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).

Sorry if you misinterpreted my post, I was just saying that the point is for you to be satisfied with a great entry regardless if you win or not.

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!)
