Slightly edited shot of a biker in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Taken with my Sony HX1. No editing besides some fiddling with contrast and saturation, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

This Summer could have been a Paradise for wicked Reflectahs, with the daily rain, the unbelievable amounts of water pouring down on the best city in the world and the giant wet spots all over the place, but unfortunately it takes a lot more than water in the streets to shoot wicked reflections. The most important thing besides the proper light, shadow and angle, is to make sure that there are plenty of the talented tiny puddle people present, who draw those awesome images onto the surface of the water with the light of speed and really tinytiny brushes. Or did you really think that water reflections can look as exciting as they appear on my Flickr stream without the help of little wicked wizards and their magic powers? And all they ask in return for their services is a pack of these little cocktail-umbrellas, that always try to poke your eye out when you leave them in the glass while drinking, seems that they don't like getting wet either, lol :)

Have a wicked weekend :)

I've made a wicked reflection movie of this puddle too, check it out on my YouTube channel, thank you :)
