Am I too late?
so many great shots! and i'm still learning to operate my camera and software...
Our attempts to speed things up didn't bring us a lot of material.
So may be it's a sigh that we need to slow down, relax and reflect on thibrings our next topic: Reflections.
The goal is to shoot things reflected.
A pond, a pool, a puddle, a shiny car, a chrome casserole, or, kh-m, a mirror or store window - all those will do.
A polarizer definitely can be a great helper here.
For the rest of the basic rules and index please check out this sticky.
Let's get reflected!
Better late than never? First photo is not an effect, it is a true reflection of a moonrise. The sun was setting behind me, which gave that beatifull color in the sky. Second image was a stump in a pond that just caught my eye.
My first try at assignments...
I wish I would have paid attention more to what was around. It wasn't until I got home and uploaded that I saw the fire engine in the reflection. I wish I would have gotten just the engine. I was more worried about getting the kids (who were not complying). Oh well, just another lesson for me to pay attention to my surroundings
Taken yesterday at a place called "Giving Pond":
Took this one a little earlier this year:
It's a good shot, but you're in violation of the Code: fresh pictures only
I was looking in the window of a fireboat house. I'm not sure if the nickname of that water cannon is SKUM or if that's just a clue to the "boss".
Anyway, I thought it was a pretty good reflection..

Old thread, but the photo is fresh! Seagull peering through window at a restuarant. Seems to be thinking "you gonna eat that?"
Very neat effect, thanks!
No sir I used nothing that shot is straight out of my Olympus E500, unless you are talking about using a circular polerizer, then yes I did use one!
No sir, I was talking about the shape of the reflector and the effect it provided...
I have two - neither spectacular, so maybe I need to look into this polarizer thing? Insight appreciated to make a reflection in water as beautiful as ones I've seen earlier in the thread.
THe obligatory bird shot:
A shot of the house :
