I’m a photographer and cinematographer based in Southern California. When I don’t have a camera in my face I enjoy going to the movies and dissecting the story telling and visual aesthetics.

    I dunno, to me the winner has an all too obvious “‘photoshopped” reflection. It’s too perfect.

    We all know water has ripples and from the lack of cloud movement we know it’s not a long exposure so include the ripples in the water. It’s not a very tricky thing to do. And stretch the bottom layer that you’re copying on to a little bit as we know light drags across water so any reflection isn’t going to be an EXACT mirror image.

    It’s a nice image by all means but I just feel it could have been a little more realistic.

    Amazing shots ladies and gents. The processing was done very nice and subtle for the most part.
