#244 Reflections
Posted By: NaClH2O, 05-14-2013, 04:21 PM

Well, for this challenge theme I was thinking REFLECTIONS. Primarily because I've never met a reflection I didn't like.
Any and all interpretations are welcome. Hopefully, it is broad or vague enough to elicit your interest and entries.
Good luck, let's have fun and look forward to your pictures.

The Challenge will close on Wednesday May 22nd, 12 Midnight EDT.

The fine print....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread. If it's not obvious, explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme.
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge closes after 7 days, then allows for a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Samsung DSLR) camera will do.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, the winner will PM the #2 winner and pass the baton to that person to be the judge.

Previous weeks:
214 - Physical Strain, 215 - The Daily Grind, 216 - Colors of nature, 217 - Heavy Industry, 218 - Wisdom, 219-Surprise, 220 - Blue, 221-Vanishing Point, 222-Motion, 223-Juxtaposition, 224-Metals, 225-Firelight, 226-The [Not-So] Mundane, 227-Angles, 228-Theater, 229- Does not Belong 230-Breaking the Rules, 231-Cold as Ice 232-Selective Colour, 233- The Dark Side, 234 - Repetition, 235 - Dramatic Angles, 236- Dramatic Skies, # 237- Color and Contrast, # 238-The Human Shadow, #239- Nature does have its casualties, #240- A Working Class Hero, # 241 Wild Spaces, # 242 Old, Ancient, Antique, 243 - Wired.

I arrived late
Here is a photo of Kuala Lumpur twin towers at dusk, from a nearby park.
I shoot it handheld with high ISO (When you are in rush, that's the only option to not loosing this perfect scene )

@ Deep Throb, one question: which photo do you want to submit for judging? I'm assuming "Outside looking thru"?

NaCl(my job is going to be hard enough w/o having to judge more than one photo per person)H2O
Oooops, didn't know there would be judging. Yup that would be fine.

There are some great shots here... going a slightly different route... it's more about the reflections of color in this shot.
