Picture of sunset reflection in a puddle – An opening in the sky

Picture of sunset reflection in a puddle
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera October 21st 2007. Click image for larger view.

I found the reflection in the puddle, of the the sunset clouds, to be very beautiful. The reflection looks even more beautiful than the real clouds. A simple puddle can create nice pictures if you use your imagination 🙂

The weather has been very bad the last few days here in northern Norway so I welcomed this opportunity to photograph the small opening in the heavy layers of clouds. Maybe I should go outside and photograph the bad weather?

  1. That’s pretty awesome. How did you take your meter reading for this one? I’m wondering because the sky is brighter than the puddle, while the landscape is very dark overall. Tricky setup.

  2. Thanks Ivan 🙂

    I did my meter reading on the lightest part of the sky so it wasn’t blown.
    I then made 2 layers from the raw file where I adjusted the exposure to fit both the puddle and sky and slapped them together in photoshop.

  3. Why do I feel that you didn’t exactly “slap them together” in Photoshop?? 😀

    You should consider getting and underwater housing for your camera. That way you can take it outside in any kind of weather to shoot photos without damaging your camera and lenses. I’ll bet you could get some spectacular shots that way during stormy weather.

  4. That is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by! I’ve added you as a contact and joined your community. Your photography is awesome!
