This is an upside down view. Something different. I thought the pebbles in the water made for an interesting "sky." Some may like it, others will think I had too much wine. LOL

This is Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Canada.

F7, 1/100 sec, ISO 400, 24mm focal length, 3-stop graduated density filter.

  I think this is a gorgeous image and while I agree the stones in the water make an interesting patern I think the original is the one I like the best, great image though the reflection is so clear it really is hard to tell them apart.

  Love them both. The original is a bit easier to view but I love the creativity and uniqueness of the flipped one. It makes a good optical illusion image.

  HMMMMM!!! When I'm looking at the "flip" I like it best but when I look at the original I like it best. Oh My! I'm so confused! It must come from driving 14-1/2 hours yesterday! Oh, what the heck!!! I LIKE THEM BOTH, Ken. PS. What I meant was that I would see you on BP next week...which is now this week! :-) Now, did I confuse you? LOL. Great photo both ways! ^.^ Kitty

  Yep different for sure. You would have got a kick of me trying to stand on my head. I have to say I love the original much better. As we all know that is just an opinion. Your detail and then the canoes adding a pop of color. WOW.

  Ken, amazing exposure and color work but I'd definitely have to vote for the original; I think the flipped version is amazing and quite fascinating but I also found it a bit confusing, trying to figure out what I was actually viewing; maybe you're just getting bored with all of your great winning shots!!!!
