    the sea is the sky - and other reflection shots in Swansea Marina

    These were all shot yesterday at Swansea Marina. They are all standard shots of reflections, but most of them are greatly enhanced in RAW edit (CS5). In some cases they are inverted 180 degrees vertically.

    All shot with Canon 5D Mk2 and 24-105mm.

    C&C welcome

    This one is basically a similar shot to the one above, but I zoomed in to the bottom half of it. I then inverted it to make it look like a standard view. Does that make sense?

    I find this one a bit sinister, but I'm not sure why.

    Yet another very impressive set, Rob.

    It's all about 'seeing' the picture in the first place, isn't it. I wonder how many of us would have 'seen' these pictures as we walked along. I don't think I would. So, it's about learning to see.

    You're correct, but I always think once you have an idea or technique it's a lot easier to spot opportunities for it. In this case I specifically went to the marina as I knew I would get shots such as these. It was a bit dull, weather-wise, so doing reflections was ideal (not too much glare).
