I love the different ways the 2 kinds of glass reflect the same sky differently in this shot. Very interesting how much texture it adds. Well seen and well captured!!

Wow! I love the composition here! The sky is great and catching one so close and so many far away adds amazing depth to the shot.

This is a very well executed long exposure shot. Live the vibrant colors, and it looks like the exposure was just long enough to get a smooth effect with uniform brightness. I probably wouldn't have thought to do this myself. This is GREAT!

Originally uploaded by Edgar Thissen

Had to laugh at this one. I hate to get political but it reminded me of a certain US President and British Prime Minister who shall remain nameless... :-)



Originally uploaded by Motja

I just love the honey colored glow, and the perspective so high above water is very unique.

I just love the mood of this shot and the strength of the lines of the grass against that polorized sky. Striking image!

A hard worker...apparently even bees have 9 to 5 jobs.



Originally uploaded by Ralf Stockmann

I just really love the colors here and sort of random glance captured forever feel this gives me. It's an image without a point and it is proud of it - that's what makes this image so amusing. Great job!

Half Dome

Half Dome

Originally uploaded by SdosRemedios

SdosRemedios describes this work as follows: This is a polar projection of Half Dome from Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park, California. It is a composite of 13 photographs.

First, you have to view this in original size to fully appreciate it! This reminds me of how small and fragile our world is. Everyone should see this image, it is truly an astounding work of art!

Cloud Gate

Cloud Gate

Originally uploaded by ancawonka

ancawonka described this image as follows: This reflection of the sky was shot in Chicago, at the sculpture known as the "Cloud Gate" (but which everyone just calls "The Bean"). It's a highly reflective polished chrome (?) sculpture. If you look in my photo stream at the photo just before this one, you can see the whole sculpture.

I think the streaks in the lower right are dirt on the surface of the sculpture from where people touched it. I wasn't sure if I should leave them in or not - but I think without them, this looks like just a photoshop effect, when, in fact, it's real life.

I just love the "horizon" of the reflected area and where it intersects with the sky. Very well seen ancawonka!
