These are very interesting, Irma - you have stood the conventional sunset photo on it s head by not including the sky or sun - only their reflections. Great outside of the box thinking. I think you achieve what you are going for in all of them.

A couple of details really catch my eye:

The reeds in the top left of $1
The fish in #2 - brilliant. Also the pinkish clouds.
The reflections of the tree tops in #3 - particularly the tree tops on the far left and about a third in from the right.

Well done. I like to see artists experiment.

Thanks so much all for your comments... Smile

#2 made me think about that video where birds are diving to get some fish.. I thought about flying fish and I loved the idea... Smile

It was my second time I use the G9 for reflections and I am very happy with the result so far... It has a wider DOF and this gives me a very sharp reflection with f4.8!!

#3 I don't normally sharpen my pictures, but this time, I sharpened this image, by copying the blue channel, sharpen it and blend the layer to soft light and reduce it to 30% opacity... it was amazing the result... very fine sharpening...

Lovely work Irma and the fish reeds in number 2 are classic.

Hi Irma, sunset and sunrise always fascinate me, but in photography much more; and you did a great set for this, my favurite one is number 1, well captured, so artistic. I loved it Irma,

Thank you,
with my love,
nia
