So far I took only very traditional reflection shots! Haven't found anything spectacular, or different. Took some autumnal shots this morning, some of which include the duckpond, so I hope they came out a bit more ... well, you know ... not tóó traditional.
I'm now going to have a look at them.

You can't say I do not immediately spring into action, when prompted to enter for the competition!

It is one of the run of the mill reflections, as I did not have the time/luck/ ideas to go for something special!

Not having any lakes or standing water available, I resorted to my old favourite - shop, or in this case, bank, windows. I thought it was a interesting juxtaposition.

So you don't have to go the entry thread to look at it, it's here:

Downloaded a trial of CS5 so I can see what I'm missing; did it partly in that and partly in Photoplus, finished it off in Elements. There has to be an easier way  :uglystupid2:

I've gone for the slightly subtle reflection but with a distinctly unsubtle subject matter!

Managed to get an entry done this week whilst the other half is getting ready to go to a black tie do with work, luckily I was not invited  :tup:
 
I had thought about going down to the river as it’s a really still night and thought I might get some reflections in the water, but I see I’ve already been beaten to that idea with some excellent shots.

So I’m in with this ‘mirror mirror on the wall’ but actually the mirror was stood on a table!!

You can change your mind as much as you like provided there is a picture up by midnight Monday. I think some people don't post early for this very reason.

Well thats my entry posted  :D

It wasn't what I was planning on doing but am quite pleased with the picture....



I was just playing around taking shots of anything reflective in my office and it wasn't until I looked at this shot on my PC that I realised it had a couple of "reflections" - the one in the head of the lamp, but then the pictures too (which weren't placed for the shot, they are always there). There's 4 generations of my family in those pictures - my grandad (who is no longer with us), my dad, me and my son.

Good luck all  :tup:
