  #156 Reflections, No Mirrors!

      Extra Info: Because of various obstructions I was limited to positioning my car in our drive at an acute angle to the subject in order to get this shot of my neighbours magnolia. Also, despite dark glass in the car window, I had to adopt an oblique camera angle to avoid flare and the inside of the car " ghosting" in the background. Inevitably there was some distortion but this was my best effort. The tight crop was necessary to exclude the boundary wall and other clutter but I included part of the door pillar and car door to prove I wasn't using a mirror!

    I was reading the details of your photo shoot and my bones began to ache just from the thought of it. If it has been me I would probably still be stuck inside the car in a contorted position. I think this shot was too good an image to be considered a reflection.

    Well, that's not fair! (Placing your entry last in your own challenge theme.) I demand a re-count.

    Are you sure that window is legal, lol! Reminds me, I need to wash my car!

    Despite your efforts, the image still doesn't "read" as a reflection - couls as well be something seen though a window. In any case the scene could use a strong focal point.

    A lot of trouble yielded an excellent result.

    you have a good result. i would have tried to get more an angle frame of the window and door post as I missed it entirely on the slide show run through.
