puddles reflecting a long wall of red bricks. vs puddles showing the shadows of a long wall of red bricks.

Which above is more descriptive? Or anything else?

    "Shadow" is the dark spot caused by an object blocking the sun, so a puddle can't really reflect a shadow, just the object itself, so you could only use the first one.
