There are no manipulations/fractals here. This is the result of reflections of buildings in the water plus ripples and a refraction of sunlight striking the water at a certain angle. You can see here how it looks when the swan has moved a little further.

My entry for the contest.

Excellent and unique image, Raj. It really does look like it could have been manipulated with those squiggles in the water. A super find and photo.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

If you stare at an orange juice container because it says, "CONCENTRATE" might be a redneck.
