The page describes a charge located above a single conducting surface. What happens if the charge is between two conducting surfaces? Does the bottom plate, along with the imaginary charge get reflected across the plate above the real charge? I've typed a simple diagram below.

(+) imaginary charge

------------ imaginary plate

(-) imaginary charge

========== real plate
