[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Driving through the countryside yesterday with a friend, we stopped at this road bridge and managed to get some very interesting reflections in the water.

The sky then was quite grey and overcast with the threat of showers - but we were lucky no rain fell.

I have put this through a Topaz filter to emphasise the deep colours - I hope you like it

Hi Janice:
An amazing capture...well seen, shot & presented...
I super reflection...and you can turn the whole thing upside down and see it either ways :)
I have never used this filter, but looks like it works great here..and I know how you wish that the sky were blue...
but still its an excellent presentation!!!

Nice Janice - dark amd moody with great reflection and nicely composed. Looks almost like a transparency with the bridge railings looking like the edge of the film strip.


Hello Janice,

Nice to see you posting again.
I'm so glad that I opened up this thumbnail as its a great shot, which doesn't show its full worth in miniature!
I have loved studying it, to identify the reality and the reflection!
Good sharpness and dof.
I think the topaz filter has had a beneficial effect. Must try it!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

What an amazing image. The reflection is so clear that you could turn it upside down, crop it and use the reflection of the bridge as a natural frame - and you'd never know it was a reflection. I also love the way you have framed the shot with the bridge - it looks like something MC Escher would have loved (in a good way).

A great shot, well done

Hi Janice.. this certainly is an interesting photo, one could look at it for sometime. I do like the reflections here, and the Topaz filter works well on this shot. Hope you had a nice day with your friend :-) TFS

Your other friend

un travail de cadrage que j'aime beaucoup
les couleurs sont un peu tristes mais parfois c'est ainsi et c'est justement bien rendu
chez vous c'est la triste saison hivernale à présent...

Hi Janice

Wonderful shot, love how you have framed the reflections, you have certainly given some thought to this composition.

This is the Riverhead Bridge if I'm not mistaken.

I am a Topaz addict and have several of the pugins and use them most of the time.

Your water is so crystal clear in your photos. I may be good at storm clouds, you are the master of (or should I say mistress?) of water

  • Great

Hi Janice,
A nice symmetrical shot, I am not a great fan of Topaz filters but it works really well here by brightening the greens and darkening the sky

Hi Janice,
Good photo eye to have picked this one up.Nice horizontal perspective and well framed.Nice mirror image shown on the smooth water, well done.
