A set of two images that just illustrate something for Lee really.

I'd noticed when reviewing my images that the water splash often made the water appear to be running downhill and so I had applied a slight adjustment to mine to rotate the canvas.

A cracking shot Cheryl. See what you mean about the ripple too. Have had a go at it myself today and it looks more pleasing on the eye. Thanks Smile

Always a tricky one to line up with water ripples. The eye says different to the brain.
Cracking capture Cheryl. Are there any trout left in there

An absolutely cracking capture Cheryl, it's a real beautyl!!

I think you did the right thing with the rotation crop to level the image but i don't think it's the splash making it appear to run downhill, it's your eye telling you that the image isn't truely level.

Objects and their reflections in water are always exactly vertical in nature, so if you line up the fish and it's reflection in V2 with the right side of the window you'll see that the fish touches before it's reflection..... so it's out of level.

In V1 with the rotation crop, the fish and it's reflection touch the side of the window together....so it's level

Amazing how even the slightest deviation from level can be picked up almost instinctively by the practiced eye as you have demonstrated here Wink

Great work Cheryl!!
Regards
Vic.

Thanks all. Plenty of fish Richard, else the fishermen would not bother Wink

Vic that's normally the trick I use to rotate, choose something in the main image and the reflection and match those points. I generally have to do it slightly with the water drop shots.

Was just based on something Lee asked me about his shot and I said I'd noticed that this effect was present on his upload yesterday. It's not major in terms of rotation, but has great impact on whether the brain will accept and therefore like the image.

Ah Jonah, I have loads more.

I'm even considering checking out the Finnish place now as this was good, but I think it could be better. Or maybe the sea eagles again are the way to go. I have some money to spend on a photography holiday, but not decided what it should be.
