Mirrored trees on the Lake Burley Griffin

By butterflydiva72    
I scored some beautiful mirrored images in the morning by the lake. I didnt expect the photos to come out so good as the mirror image wasnt that clear in person!

Lovely scene and colours but the middle is a bit messy with all the telegraph wires. Might be worth concentrating on the left (or right) copse of trees and edit out any stray wire. there is a lot of potential in this scene with the colour, reflections and even, maybe, the cattle.

Thanks for your critique. Greatly appreciated!! This shot came from far across the lake and I couldnt even see the wires when I took it. There wasnt much to work with left or right of it too much. I am very new to this and wouldnt have a clue how to edit out the wires Sad Wish I did.

I think the reflections are the standout feature in this image. Cloning out wires is tricky unless you have the healing spot brush in the latest Photoshop/elements (I don't). However since the reflection is the best bit I think you could break the rule of shots like this where the waterline is placed exacly half way in the image. If you just cropped the top 1/3, down to the level of the lowest wire, I think you'd have a beautiful abstract in letterbox format (with just the lower half of the trees visible) which would look great framed up!
