This is great
With the calm seas acting as a mirror that's flat to gravity (if not exactly flat) the reflection of the engine flames indicates the spot directly below the booster. 
Because the ASDS is in view between the reflection and the booster body, it is seen that the booster is pointed beyond, and heading over, the ASDS. 
The landing burn is canceling that overflight motion to bring the booster to zero lateral velocity above the ASDS, and if the engine doesn't relight (something that hasn't happened in about 200 ASDS landings, it would fly safely over the ASDS and splash harmlessly in the sea, just as has been described. 
The reflection slides to the (not reflective) ASDS and the booster lands on it.
It's neat to have it so visible in the photos.

What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?
