    I seem to have taken a few shots with reflections lately. Thought it would make a good throwdown…

      Beautiful shot. One of those that just makes you want to be there. Stunning reflections have captured the colours wonderfully.

    North Park Sunset.

    Some subtle reflections, though sitting there watching it in the still peace and quiet could cause one to reflect.

      Nice take on the theme Robert. Awesome sky. Definitely a place for reflection.

      Wow I love this image. The reflection appears to have more contrast and structure than the actual scene above it. The water must have been so still. Also like the shrubbery (bottom right corner). I think it adds something by referencing the line of dry grass through the middle of the picture. I also really like the circle of trees/reflections in the middle. Great shot.

      Thank you Dahlia. I posted them from Flickr so wasn't sure how to label them. The first one is a reflection in a puddle of water. The green shiny thing is foil I think but it had deteriorated I guess and turned green. It was the colours that attracted me.

      The second one is obviously buses in a bus depot where I work. Walking through the yard I noticed the reflections in the windows – would've worked in the leading lines section too.

      The third one is the floor in the re-fuelling/cleaning bay. The bus wheels sit in the ruts to guide it through the bus-wash. I saw the green tree reflected in the grimey water puddle and thought the contrasting colours were fascinating.

      The last one is of a bus parked beside a huge flowering shrub. It looked like the shrub was growing inside the bus.

    Boat reflection

    Here's a fun one from the marina. Still waters are often found there in the morning during winter.

    (Robert, I like the way you framed the trees.)

      Nice shot. Having transplanted my blood for sea-water back when I was a young surfie, I could look at images like this for ages. Wish I was there climbing aboard. The still waters of early morning are so calming for the soul. Good place to reflect on reflections!

    • #335824

      3pco, this is a tremendous reflection photograph.  I really like the lines, the contrast in your black and white and the ability this image has to keep me looking.  What a terrific photograph.  Thank you.

      Love both of them Dianne, especially the first one. I like the way we only see the reflection and not it's source. Also another good example of ‘layering' (I made that term up) with the different bands of texture laid atop each other. Love the colouring in the reflections in the second image.

    • #336499

      Tersha, these two images are excellent reflections.  They are both equally interesting.  In the first image, the bright band of colour really makes a statement between the grass and dirt.  The second image is wonderful because of the variation of the reflection.  I really like both of these images.  Very nice.  Thank you.

    • #336091

      Frogdaily, wonderful images.  Your reflections are wonderful, although I am in agreement with Graham, the last one is outstanding.  For the first two pictures, what kind of a surface are you using, to create the reflection?  For the last one, Graham said it perfectly.  However did you accomplish this?  Thank you for fantastic images.

        Thank you so much Horatio for your kind words. I used black acrylic to help create the reflections.

      Kent, I'm a sucker for the ‘blood vessel-like' complexity of tree branches and the way they frame the house against the gorgeous blue sky with the little splashes of orange in the windows makes this a lovely shot. I'm guessing clear blue skies are far and few between over there at the moment? I can see the window reflections but is that light reflected on the tree trunk too?

      Love this Robert. You caught the colours at the right time. These pinkish orange colours stay for a few seconds, don't they?

  • #335825

    Graham, great idea, reflections.  What a fantastic group of reflections in this throwdown.  How exciting to see all the photographs that every member has posted.  Each one is a terrific as the next one.  Thank you everybody for these beautiful photographs.

      Terrific shot Horatio. Love the atmosphere from the light in this pic. Might have called it ‘Purple Haze'.

      Love the golden glow Horatio. Was it reflection of the light from Sodium vapour lamps?

      • #336375

        Yes, this was the actual colour of the sodium vapor lamps.  There was a little fog, which added to the glow.  What made it very difficult for me, was the fact that some of the fishing vessels had these incredibly, blown-out bright, LED lamps, aimed right at the camera.  It would have been easier if some of you could have been at the harbour with me, so that I could have picked your brains.  Next time.

  • #336088

    Thank you Graham.  I like that name.  This harbour was located on the Oregon coast.

  • #336173

    One more from that same harbour.

      Gorgeous image Horatio. What settings did you use for this shot if I may ask?

      • #337407

        Absolutely Graham, the camera settings were:  ISO 64, 30mm, f/8.0, at 8.0 seconds.  I am thinking this was taken with the Nikon D-810.

      Rob, this is gorgeous.  I love the the clouds in the sky and those reflections, plus I really think the roof with the red, and the red reflection create interest.  Very nice.  Thank you.

    A Common Moorhen snapped this morning. It reminded me of this throwdown.

      Tobie, your bird images are absolutely wonderful.  The red on this birds head and his legs and feet create interesting features.  What a fantastic reflection.  Thank you for a great image.

        Thanks Horatio! I'm still not sure of the crop but I guess it does qualify as a ‘reflection' shot! ūüôā

      Certainly does Tobie. That rock reminds me of a brain or a walnut with the split down the middle.
      Thought of  you this morning when I saw a picture in my local paper of one of the most amazing looking birds I've ever seen. The Nicobar Pidgeon has recently been found living in North Queensland, Australia. It is a close relative of the now extinct Dodo bird. Amazing plumage. Google it!

        I did google it, thanks for that Graham! The moment I saw it I knew I snapped it somewhere and then found it under my shots at one of our local bird parks. It was one of many exotic birds kept in a huge aviary (Oct 2013). It could have been edited better but it was taken in my early days of photography and I'm too lazy to re-do it now ūüėČ

        It looks better when you click on it:

        • #337408

          Tobie, thank you for this image.  What a beautiful bird, with the most gorgeous plumage.  I hope they have a bunch of these birds in the aviary so that they can keep this bird from going extinct.  You may not have wanted to put too much time to re-edit it, but I think you do not need to.  This is a wonderful image.  Thank you.
