There seems to be a lot of distraction in the picture, not sure if it stuff floating in the water or stuff between camera and the water. Great idea !! Good eye..... :beerbang:

You will not be judged as a photographer by the pictures you take, but by the pictures you show.

I have to agree, too many distractions, if it was just the building in the water it would work nicely.

I agree with others that there are too many distractions. If you use photoshop try to use clone stamp tool and remove the pole and wires and plants in the puddle. It might help.

PS make a copy of original and work on copy

Re-shoot, many frames from different angles.....;)

Why so serious?

I agree and make sure when shooting from on top of something your standing were your are not accidentally casting a shadow on the target your photographing

Reflections are fun, but require close eye on the details :thumbsup:

Let's see your second shot :thumbsup:

Black and white mixed with HDR and IR photography. Some selective colour will help too.

If you want to have some fun, take a picture of something with the whole subject reflected in water. Then display the photograph upside down, which makes it appear to be the original subject with a different texture.

The photo looks out of focus, not sharp...the building is not a superb shot doesn't show me great angles, I don't see the point of subject anywhere...i don't see how it can be improved on photoshop when it has no sharp details even if you take out pole and this and that the picture is not a good subject....work with composition , find the subject that attracts you and work around it capturing it's beauty...

The only way to improve it ............ re-shoot keeping the subject in focus and over-all composition in the frame.

I would turn the picture around. And I agree, there is a lot of distractions.
