I have recently been developing a macro to create ripples in a reflective water surface. Here is an example using the screes besides Wastwater in the English Lake District. The original was a scanned very old slide (with the accompanying loss of quality), but I thought it lent itself to this treatment. I flipped the image of the scree and applied the ripples macro to it before merging the two.

Not bad at all John, I'm getting a gentle breeze causing the ripples.

Here is a sample (still work in progress) I crossposted in the other thread related to the ripples macro.

FYI: Here are the adjustment layers I added to the water layer:

  • @John Rostron's ripple-equations
  • motion blur
  • gaussian blur
  • exposure adjustment
  • the built-in ripples live filter for a more 3d-ish global movement of the water surface

Cheers, Marc
