Reflections can make a difference in your photo

Do rainy days and Sundays get you down?

Don't let them! Embrace the photo opportunities afforded by the puddles. The rain, and resulting puddles can have a massive impact on your images. Use reflections wherever possible for a different take on otherwise well-known scenes.

On a recent trip to Paris we had rain... and when it had cleared up at night, we found ourselves walking up towards the iconic structure, the Eiffel Tower.

Ahead on the path were a series of puddles, and as we approached them we saw the reflections of the tower in the puddles.

The end result was one of my favorite photos I have ever taken
