Challenge #2 in the Untitled series. Hosted by Stevie Boy Blue.
Challenge has finished
All makes and models/type of camera welcome. Any ‘WILD’ Animal or Bird as seen in daylight, at the side of, or over water. Entries must contain both the subject and its whole reflection, not just the reflection itself. See example shots and note that more than one subject in the same image is fine. Please read ALL the rules before entering. When judging images in the voting stages, please pay particular attention to the level of detail of fur/feather/skin, etc., of the subject – especially the overall clarity of its reflection and smoothness of the water. The more mirror-like and detailed the overall picture, the higher the score should be given. Please post images no more than 1600 pixels on the longest side. Anything larger WILL BE deleted!
