    Still looking for someone to model by candle light, but walking through a shop today I noticed what I thought to be an interesting reflection.

    Don, this is great! thumb.gif
    May I suggest to crop it very tightly to the window, so the clutter of the street doesn't distract? ne_nau.gif

    Well, I might crop it to the roof, but I like the double reflection. Half the fun, IMHO. Two for one!mwink.gif

    Hmmm...I figured the more reflections the better. :D

    Here is a tighter crop. Better?

    I agree. In the original there was so much clutter I didn't even see the second one, it's very faint. Now, with a tighter crop it's clearly visible. Good job! thumb.gif

    A bit late to the game
    I know I'm a bit late to the assignment but I figure I'd submit anyway. Thanks.

    Very few assignemnts have a cut off date, so it's almost never late - as long as the pictures are fresh;-)
    Thank you, nice entry! thumb.gif
    I would only suggest to crop out the top right corner since it really doesn't bring much for the theme and only consumes the space...

    Just had a chance to look at the pic some more. Thanks for the suggestion, Nick. I took it and ran with it; how does this do?

    I was just very excited about me posting stuff that I just uploaded and started posting... I haven't done anything to the photos, no retouching or anything - the watermark is my watermark on SmugMug...

    But I will def. start working and doing light retouching to my photos for class...

    Thanks...

    BTW, here is a link to all the raw photos that I shot yesterday, so please, feel free to take a look and see what you think... I know this is not the whipping post, but I'm ready for everything. clap.gif

    I'll flag that 2nd one for some more processing time when I get home, but I had to pump it up quite a bit to get it that visible!

    Who-ho!! Passed my first assignment!! And I've got time to go out shooting tonight!! :ivar
