Reflections of a Lazy Day



:: from the archives ::

What I like about this shot:
(a) my subject was very cooperative :)
(b) I took this through a thick pane of plexiglass, and was surprised it came out as clearly as it did

What I don't like about this shot:
(a) it seems a bit too symmetrical
(b) the thick cement ridge separating bear from water irritates me
(c) aside from bear and reflection, there's nothing else interesting in the frame

Your Evaluation? Honest critiques appreciated. What could have made this a different and/or better shot?

More water below and less space above, maybe? Also, offset the center a little so the bear has more space to look into on the left side of the frame?

I think this shot works well - the symmetry does not particularly bother me since that is anyway a component of the composition - image and reflection.

Cropping away the right portion might give it a different look.

i think the image is a little too centre....

but to get the reflection working...it is mostly unavoidable...

anyway...
