Most of my regular readers will recognize this image... It's the house on Assateague Road. But, you've never seen it quite like this. I altered the image on my iPhone 5 using a little app called Water Effect, a neat little app that does, for the most part, one thing -- add a reflection of an image to the original, and optionally, apply ripple to the reflected image. There are a number of Aviary-powered image editing tools you can apply before adding the reflection. The app itself is fun, if limited and a little flawed -- close examination of the image shows a very clear line where the normal image and the reflected image join.
Limitations on the app that I'd really like to see addressed include the ability to adjust the amount of the ripple, and some ability to tweak the position of the ripple relative to the original image.
I'm playing with the ad-supported version, which is really quite annoying, as ads pop up frequently, often right in the middle of your work. The upgrade to the "pro" version for 99 cents removes the ads, but that's all.
UPDATE: After some further experimentation, I’ve found that careful cropping and selection of the source image, rather than using the “default” crop, makes it possible to eliminate the distracting line through the middle of the picture. I’d still like to have some control over the “amount” of ripple, though…
