Reflecting On Success
Reflections can help make an image pop. The strong greens in this image make the white egret feathers stand out well. To get good reflections in relatively still water is easy. Just be sure the sun is shining on the trees along the shoreline. That gives them good strong color that reflects well in the water. If the shoreline is in shadow, the reflection will not be nearly as strong and vibrant.
So with that simple rule, you can almost always get great reflections.
The behavior in this image helps to tie everything together. It provides visual interest, and captures a moment of movement and action.
