I really like the composition and colors of this shot. Very nice. The only problem I have is with the "ghosting" of the reflection (ie you can see two outlines of the leaves, etc.) Eliminate this and you have a winner for me.

Hi,

OK so for the amateurs how would you eliminate the ghosting? Is it low light?

p.s. tu foto es muy bueno...

what I "think" is happening here is you are getting the ghosting becase of the mirror or glass you used. The light is reflecting both off of the surface of the glass, and the mirrored backing or bottom plane of the glass as well, and you are seeing it because of the angle of the shot.

You could eliminate this either in post with PS, or use a reflective surface with thinner glass over the mirror, or none (like a silver platter)

I have worked it with PS for few minutes and this is the result.
