Like this one very much...

I know this is very hard, and not alwyas possible... but it would be perfect (in my opinion) if it was captured slightly lower, and maybe a bit more closed up... or with a small cut, so you would have a perfect mirror effect :)

But it's a good work!

I know people that say that the picture should be 1/3 - 2/3 and others who prefer the perfect balance.
If you ask me, I still have no idea which one I like better. :hmm:
Maybe perfect balance but an upside-down photo? ;)
Anyway, the first 10k photos are difficult, then I will learn :P

Thanks a lot for your comment. :D

In my opinion that "rule of the thirds" is not applicable when you are trying to get a mirror effect on the picture...

Honestly, it all depends a lot... you may learn all the the composition rules, but in the end, the last rule is usually:
"Break all the previous rules you learned, whenever you feel you should"

So... Do it as you like it better! :D
If you personally are not 100% satisfied with this result, next time try to make it better... try other angles... try from different places... next to the ground or higher... just try differently in identical situations... And you'll get better and better...

Photography is supposed to be a pleasure... at least for me :D

And also photography is supposed to be a manipulation of reality: both of what is shown and ours :D

Adeus!
