Point & Shoot Competition #60 - Reflections

Reflections - anyway you want us to see them. It doesn't look like this has been done before on my quick search.

The usual rules apply


The Rules

1. HAVE FUN!
2. Cameras:
No cameras with sensors larger than 1"
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use
No interchangeable lens cameras
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1 kg

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above)
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder cameras
Interchangeable or Fixed-lens 110 film SLRs and Pentax Q
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6 and 6x4.5 Medium Format "Folding", "Box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras (subject to 1 kg weight limitation)

3. Entries will close on Nov 30, 2012.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels

5. Max of 3 image entries per person, from archives or fresh. Entries may be withdrawn or changed

6. Listing camera brand & model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

7. Post processing is fine.

8. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date, and judge’s next competition

9. HAVE FUN!

I'm not sure it's proper to show your balls so early in a contest!

(great pic!)

May as well get it all done at once with #3 from the XZ-1.

I'm looking forward to all the forthcoming images. This group never ceases to impress with the variety and quality of images from PnS cameras

.....and great theme from the kayak queen

I see - you're trying to scare off the competition to make judging easier for me... But it would have been a ton easier if you had submitted 1 great photo & 2 bad ones instead of 3 great ones! I think I like the third one best, until I look at the 2nd one again

I had to throw in a kayaker to influence the judge.

Great entries from Anton and G.T. This competition is off to a very reflective start and can only get better.

Now that was not at all obvious

Great entries, ivoire and G.T!
Anton, your image is not showing up for me.
- It is now. Wonderful serene feeling.

Indeed a fun theme!
So, I got my entries lined up as well.


La Défense, Paris



Ghent



Christmas ornaments


A bit early and kitschy but pretty cute, I think. Even though I'm in it. Well, sorta


All with Panasonic FX500.

Thanks!

Thank you for the kind words, Bart. But there's some tough competition in this contest, including your photos. Love the night shot, especially!

Geez... Everyone is off and running, and I'm still sitting here on my hands. Like Ron said, the competition in here is pretty tuff already.
