    Well I hope I do this right.. The first small pic is a shot of this old Village, which is pretty much a ghost town... maybe five or six Buildings here, and believe only one is in use.. ( A garage just outside the shot )...anyway, I think the shot was fairly strong, but liked the water more ...

    I feel the reflection tells the story here more then the actual shot, and more important , ( for me ) just sets a mood, perhaps nostalgic/ sad/ a different look in general....?? If you don't know its nearly a ghost town, who know what your mind would conjure up lol...



    So what I did was just capitalize on the Waters Reflection, and let it tell whatever story the viewer wants to make of it...

    I look at this second shot ( Larger ) Finished shot , as a type of ABSTRACT... Let the mind wander with this view of the reflection in the water..

    Nice effect, but the composition is boring- too many twos or something.
