Hi sorry to disturb you all. I was wondering if there is a way to deal with reflection from water? I took a photo of this fish with my canon powershot.

1) Circular Polariser may help alittle.

2) Alternatively, you can try to lower your angle of the shot to minimise the amount of reflection.

3) Photoshop.

Above are just some methods.

A circular polarizer is the best bet. Just observe the properties of light.

Shoot the fish out of the water. Your best bet. ^^"v

Use a polarizer filter. It helps a lot.

you can also choose a part of the pond without the reflection

but in this case, a water proof camera would be ideal
imagine a face to face shot ...

CPL! Or bring your camera into the water and shoot the fish. (remember to put your camera in a underwater enclosure)
