Reflections. Everyone loves them. And everyone loves a windmill.
So a reflection of a windmill can't fail right?
I love the upsidedownness of this shot (if that is a real word? No of course not!).
Just the reflection, not the actual windmill. And upside down.
Makes you look twice doesn’t it?
This shot came about as I was trying desperately to get the shot of both the windmill and the reflection. Even at 17mm I could not fit both in. Of course I could have taken two shots and stitched them together in Photoshop, but I didn't think of that. So I ended up with this.
Not a problem.
I like it.
But there is a serious message in this – you never stop learning, and you need to think about the possible outcomes of a shot when you are there. Of course you are never going to cover every eventuality, but you need to try to cover the outcomes you want/ might want.
Experience. And practise. Lots of practise.
This is the only way to develop these skills. I keep on making mistakes, but every now and then get something I quite like.
And every now and then I produce an image and it looks like something someone else did – now that is a great feeling I can assure you!
