More reflections taken in downtown Baltimore. This one includes the totally unreflected USCG Cutter Taney, a WWII-era ship that is now part of Baltimore's Maritime Museum.

As I started taking pictures here, a group of terns were flying in and out of my frame. I set my camera on rock-and-roll and kept the shutter button pressed whenever I saw them swooping across my viewfinder.

By the way, I didn't like the placement of the piling - it was at about the halfway point of the bottom of the image. So I cut-and-pasted it into the corner, and cloned over the "hole" it left with water and dock edge.USCGC Taney - original image

Here's the original scene in the small photo. For some reason, the piling location botherred me. With the piling in the corner, I think it serves as a "base" for the lower right corner of the frame.

What do you think?

hi Steve, nice reflection shots. Incidentally, I added "reflections" as one of our possible future projects.

As for the piling, I understand your reasoning for moving it to the corner, but the original position would have worked for me as well.

This is a great photo with a wonderful reflection! I totally agree with you on moving the piling. For me, the original photo was overpowered by its central positioning.

I think your relocation made a problem photo into a real Hingucker!
