I wasn't prepared for this shot, just happened when I crossed the bridge and saw one fisherman and nice reflection on the water. I pulled over, took my camera out, looked at it was on aperture mode but didn't notice it was f32 then rushed down to make a shot coz the moving clouds made me worried the moment gone.
When framing, I noticed the was another man walking on the bank, hold for seconds to get clear reflection on him then shot.
On pp I flipped the pic vertically making his reflection as poi. I didn't clone out the three pillars coz I think those can be an element lead to 'the way home' thus support the title.

You made me almost break my back to confirm that this is a very attractive shot with wonderful tones and repetitive textures in a minimalist spirit. But upside down it is quite disorienting in an unpleasant way.

Gorgeous flip. The water/sky is divinely textured. But my favorite part is the guy with the fishing rod.

Would rather you didn't flip the photo. It's really cool, love the colours, but I'd like it more in it's proper orientation.

This image bothers my eyes to no end. Its because its upside down, I ams sure you did that on purpose.. tho not sure why (other then maybe to make the refection of the person the focus?) Flipping it around its a great shot.
