    Interesting, what is the reflective surface?

    Marble?
    Polished ice (skating) rink?
    Water doesn't usually have joins in

    Nice exposure, and the white low clouds really make the shot, especially with their reflections.

    Cheers,

    I believe it is granite, or some other type of polished stone, but water is involved. I'll be following up with a subsequent photo tomorrow where you can see the mist coming out of the round features that you see in the ground. The slits are for drainage. It's a very neat fountain, and though I didn't know it when we arrived in Bordeaux, a very popular photo spot. If it hadn't been for an American student we met by chance, we would have never gone there.

    This is a really nice shot. I am surprising how many details you could retain in the reflection.

    Ah, wet, polished stone; no wonder it gives a good reflection - as Yan points out.

    Nice and flat, and the water is not deep enough water for ripples from wind to form, but I bet they have to filter the re-circulated water, or it would all gum up.

    Sadly, I find half the fountains in my country seem to be spoiled by some drunken joker putting washing up liquid in and creating loads of bubbles Sorta destroys the photo opp.

    Cheers,

    Another beauty. The large size version really makes an impressive image.

    What do you think about another slight sharpen, particularly along the bulldings? Or do you think that would be too much?

    Donald - I'm trying to be very conservative lately with my sharpening, as I've been known to go bonkers in the past. Perhaps I undershot this time. Thanks, everyone for your encouraging comments.
