Wonderful reflected image with a palette that looks hand painted for effect.

Clever stuff, well spotted and one of the best Sage shots I've seen as it keeps you thinking. The inclusion of a small amount of dry land is essential to assist the brain in establishing the reflection since the water surface is completely reflective from the angle you chose (no hints partially seen beneath!).

Smoke, eh? So they're burning down HMS Calliope at last? Only wishful thinking . . . .
It's amazing how many people never look down or up for their inspiration, just straight ahead. No way you could be accused of that.
Different and good.

Yep, there's always a puddle just there after a bit of rain, but it's usually full of litter. You caught it clean! With just a hint of movement too.

A refreshingly different approach to the Sage and a very effective image, I like the inclusion of the dry area of Asphalt.

This is excellent Alan. The small area of tarmac is the viewers clue to the fact that this is a reflection. Well seen.
