Well, don't work Fridays as some of you may know so went to Stourhead Gardens today with camera looking for poss: pics for this weeks competition and have come away with this.

Two pictures merged to obtain the full bridge, bit of PP in Photoshop and thats about it.

The line across the water is natural where the water forms a very small weir and falls into the lake but it made a perfect cut line for the picture.

The Bridge Mirrored

Unless I get a wedding image tomorrow that fits I fear I won`t be making an entry this week. Too much on - car crashes, printer breakdown, wedding gear missing / turning up in strange places - week from hell. probably just as well as I`m off to Spain on Tuesday for 10 days so would not be able to necessarily vote / get on and set next week if I was lucky enough to win.

A perfect mirror image Jeff.

I'm still not sure what to do. I've got a 'water' one, a not too clear mirror image, but still a mirror image , and something with a double mirror image, which betrays my preoccupation of the moment.

Jinky, I hope things will get better from now on.

Reinardina,

Yes i had a few today, did not know what to take a picture of although i set the theme, had a  Moorhen on a nest but the mirror water was too ripply, couple of things in windows, Meh, so the bridge just fitted the theme. Took about 15 pics but tis one is made up of 2 horizontal shots merged.

If Jeff doesn't come back in time, I'd say, risk it. As long as it is a mirror image.

After nearly burning the house down whilst post-processing this on, heres my entry!!

A Trio of Pairs



I used 2 mirror tiles, stuck together and angled. Wanted 3 pears to reflect 2 times, giving 9 pears, but also to try to capture my now famous (or imfamous) reflection in my Ikea table.

I got what I set out to get, so thats good.

Funny, I recently found my black and white mirror tiles again, and have been working with them. Nothing came of it though, I'm not very good at 'studio' images. Lack the patience.

Still not sure which one to enter, but I'll get round to making up my mind today, I hope.

Thanks Jeff. I was going to go for a Kaleidescope type image with the mirrors and some fancy cut paper (like snow flakes you did as a kid) hence my question earlier about abstract. But I was setting up the mirrors and at the same time, arranging my fruit bowl after my Asda trip. A pear fell off onto the table beside the mirrors and I thought ah........that might work!

I have learned how to emphasise the reflection in the table to make it even more 'shiny'  but getting the marks off the mirror in photoshop was a nightmare. Mirror photography is very difficult, let me tell you!
