When capturing my photos, I angled the camera and tried to get as up close to my subject as possible. I learned that you can capture interesting images by not showing the main focus but being able to see it in the reflection. I think the strength in my photos was the composition. I think my strongest photo is the one by the water. I have been experimenting more with the way I take photos and find they are most interesting if I angle the camera and taking the reflection photos with the flash off. I can continue to improve the way I capture my shots. In the image, there is a good composition and you can see more in the reflection than you can see of the actual image. I struggled with taking reflection photos by the mirror. The flash created hot spots in one image. I created a successful composition by including different colors, and making sure the viewer's eye went all the way around the image. I enjoyed this assignment because you had to think creatively about where you could find reflection. It was frustrating taking pictures with the mirror because you had to find a way to take the photo without getting distracting information in the reflection.

Thanks for the tips, I will take your advice and reshoot it. As you can tell I am trying to learn reflection. : )

I like how there is texture in the water but I feel like there should be more color because it's mainly grey. You might want to boost the contrast. I like how you can see what's under the water still and how the tree is shown in the water but you can't see the actual tree.
