6. I like how the poles blends into themselves in their reflection.

Have to look to see where the reflection actually begins.

Where is that? Very pretty area.

7. I dunno 'bout that. Well, about mine anyway.

I know some more wonderful, awe inspiring photos are to come. As is the usual. We have a great bunch of photographers.


I'm just nervous. Trying something new and all that.

Thanks, Mira! Your words mean a lot to me.

12. Thanks!

I used my iPhone and kinda had to keep jamming on the button (getting multiple shots), while keeping the thing still in about 3 seconds. I'm surprised there's any composition to it at all.

I've tried it before, but never with an iphone. Glad you came here, and persevered in posting your photo. Welcome.
It's a great ride to participate!

16. Thanks again, Mira.

I'm actually surprised at how well an iPhone can do. I've tried shots like that with my p&s but it wants to focus on the window and not what's outside it. I'll give it a go with my Nikon one day.

For what an iPhone can do. I've been seriously shooting with it from very early on.

17. I like the B&W I'm seeing.

One sorta dark and twisty , one bucolic, and one that gives me the feeling of time rushing by.

Callalily - I love boat reflections!

Elfin Yeti - I like the suitcase mirror, make-do feel of the clown applying make-up. There's a story there.

I'm sitting this one out. I'm still trying to figure out my camera. Today is not so bitterly cold, so I may go for a long walk and practice.

21. You have time

if you don't enter, which I hope you will re-consider, at least post a first photo with the new camera.

All I saw was reflections this past week. It's funny how our eye gets honed when we have an assignment.

46. I have a bunch of reflections pictures that I took...

unfortunately, there wasn't a USB cable with my camera as there should've been. And I've been up to my eyeballs grading, so I haven't had a chance to go get one.

Hopefully this weekend!

Awesome photos Y'all! Seriously! They are all really great! I'm still trying to decide for sure if I want that one or the one I posted before. I've never submitted to any photo contest before so this is quite fun! Good luck all! I'm glad I don't have to decide.
