Default Reflections

I am fascinated by the 'glowing darkness' of this pic taken by my husband Mark this evening.

Bernice,

Indeed a fascinating photo. Reflections of all kinds. I learned the other day here that you can use a polarizer also for increasing reflections

Not so. A polarizer is used to reduce reflections. That's how we used polarizres in film days. You could rotate the polarizer until ugly reflections were gone. In the process usually you got better, more dramatic skies.
Nice pick, somewhat in the blue side.

Thanks Togny. It was taken in the last light of the day and I really liked the way it came out.

Thanks Ordo. The rocks are blue-black granite, but I did tweak the levels a bit when I saved for the web. Maybe I tweaked a bit much. Is this better? (Half-tweak)

Mark took the photo while standing on a rock in mid-stream under a road bridge.

Your comments are welcomed.
