***## Mini Challenge 268.. REFLECTIONS.## ***
Jun 13, 2012

Well we are off to a start, my subjest for this challenge is REFLECTIONS...let your creative juices inspire and awe us all ...I am looking forward to seeing you all enter and enjoy.

Rules

1) Enter up to 3 photos from any camera taken at any time. Let us know about equipment, settings and processing if you like.

2) The winner chooses the next mini challenge theme and selects the next winner and so on...

3) Please post your entries by replying to this original post rather than under someone else’s post - and change the subject line to the title(s) of your images or something like that to separate your picture posts from comments that someone may make about your post.

4) As usual, exhibition entries are encouraged, if you have interesting images to share beyond your three entries, or should you feel you are not able to host the challenge in the event that you win.

5) All entrants should check the results of the challenge and be ready to jump in with the next competition if they are the winner.

6) PLEASE feel free to make as many comments as possible. This adds to the fun and keeps people coming back. The challenge starts now and closes for entries and exhibits on Wednesday June 20th at 10pm SA time (GMT -8:00).

There will be examples in the next thread.
Cheers,
Jill

Hi Gary,

Many thanks on starting off this challenge. That first is absolutely exquisite, the wonderful blues in the water, and then the trees that make it absolutely picture perfect. The second too , where the stillness of the water gives a wonderful reflection, another winner.

Many thanks,
Jill

Hi Nigel,

Come on I think you have had long enough off for exhibitions...stop these excuses

Seriously the first is lovely, especially the way the reflections make a zig-zag line with the one side all orange & yellows and the other has reflections in green....soooo pretty !!

2. Here you have made this such a dreamy shade of blue, with the OOF decernable, but only just ...making this really appeal to the to all the creative juices.

3. Well the Lilyylil ...telling me you have time to create even a fantastic name for this appealing shot...well done Nigel

Thanks for those.
Cheers,
Jill

Hi Marti,

What a beautiful shot, the reflection is as perfect as the actual bird. I find the colour so pretty against the greys of the water. Certainly good enough to hang on the wall...a true test.

Cheers & thanks,
Jill

Those are great, Sam! Just for fun, try rotating the second one 90 degrees to the right.

Re: Sam's REFLECTIONS ( Sam's 3)
In reply to Sam_Oslo, Jun 14, 2012

Hi Sam,

What beautiful images. The first , I enjoy the line of vanishing trees, with the reflection that ends in almost a point. The colours are breathtaking.

2. this one is so unusual, and is an absolutely perfect mirror image, yet one has to look twice to see the dividing line. I like Gary's idea of the 90 degree turn...that would really become a puzzle.

3. Another perfect image in this beautiful setting.

Thanks,
Jill

Hi Jill,

Here is old film picture of my Dad in the mirror. It was an accidental picture - did not know about the reflection until the roll was developed.
