Hello everyone!

This months subject: Reflections

Rules: This is strictly a photography contest! No photochopping, but contrast, brightness, levels and other minor touch-ups (healing tool will be allowed for film and print scans). Please avoid any text on the photograph, except at most a copyright statement, remember distractions like text can take away from the composition. Digital and film photography are both allowed. Only one submission per user will be allowed. Your entry must have a reflection of some sort in it. The reflection can come from any material, but it must be present. (hint: this would NOT be a good competition to use a polarizer in ;))

Awards: 500 Points to the winner, and choice of next weeks competition topic. 100 points for the runner up (only will apply when competition reaches 5 submissions).

Length: Competition closes Saturday, March 27th at 10:00 PM EST. Voting lasts five days after close of competition.

The winner needs to PM me the topic for the next competition (please try to think up topics while voting goes on, incase you win).

Thanks guys.

Axe is right, for the record. This was shot on Ilford 400 b&w film, and hand processed by me. I know I should move into this century photographically, but I really love the whole film proccess. There's nothing like the moment when you pull the negs out of the bath and you get 36 surprises.
;)

I can't wait to see the other entries. :)

OK, I feel better now! THanks for the clarification b_heyer. :)

dM: That is a great picture! I really like the use of focus to differentiate between the reflection and the reflectee. And the statue has a certain life-like quality when put in that position. Very, very nice! (The statue's grin made me laugh out loud!)

This is one of those examples where if you don't go looking for the photo, it'll come to you.

My actual target for this photo was one of the neighbourhood cats that keeps invading our yard and annoying our iguanas. Then, when I brought them up on the PC, the reflection in the back of the car just hit me..

So, here's my entry :)

Personally, I REALLY like dM's post.. I know mine won't win, I don't expect it to, but I thought this was kind of a neat picture. I was about 50ft away from the subject, and couldn't even see the reflections in the back of the car through the camera's viewfinder, so it was a little unexpected :)

I like Unflux's too, but I think dM's really hit the nail on the head with this one :)
