This shot was taken in Duo Yi Shu. Capturing the image was a memorable experience. While I was busy composing the shot like those in image 37, I noticed that the sun's reflection was slowly moving over the water. I realized that it would be an interesting composition when it finally hit the correct spot.

I waited and made sure that I had used a smaller aperture, such that the reflection would have that radiant glow. I metered the gray area of the field, to avoid reading the hot spots in the scene.

After processing the raw files, I guessed my little trick worked, what was presently surprising though was the blue reflection as well as those sparkling little dots.
