A rather large Pronghorn in Northern New Mexico. Processed in a couple of different phone apps to add water reflection and give a painterly look. There was no water in original.
All C&C welcome. Please click on image. Thanks.

I’m wondering if it looks better with the reflection or without. NSN is not allowing me to post an image in reply for comparison, so try blocking out the water to get an idea how it would look without the reflection. Thanks. I feel it is stronger without.

That's a good point Joe.  Taking the crop to the greens on the waterline, simplifies and keeps the eye on the Pronghorn.

Agree-better without the reflection, but a very nice rendition.

I'm going to 'buck' the trend here, and say that I prefer it with the reflection, for my tastes it gives an added dimension that I really like, Joe.  A click to bring in the dark surround really shows it off beautifully - with the reflection.  :)

For my taste, I really like the reflection Joe. I find it more interesting and a good balance. Mind you, I love all reflection's and will add my own with software for in here. This is another darn good use of those effects IMO. I like the textures and how it still gets that 3D look with the shadows in the foliage. Shadows always give a sense of depth and this works well, even if it is only slight. Everyone will see it differently and that's how it should be.

All the best Joe and looking at the original shot, excellent!
