This is a reflecting pool at the Denver Botanic Gardens. It has a black or very dark bottom which helps incredibly well for reflections. After studying the motif for a few minutes, I decided to toss a rock in to create the waves. The image is upside down and straightened a bit to compensate for the angle of view due to the angle of set up. Hope you like it.

This deserved much more, but unfortunately voters rarely love original images like this.

In any case not an awful score Dennis!

That was a stupid movie but this is a better photo that I totally understand.

Great, a reflection only image! It works well with the ripple identifying it as a water reflection, I love the distortions resulting from it, hope you do well with this.
