tower on a small artificial lake. The original picture was cropped, rotated 180 degrees and flipped horizontally. The final picture received some touches of contrast and brightness to increase its effect. Hope you like it ..

Looking at the thumbnail I wondered why you blurred this picture during postprocessing... It's actually really nice and the crop very effective. Well seen.

Sobre este tema tem também o meu irmão que tem algumas fotografias bem interessantes. Acho pessoalmente que ambos sabem gerir de maneiras pessoais muito bem esta particularidade, com imaginação e plasticidade grafica. Está excelente o seu trabalho e só os grandes fotografos o fazem, por intuição e dom!

Boa tarde Rui, I like how you found a new way to portray this histic tower. It's nice to see ripple effect of the reflection getting stronger towards the top of the pic. Together with the (polarizer induced?) strong gradient in the sky, this makes for an exciting viewing experience.
Regards from Rotterdam, Bert.

Great image. Very dreamy way to present a reflection photo. The tight composition and flip really work. It's the kind of image that stands out in a crowd.

Hello Rui, very nice and interesting reflection, and goes well with your title. Very effective crop, and I was amazed that the reflection was true, not post-processed! Congratulations.

At first I thought it was one of those Photoshop filters, but I realize it is the real thing! Very nicely done! Regards, Huub
