LOL! I really like the reflections, especially your reflection. It's always fun to photograph the view in a very wide traffic control mirror.

Your skill with that camera continues to grow! Great job with the water (and nice mirror shot too!)

Thanks, all! Fun shots! Sure enjoy my camera. But the day will eventually come when I get a prime lens, and then I will make a miniture Viking boat for my "kit lens" and set it aflame as it drifts out into the lake. Just kidding. Thanks again. Ned

I downloaded SmartCurve into my PSE8. Below are my reflection photos. First the original, 2nd my "previous" post-processing attempt; third, SmartCurves and post-processing. What do you think? Perhaps I added too much light to my post-processing...

Ah so that's what you look like!

Always good to put a face... well... part of one to a name!

Great shots mate, gutted I can't do the same at the lake I take my lunchtime stroll every day, people must throw hundreds of kilograms of bread in the lake to feed the birds every day, and the surface of the water is just a greasy mess.

Both of your two processed photos look good as far as light/dark, on my monitor neither one looks over-lightened. There looks to be a difference in color between the two, and the third one (second processed one) has darker darks than the first one. Which is more realistic to you? To me the third one looks a bit purplish in the lower left corner (darks) while to me the second one looks a bit more believable when it comes to color. But I wasn't there so I don't know.
