Challenge: Reflections Without Mirrors VI (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012 Challenge shots
Date Uploaded: Oct 21, 2012

I know a lot of people don't care for the blown backgrounds/sky, but I really like it. So you're stuck with it. :)

Here's without a blown water:

I loved the funky reflection on this guy! I had a good reflection shot, but the funky was was so much more interesting.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments! :)

Fun reflection! I almost entered a very similar shot :). I love the strong contrast here, works well imo.

Nice composition, I like the look of the goose. Too bad the high key processing decapitated the bird.

Simple, sad, lonely, hopeful, anxious. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of art.

i like the choice of using a high key technique. it really makes the subject and reflection jump out.

I tried ducks and geese - you got a way better reflection than I did :)

I like this. Wasn't sure when I first looked at it, but the more I examine it, the more I like the minimal nature.

I gave this one a 7. It's one of my favorites in the challenge. It probably would've been my fave if not for one thing. The white part at the bottom of the goose's neck blends in a tad too much with the water, and unless I look closely, it looks to me like the head is separate from the body. BUT, now that I typed all that, I noticed your title and realized you probably already knew that! Beautiful photo, though! You should get that one framed.
