Hi Mr. Roger Deakins, 

Can you tell us how did you achieved this reflection in this shot from Kundun. Was it done in camera or in the post?.  And kindly talk about the thoughts went behind before framing this shot.

That shot was achieved using an optical overlay in post. Where was the camera? The framing was simply to give a balance between the reflection and the boy. We had decided that the framing in general would be square and quite formal, so that is why the reflection is centered.
