The reflection of one window in another, Burnham-On-Sea; 5 Nov 2014.

The real window is brighter in tone than the other window’s reflection. 

In this case there are two objects, by which I mean two windows.  But if I were to look at a single object and its reflection, and if I wished to retain a natural effect – as opposed to creating something equally valid but unreal – the actual object is always brighter, if only marginally so, than its reflection.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 200 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 2 preset.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    One of the things I like most about reflections is the interactions they can create: between outside and inside, Between themselves and the landscape, or between neighbouring buildings and oter windows.A classical example, Adrian

      Andy, I just sent you a reply to this comment, but it appears to have been chewed up in the ether – so if you get two replies you’ll know why! First, glad you like this image – thank you! And I’ve just put out a post re WordPress’s moves to have us stop using the Classic Post Editor – have you got any view’s on this? Adrian

    A fine study in composition, angles, depth, and imagination. It very nearly looks like a double exposure, and it takes close study to see that the nearer vertical and the farther (rather) horizontal lattice pieces are not actually superimposed. What fun!

    Irresistible subject, well photographed, and exposed and the mystery of it explained to us..the viewers! Quite re-assuring!
