Extraordinary idea xD. You just made a photo of water where the pole was mirrored. A really really good idea! What I think is also fitting is the ground on the upper right side of the photo. You can think that the pole is in the ground, though it would be impossible that way. The light and the angle you chose in this photo is awesome ! I just love this. You always have brilliant ideas and make great art just like this here. The small points of dirt (?) where the sun is shining on are looking like small stars or diamonds . x3 A cute idea.
What do you think?

This is a wonderful and excellent example of perspective photography,it shows how well proffessional photography is accomplished I see a lot of know how and experience in this image the quailty of capture is impressive and shows well in the exposure the perspective angle of the power pylon caught in the reflection gives a wonderous sense of misperseption and alignent giving the viewer that sense of surreal misdirection and overall compelling image. For this photographer I say keep up the excellent imagery you get better never worse the mark reflect a true felling of how I see the image in great respect.

Thought this was a cool sky shot in itself, but once I saw the word "puddle" I was like woooow!! :D I'm not even a fan of power lines (taking a bunch of sciency classes in which EVERY SINGLE DAY I hear about how we're ruining the planet...it's pretty depressing...) but I admit, this is awesome! :) Loove the irony of the reflection of manmade stuff in nature. This whole series is great. :) Awesome job.

You're welcome. The only thing that could possible make this better would be if it was a nuclear reactor instead of a power line.
Eh...ima nuclear freakxD
Anyway good job.

I'm not completely sure what it is, but I LOVE this picture! I think it's the fact that it's a reflection. Somehow the bit of ground that you can see just...really makes the photo. xD

It's not supposed to look right because it isn't right, it's a reflection. But in this case, right is wrong, like a double negative. But I'm not trying to change your mind, at this point I'm just arguing like a jackass.

Best reflection pic I've seen in awhile. I like how there's none of the original, but just the reflection. Your entire surreal energy series is awesome. I'd love if you contributed some artwork for our band's contest...you have a great eye!

Truly lives up to the genre. Surreal is the only word I can use to describe this work. It is calming, intriguing, and makes you wonder. I'm already forming a story behind the puddle in my head from this one image. Great job.
