Another inverted refection post, I love the angle with the railway line. Our visual system is designed to allow us functioning in three-dimensional environment which is filled with light, shading, color, texture, and full of objects of different sizes at different distances. Most of us take vision for granted without realizing how complex and difficult task our brain is performing in order to correctly represent the "real outside world". Our perception is created by our brain's interpretation of visual information and sometimes it results in fascinating visual illusions. Our mind gets "actively" involved in interpreting the perceptual input rather than passively recording the input. It does not always accurately represent that input.Some text I found on line.

How did you find me, you are always ahead of me.Thank you for the review.
I first of all like the format, Panoramic. And I like the fact that the colorful world of reality only exists in the reflection. Agitated water surface gives a nice effect telling us that the reality is elsewhere. Coexistence of the reality together with another reality is very fascinating. You have discovered a very interesting world. You are very perceptive.
Very best regards,

this shot intrigues me, it is so unusual, original and effective. You have become the reflection master and I love the lines and grainy colours here. A clever observation and nicely presented. Well done!
Enjoy the week - Brian

An interesting set of reflections with a pleasant palette of colours. The person coming into shot creates a feeling of dynamism and contributes to the mood of the shot. Interesting note as well.

Cette photo est très belle et montre que tu as l’œil du photographe qui voit tout de suite l'image à faire dans un environnement parfois très banal.
Très beau travail !

I see that you're on the lookout for these!
you're spotting them very well.
This may be your best one yet.
using the railway line as your cross section.
very well done, creative for sure!

You have obviously often got your head down on the outlook for such brilliant reflections. Well seen and great tight crop. Cheers, Marlene

Wow - I love this one. The crispness and colours of the reflections are excellent. The lady walking into the picture completes this great composition. Beautifully framed as well.

A very interesting and intriguing shot and an interesting and intriguing note to accompany it too.
Great colours, sharpness and exposure and, like yourself, I love the diagonal line of the railway track.
I liked your comments about optical illusions. I read somewhere that your two eyes are equivalent to having something like 560 megapixels (!) and they apparently can send something like 200 megabytes per second of information to your brain. Unfortunately, our long suffering brains can only cope with a tiny fraction of that information and so the brain ignores a lot of it and also makes a lot of suppositions, dependent upon previous experience, on what information it does actually retain. Apparently a lot of optical illusions depend on the fact that the sun is always above us and so we have become used to seeing objects lit from above: light an object from below and it looks strange to us - I suppose an inverted image like this has similar effects on our brains too.

Hi Ike, Another successful inverted image... I like the cut with diagonal lines, nice colours in spite of rainy day..
InasiaJones (31562) 2011-07-21 7:48
Looking at your gallery, you have 8 photos featuring reflections on the first page alone, so I guess it's part of your natural attraction and photographic approach. We all have some... :-p))
I can say that you know how to have fun with them and to create images that need a second look. This one might be the most obvious example, and the visual pun is cleverly made. I like the result and it's actually inspiring me for a future photo session, although it's the dry season here for almost two months... :-p)
