Impressionist Reflections

Impressionist Reflections

Reflections are everywhere, from mirrors, glass, car bodies, to water. Any smooth, shinny surface will cause reflections. Take your camera on an outing after a rainstorm and look at the puddles to see the many various reflections that are just waiting to be photographed.
Photography a reflection can take an ordinary subject and turn it into a work of artistic expression or an abstract form. Reflections stimulate both the mind and the eye. They encourage one to observe the interaction between the subject being reflected and the object that is doing the reflections.
Reflections are often overlooked by many photographers, that I have talked to.
Below is a reflection of puddle of water being reflected by my car side view mirror. A reflection of a reflection. The photo is an old film shot taken around 1985 and reworked in Photoshop Elements using the dry brush effect, to give the image more of an impressionistic look. The image was selected as a Finalist in a monthly international photo contest.
