Default An alternative way of using a polarizer LOL

While my wife was taking a photo of me I noticed the reflection of the beach on my polarizor. I had to get a shot of it so I snagged her Lumix and snapped one Wish the sky wasn't blown out

Thanks for looking!
Chris

There's no cut and paste, just a little levels and curves in PS.

Nice, France


This was the view behind me...

Thanks shoturtle! Was lucky to catch the reflection when she was composing the shot. I let out a "Hold it right there!"

It was taken in Nice, France, at the top of Colline du Château.
