Danger!
Lens: DA 50-200mm Camera: K200D Photo Location: Northern Adirondacks ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F8

Don't know if this appeals to other folks, but I'm always intrigued by the reflections of a brick utility building built at the edge of the water. I flipped and mirrored the reflection, of course. Am I idiosyncratic in finding such places an attraction?

I sort of like this shot because it almost looks like an impressionistic painting, but I'm not sure how interesting the idea of a danger sign against a wall is:P

I would like that if the ripples in the water didn't distort the text so much. The ability to read the sign a bit better would make it an interesting shot. I like things like this too, one of my favorites is water towers...mostly in B&W...

Thanks for your comments, Pete. I'm not sure how much I like flipping and flopping reflections, normally, but the colors and textures in this reflection made me want to experiment. I love water towers, too. Don't get reflections of them here, though -- no water under the towers.

Nope, no water under water towers, so I just get standard snapshots, often in B&W. Started that on the way back from Oklahoma to Texas, tried to get the water towers in every town we went through. Now I shoot them everywhere I go.

I like the ripples and reflections in the water, always have and try to get some shots of that at times, but for this shot I would want to see what the sign says. A few light ripples making it wavy but still legible would be great.
