Remarkable Reflections in Photography

The use of reflections in photography is always a fascinating aspect providing symmetry and an artistic element to a photograph. Reflections can often be the painterly filter effect to a photo, or the mirrored half that in water produces an organic flurry of light and colour, and the balance of reflections can make for an aesthetic advantage to a photograph.

So, whatever effect you are after, hopefully these remarkable photos here can inspire you to explore this further.
