Reflections (Two Photographs)

In photography everyone experiments with reflections. With birds in water, they are especially sought after. In the photographs here you will see an issue with reflection, though whether this takes away from the photograph is another matter. I am speaking of diffraction, for example, if you put a pencil in water and it seems from the side to be broken in two, it’s a result of the bending of the wave of light. In the color version you can see that there is certain displacement in the reflection, while in the black and white there is almost none. So it’s quite possible for your audience to focus on the strange diffraction to the detriment of your photograph. You can avoid this by changing your angle of view (perspective) or taking more shots when the bird is in a better position.
