Cathedral Rock Reflection by Stan Bormann, FPSA, MPSA

October 2020 - Cathedral Rock Reflection

About the Image(s)

Shot 9/23 at 5:11 pm with an Olympus EM1 Mark II and Olymps 12-200 f/3.5 - 6.7 lens at ISO 400, 20mm, f/16, 1/80 sec. There was not much for puddles to reflect Cathedral Rock but I made do with this one. There was distraction brush in the puddle at the left that was removed with content aware fill. Other than that the processing was pretty Lighroom Basic normal.

Hi Stan, A beautiful image! Reflections are tough to capture and I think the composition of this image does it well.I especially like the 3 layers of the image. Did you also consider perhaps open the shadows on the tree reflection in the lower right? I think this would add additional color & impact.

You are correct. I did that in the image, but not in the reflection. I should of done both.   Posted: 10/11/2020 15:03:56

In my opinion, the dark rocky ledge jutting out with reflection of the Cathedral Rock below makes your picture interesting and unique. I would not change a thing.   Posted: 10/13/2020 14:13:57

Really nice rendition of Cathedral rock. Catching a puddle for the reflection was perfect (and probably difficult to do in our desert environment). Perhaps adjusting the Rock color to match the reflection would be helpful but it's a nice image as it stands.   Posted: 10/17/2020 08:31:12

A stunning landscape made all the more interesting with the inclusion of the reflection. The fact that the water is slightly disturbed gives a nicer feel to the reflection than it would if it was dead calm. One can clearly see how this rock got its name.I like the layer effect of the composition.   Posted: 10/18/2020 07:21:49
