You can't go wrong with a good reflection shot.

RE: Morning photo outing

Nice tree reflections-humorous at the same time-there's more of a blue sky in the reflection than in the sky.

RE: Morning photo outing

Reflection shots are seemingly easy but not actually, at least not for me. Someday I'll get the exposure right to show the sky both real and reflection.

RE: Morning photo outing

That would be tough trying to get right exposure of the sky or reflection. as it is 2 different. From doing it myself its one or the other, but with landscapes mostly. There are filters that help to meter the scene better. A Circular Polarizer or Graduated Neutral Density. I have both and there are all kinds of them for different situations. The CP is on my lens all the time but I haven't really had the opportunity to shoot a scene like yours. Its like broken up around here where I live. I love reflections and you have caught them well.

and if I have said it wrong, someone please correct me. I'm still learning.

Here is a link that might be useful: Basic Polarizer n Graduated filter info
