This was an experiment of mine to try to achieve realisic looking reflections in windows.
I first needed an image of someone looking out of a large enough window and found a great stock photo from Neriah-Stock on DA, although I did extend the windows for a wider view. I then went hunting for a colourful night time view of a city and you can't go far wrong with a view of New York City, this one coming courtesy of Riot-Stock on DA. Not a lot of my images are complete without making use of one of the Cosmos skies from Resurgere, and this one comes from their Cosmos Pack 2 on DA.
The models reflection was added by cutting out a copy of her, transforming her horizontally and setting the opacity to 35%. The reflection of the apartment was created by taking a photo of a room of mine and setting the opacity to 11% which ensured the reflection was fainter than the model.
I'm not sure whether the lens flare was going to work, but it seemed that something was missing when I removed it ... so it stayed as part of the final image.
Enjoy ... Tony.
