Ripples by Sybille Sterk

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…


Part of my new series of images for licensing on Arcangel-Images – use this code: SYST-0210

In this image I tried to re-create the Natural Mirror shot I did with my Hiptstamatic camera, it’s not quite the same, but it comes close. I used two shots of puddles with reflections and ripples and overlaid them plus textures and colour adjustments.

It is also part of my 1/52 project, week 17.

There’s something therapeutic about looking into a puddle and seeing the reflection in it change. I always imagine it to be a crack between (alternative) universes where I can catch a glimpse of what’s happening over there….

Created with my own photographs in Photoshop, no stock used.


ripples, rain, water, leaves, season, weather, april, spring, puddle, light, reflection, mirror, photo manipulation, altered art, sybille sterk, magpiemagic, textures, grunge

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
