    Prospero, thanks, really appreciated your comment.

    Agree, second shot is nice. I am still scratching my head how I was able to pull out this. I am using DSLR only for 3 months and still learning a lot.

    As concerns the landscape, I am with you, first shot turned better exactly for the reason of slight under-exposure, though not as great as I wished it to be. Have to drive to this place and re-shoot probably, wait for another sunny day. Btw, my wife spotted this nice landscape view, not me.

    On the first shot, the reflection, I understand what you say and here are couple of examples of reflections I would think are closer matching your concept for that. YET, the idea behind the first shot was slightly different. I wanted to capture the reflection in the way that you can see not only reflection itself but also deep in the water and also see stones in the water. Lighting condition was very hard because of strong sun reflection, so looks like a flip flop at the end.

    I attach couple of examples of reflections I shoot about a month ago.

    Then in the last picture here you can see what lighting conditions I was encountering for the shot in discussion. I was standing in trees shadow against strong sun reflection on the water.

    Domenic, your first shot of landscape, was it taken in Auto mode or you twisted camera settings a bit. I really find it so well that it's hard to believe that was in Auto???

    Very nice shots Gintares. The reflections are great.

    I didn't really notice the rocks underneath the water. If these would be a bit more clear it would also be better. Did try to use a polarizer on that shot? With a polarizer you can cut the reflection of the water a little.
    You can also enhance it a little in photoshop, a unsharp mask with strenght 20 and radius 60 may do the trick.

    The lighting condition of the picture is indeed very difficult. It's hard to get a good shot in light like that.

    Prospero, try to see through reflection and then you see the pond bed... i agree, this shot did not turn out as well as it was intended so no cries from me...will try pull out a better of a kind next time.

    btw, i visited your HD tutorial, really GREAT... such a clever thing and laid down so easily. THX mate.

    Yeah, I saw the rocks after you said they were there.

    I'm glad you liked the HDR tutorial

    Dennis, fantastic shot. The lighting and post processing is great.
