By making viewers see Witwers reflection and image, a popular detail in this move, it not only shows Witwers' expressions, but leads into his future and fate in the movie. Witwer is killed by Anderton in the movie. I think that by seeing his face in the precrime water shows how he will end up like the people who the precogs envision in their dreams, dead. This photo is from the point of view of Witwer as discussed above. It is a closeup, showing only the face of Witwer and the blurred bodies of the precogs. Since the precogs are shown, it is a four person shot. While this photo at first seems to be a photo of a detective with three precogs in the background, it shows and highlights a lot of important themes in this movie. It shows voice, fate, expression, and the views of civil liberties from Witwer. Witwer believes precrime is unjust and corrupt, we are able to see this through his body language, color, and lighting as seen through this photo.
