Afsolutely real and very well done in terms of moment captured, light and composition! Congratulation Paul!
I love this photo, I even blogged about it here if you'd like to check it out:
The water surface is like natural mirror and I can feel such tranquility of British Clumbia! We must protect all the precious beautiful environment that Nature has given us.
I am so glad you were able the save that area from the wrecking ball ! Mother nature never ceases to amaze me of her beauty and majesty and you took a beautiful picture as well. Thanks. And yes I would like to have that on my desk top as well.
I copied and pasted it in Word with a little editing. I printed it on a 11 x 17 . Now its on the fridge at our office. Abugov Kaspar in Calgary !
Wow, beautiful reflections! You can feel how serene it it.As a high school student with a passion for photography I always turn to National Geographic for inspiration, and it never lets me down!

@Mairead K. You have a beautiful site, Mairead. As Rebekah's comment above says: the narrative adds so much--it's like taking a photography course as you go through your pictures. Your pictures remind me that photography is art!
