Photo Contest: Reflections

Photography Posted by Staaan

Since the discovery or invention of reflection of light by Euclid, an ancient Greek Mathematician around 300 BCE, reflection has been a phenomenon or event observed in our daily life. Euclid stated that the light travels in straight lines reflecting from a surface at the same angle it hit it.

Here is the winner from a reflections contest 12 years ago:

You can check out the contest here:

http://www.pxleyes.com/photography-contest/11449/reflections.html

This contest is more like a practice of what we see every day. Reflections are beautiful sights to behold and we would like to see it play out on pictures. Take a photo of an object or anything showing its reflection on another surface.

Drop your best pictures to join the contest and show us what you have learned in the last couple of years. Or if you are new, get out there and enter your first shot of a reflection.

Good luck!

This was me... I wrote this comment. I had a number for a name. I connected using FaceBook. I don't know why. And I don't know why it gave me a number for a name. I understand you don't understand because I don't either...

Just want to tell you how much I appreciated this image...it's minimalistic feel and composition , rendering it into monochrome took it over the top. Thumbs up.
