Pretty, but the castle-hill reflection is off. Just as your canoe reflection is a simple vertical flip from the water line up, the castle hill from the water line up should be vertically flipped to create its reflection. (Stack some things on a mirror to see how reflections work.)

Dan is right, but you can correct this and have a great image.

Good Luck

Dan, CMYK, Nasirkhan (Your link did not work) but Googled some images to get an idea. I copied the tower, flipped it vertically and applied motion blur, to it. I also enlarged it more.I also worked underneath the boat reflection. Suggestions appreciated.

In the case of boat's reflection, you have to notice that the internal part must not appear on the water.

author says:

Thank you erikury, I worked over the boat's reflection again. I hope it looks ok this time.

Author the link is working perfectly , you should have to select 3 lines URL link starting from "http://thumb1" and ending "in-water-25574452.jpg" and paste into browser address bar.

Anyway it is just for your information

I don't think the castle-hill reflection should be more distorted than that for the canoe. More problematic, the castle-hill reflection implies that the lighthouse is surrounded by trees which is obviously not the case. Also the sky reflection has fewer clouds than the actual sky. And the castle-hill reflection is still unrealistically scrunched. Given the height of the hill, a simple vertical flip from the water line up would not permit any part of the lighthouse to appear in the reflection as long as the bottom edge of your image remains cropped where it is. [See your River source for an example of how a simple vertical flip from the water line up is the way reflections work.]

simple and realistic.

author says:

Dan: I added more clouds to the water. I flipped the image as you say, and you are right, the tower, should no reflect in the water. I really appreciate your comment, I learned something new this week about using reflections. That is why I love Pxleyes, it is a place to learn and to teach others. yes, I know, some do not like critics or comments, but guess what.......? I do. Thanks again Dan.
