Not really understanding the theme I Googled  it. A very  interesting and thought provoking theme. Should be some interesting images forthcoming. If I wasn't  off on holiday tomorrow I'm sure it would fill my time with a good degree of head scratching.

Apart from the obvious  shots of pictures in frames somewhere in the shot I would think the possibility of having such an image in your back catalogue  is pretty remote.

Interesting theme and one I am not familiar with.
Out and about on the North York Moors tomorrow. Will have to get the thinking cap on and look that bit deeper whilst out.
Tried a quick google but nothing there inspires me.

Had a go this morning, when a possible 'picture in a picture' stared me in the face. Well, sort off.

Haven't seen the result yet, not had time. It is a hand held high ISO shot, so I don't hold out too much hope.

Since I came up with the topic I thought I better put a picture in as well. We have done lots of things with this topic at the local camera club. We used mirrors and empty picture frames. Because I was sitting in front of my PC thinking about what to do, this came out as the result.

Well, hmm. I tried a few ideas for the Mise en Abyme bit, not too successfully to be honest. So I had a look at the Droste effect. I was pleased to see that there was an Adobe tool to do it, and then down about the fact that it was withdrawn a few years ago and although it is archived on the web it won't work with PS CC or any of the older versions of Elements that I have. Then I remembered that some time ago I was given a copy of Filter Forge 4 standard which I had never installed. As luck would have it my key was still OK and there is a Droste filter. So I mucked about with it a bit. Looks like you ideally need a circular object to start with, which is why so many of the examples on line are of lenses and clocks. I did one of my watches from an old image. Not managed to upload it so far. I keep getting 'Camera Craniums is not working' messages.

Just got it to work:

All the mirrors in the bathroom of my hotel gave me an idea. I could see myself at least three times, but sadly could not 'fit' it into my camera as I had to stand too close. I decided on a selfie-double and experimented.

Am now glamping, and have to post it, before everyone wakes up and the WiFi slows to a halt.

Well Done Reinardina!!, Well deserved. To be honest Droste is a Dutch brand so it makes sense you won.

Thank you guys.

I had never heard of 'Mise en Abyme,' but had seen the effect regularly. Never heard the term 'Droste effect' either, but of course I know Droste! Have known it all my life, and loved it all my life.

Will set up the new competition now.
