Hello Renier, on this wintry afternoon in Melbourne.
Very pleasing reflection-in-a-puddle picture, with the added strength of fine perspective, a human figure, and the rich colour of the earth.

Two parts in this image are very lovely; one the puddle in foreground with nice reflections, two; very great perspective through the long footpath between the trees.
You did very well with add the man or woman this gives more dynamic to the picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

This is a very appealing composition full of atmosphere. I like the long perspective with the person at the end just about to disappear round the bend in the path. The foreground reflections are a definite bonus. A lovely harmonious mix of tones.

This is really striking! That reflection in the puddle, a foto within a foto is really intuitive. The perspective is great and the tree trunks creating a nice striped image
dareco (17134) 2008-07-19 9:14
A perfect reflection!! This is great work! The path is very lovely, the type of place I love. TFS and have a great day!

Haven't seen you on TE for awhile. Very nice photo with the eye catching puddle & reflections before it takes us further into the photo. The man there is another good focal point. Nice colors of autumn. Bet Regards. Latiff.

beautiful scenery with amazing reflection in the foreground,
well seen and composed!
crckt (7222) 2008-07-20 9:08
I love this POV, I especially like the small pool of water where you got the reflection. Smart piece of work!
Gerrit (51935) 2008-07-20 9:28
excellent composition in good format. Fantastic reflections,
cunejo200 (7281) 2008-07-20 12:20
I see that you have been putting your new camera to good use. The reflection on the puddled water is sharp, the man hiking on a diagonally presented road enhances the scene. Lake Ohau looks like a beautiful place to hike especiay at the onset of autumn. A mighty fine posting. Greetings! Danilo
Charo (51212) 2008-07-21 5:02
Great point of view with the reflections in the small puddle of water. I love the human presence in the woods and colors of the earth. Excellent light and details.
gunbud (34066) 2008-07-21 18:32
Wonderful vertical presentation this lovely forest landscape.
You took full advantage of the winter rains to get this string reflection of trees and sky in the deep still puddle.
Excellent sharpness and clarity to this lovely winter shot.
axiotea (21651) 2008-07-22 20:43
The puddle with the reflection in it, is an eye catching and lead the viewer to the path and human presence adding a sense of distance. Love the colors too!
Benedict (7076) 2008-07-22 22:02
fine view reflections of figures in the stagnant waters.
and then looking at the receeding parallel lines of this rural road with that human element walking on it centrally, the compo gives that evocative appeal! a winner!
Angshu (56758) 2008-07-23 1:00
Two new posts, that's quick my friend! The POV is great here as is the perspective. But the peach is the reflection on the small water pool in the FG. Good work with your new camera!
pablominto (53746) 2008-07-23 8:36
Another fine winter image, with the dry grass that seems to be the trademark of the NZ winter!
The pond in the road serves as a great mirror, well seen...
A fine composition with a great play of light!
stego (24132) 2008-07-23 10:14
A fabulous compo that makes justice to the beauty of that thick forest. I like how the pond reflecting the sky contributes to lit the interior of the forest, while giving a nice graphic balance to the image. Although there is some OE, I find that the light management is remarkable.
danos (97879) 2008-07-30 2:34
nice and idyllic place to make someone a walk in the shores of Lake Ohau.The reflections on the pond and the existents of the woman add life in the scene.The narrow and earthy alley create depth in the field.Well done.
francio64 (39888) 2008-08-14 6:04
great and beautiful reflected in the water!
Excellent contrast and beautiful colors!
bakes888 (18499) 2008-08-31 1:33
Hi Renier. Nice capture. Well composed with good depth and a subtle sense of mystery created by the figure. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good week, Paul.
