Below we present some outstanding examples of reflection photography, a compendium of small artworks, some of them from extremely popular monuments and tourist attractions, that otherwise we wouldn't show in this web.
Throughout the time we have been collecting and keeping stunning images for this special post, from the four corners of the world. Compositions with one thing in common and an artistic twist thanks to water, mirrors and other reflecting surfaces:

Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia. When Angkorian society began, Paris and London were not much more than elaborate villages.

Venice, Italy. Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go. (Truman Capote).
