20-Day Photo Challenge – Day 4 – Capture Reflections

We spent the past five days at our northwoods hideaway. I didn’t do journal entries because we weren’t doing much that was worth writing about. I plan to do a summation of our stay in the next couple of days.

Even though we didn’t have much in the way of exciting adventures, I was able to complete the fourth photo challenge from the book Better Photo Basics by Jim Miotke. The fourth challenge is to Capture Reflections.

Last evening after dinner, Mark suggested we drive back to Sportsmen Dam Lake which is back behind our place, and tramp around for awhile. I was able to capture several reflection shots that I have to say I am really pleased with.  These are all pretty much the way they came out of the camera, I didn’t mess with them at all. (Click on any photo in the gallery to see a larger view.)

As a bonus, we were also able to enjoy a lovely sunset.

If you have any tips to share on capturing reflections, or you just want to give me your two-cents worth on my photos, please leave a comment in the section below.

  1. These are beautiful, very well done!

    My one tip for reflections is to be very careful if you use a polarizing filter, they can eliminate the reflections some times, the same holds true with rainbows.

    • Thanks, Jerry! It was fairly easy to capture these images since it was the perfect conditions. I have to say I was surprised to see how well the sunset reflection turned out. I liked that one almost the best.

      I have become a bit afraid of my filters, it seems every time I’ve used them, my photos have suffered. But then, they don’t manufacture high quality ones for my camera, that is probably the issue.
