I captured this sunset reflection shot while I was in Wellington NZ over the Christmas break, so many amazing reflections in the windows of the CBD at sunset!

Settings: Shot on my Olympus OM-D mirrorless, ISO 1600, 1/40sec, f/5.4, 39mm



Reflecting on the past:

“Reflection on benchtop”
Canon 70D with Canon EF100mm f/2.8L IS USM lens
Aperture mode: f/4.5, ISO 4000, 1/125 sec (shot in monochrome)
Tipped out my ‘vintage’ childhood scrabble set on the black laminex kitchen bench & was struck by the morning’s natural light enhancing or distorting the letter tiles’ reflections in different ways from different perspectives. So I set up this shot & had a play with different angles &  settings (and my new lens of course). My first attempt at something like this

This picture was taken in Bali in a place north of Seminyak Bali. I quite liked the warmth of the sunset and the outline of the palms and decking. I tried for a nice Silhouette and I think I achieved it here in this pic.


Skyscraper on Building

This was taken a few years back while looking around KL. We were on our way to the Petronas towers when I saw this reflection in the building opposite. Looking at it through the reflection highlights how majestic this building really is from afar. I thought this picture catches both the essence of the KL night life and the beauty of tower as it looks over the city.

Sunset Reflection
I was on my home from Manilla one evening and the sun was setting and I came across this big pool of water on the side of the road.
I stopped to take some sunset photos and managed to capture this reflection along with a sun flare
I cropped the photo a little otherwise it’s as taken
Was taken with Canon 60D on Shutter Priority – f/20  1/50 sec  ISO 200
The beautiful reflections of lake Keepit at sunset.
“Pagoda Reflection”
This is a scan of a photo I took on film in Myanmar. I love the reflection and how you don’t know which was it goes. The water makes the sky look bluer in the reflection.
