|That's funny... Yes I understand the perpendicular rule of reflections. I've tried explaining it here on TN a few times. I've had to learn it for my painting. It was just that you said you tried "straightening the peaks". If you had said straightening the image, or rotating to straighten I might have caught on but "straightening the peaks" was so baffling I just had to ask... sorry, I am slow sometimes. It is such a strong image, and the water line seems straight enough... I don't think anyone would have noticed. Using those ultra wide angle lenses can be tricky. Sometimes if they weren't held perfectly level then one has to "skew" the image a bit in pp... otherwise straightening one part often messes up another as you said. But I do love those lenses.
As to the saturated reflection. l have often seen the opposite effect... where one has used a GND on the sky so that the sky is nicely saturated and its reflection washed out. Your reflection is wonderful.
