Images of Water - John Hsu
After taking pictures for sixty years, I have concluded that the ideal photo-art is a water reflection composition.  The slow movement of the water surface is almost like the stroke of painter’s brush, for example, the wave created by water fountain or duck movement. With the help of digital editing, these water reflection images can look like paintings. To differentiate from most other reflection photographs, my photographs are comprised of almost entirely water reflection images. This provides a vast sky and cloud images that easily come together to form a complete water reflection composition.
