      Thanks for the helpful comments :-) .

SteveBee - I think she was looking at my dog who had gone somewhat ahead of me as I'd stopped to get my mobile phone out when I saw the jogger coming. I only had chance for one shot.

      Thanks very much all :-) .

Ysal - We were walking our dog in the opposite direction to the jogger on the path above hers. LOL, I'm not sure about freaking out but her eyes are just about shut :-) .

      Thank you all for the generous comments :-) . I was running out of time when I took this. It seemed like a good idea at the time LOL.

mrsawyer - I was a bit disappointed when I got home that the glass was so much in focus. I guess I could have pre focussed but I never thought of it at the time. I was too busy feeling a bit of a Wally with my back to the lovely view and shooting as quick as possible with my camera in a big tumbler!

kerszkavet - I'm afraid my camera doesn't have a manual focus and the great depth of field created by the sunny day, small sensor and 24mm gave a region in focus from the inside of the glass to the '9' on the door.

      Thank you all so much for the lovely congrats :-D . Albey gave a big WOOF when I told him you had voted him into 1st place :-) . I think he is as delighted as I am.

I know what you mean about the highlights. They irritated me too. Caused by the texture of plastic he was made from.

      I'm really happy you like Albey's photo :-).

jomari - I was a little concerned that the smiling dog was a little distracting and considered toning him down somehow but I'm glad I decided not to now :-) .

dk - he's 1/4 poodle so can be quite a handful when he's more full of energy. We had to catch him at the right moment ;-) .

He wasn't comfy for long I'm afraid. He was whisked back upstairs to his spot on the side of the bath shortly after this photo was taken :-) .

      That's because there aren't any. The rules say that if we take more than one exposure then we have to state it in the Extra info. Unfortunately it can be confused (as I think you have done) with parts of two different photos brought together. This photo was taken with two different exposures on a tripod and they were blended together as the exposure latitude on my small sensor couldn't cope with the brightness range of the scene. people with more modern or larger sensors or using onboard HDR wouldn't need to state this in the Extra Info. It's a bit of a disadvantage to us older small sensor camera users.

      Thanks very much for the comments both.

Qixil - Sorry about the slightly distracting title. It was my homage to the Amazon comment I read that persuaded me that I had to buy this duck :-) . It read :-

"TOO. MUCH. CUTE!!!!!!!!, WARNING.
THIS TOY IS DANGEROUSLY CUTE. SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME IN THE BATH WITH IT MAY CAUSE CUTENESS OVERLOAD.

IF YOU DO GET CUTENESS OVERLOAD:
STEP AWAY FROM THE DUCK, I REPEAT, PUT THAT DUCK DOWN AND LEG IT! "

Yes, it was all in caps :-) .

      I'm really pleased you all like my entry. Thank you :-) . I hope the castle will live on in some form or other for another 900 years.

I put the castle high in the frame thinking that the size of the reflection would balance it in peoples eyes.. If not then it would still be on a vertical third but I can see what you mean. I'll try and re-crop it.

lo - I tried shots from all sorts of angles and locations till I decided on this one. It is knows and 'the fairy castle' locally. Just type into google 'Fairy castle Wales' and it will come up :-) .

      Yes, Rare for this time of year :-) .
It would have been fascinating (and scary) to see it in action.
The castle tower out-leans the Pisa tower by more than twice as much!

We don't get many blue skies at this time of year so I wanted to make the most of it ;-) .

      Thanks very much Anthony. Yes, I's a shame he wasn't a bit more prominent. I did consider cloning some birds in but thought better of it. I tried a version with some railing in that corner but decided on the swan in the end. Yes, I darkened the blue in order to match it more closely to the colour of its reflection.

      Thank you both very much. I'm glad you think so Lo :-) .

John - I could have made it closer to Alex's original by toning the clouds similar to the original and changing the colours of the bricks etc. but I wanted to leave some of my own style in the photo as you suggested.
