Dark reflection

I’ve been wanting to try out a “dark reflection” photo ever since Mona’s behind-the-scenes look at one of her gorgeous photos. I took a rare venture into manual mode and am pleased with how it came out, but I don’t know why there are diagonal lines in the reflection. ( @mona65 )

Thanks for your views and comments -- always much appreciated.
It's really lovely. I have no experience with this set-up, so don't have any suggestions....just to let you know I really like the set-up.

Fabulous capture, Marcy! Thanks for mentioning Mona's "behind-the-scenes look"...I like finding out how people set up for different shots. I haven't done a dark reflection photo in quite a while, I really enjoy them. Fav! :-)

Awesome shot! Even though unexpected I like the diagonal lines, it makes it look as though the reflection has been drawn or printed! Did you use fabric underneath glass? Maybe it's the weave showing through?

@keidoesathing I did use black fabric underneath the glass, so maybe that is why. Thanks!

This is great Marcy. I find that a black background improves the mood of the picture. As the great painters of 1500's knew

Looks like the lines of the fabric weave to me too. Lovely shot, nicely done
