Agreed, really nice shot, maybe I won't be able to come up with something...... Oh well, we'll see what happens :)
Anyways, great job Mike :)

Interesting shot, Mike. I like it.

I have nothing so far, but it may be fun to see what shots I can get when I put my dogs in front of a mirror...

Thanks Guys ... you are very generous. Hopefully with something to shoot down, the rest of the gang will now get going and do just that. The G10 image gets rather 'noisy' above ISO200 but the dim illumination in that room forced me to go for ISO400 and still the shutter speed came out at a massive 1/10th, it was a bit touch and go. Discovered along the way that the trick when taking these multi-reflection 'tunneling' shots is to get the camera positioned centrally in the mirror first and then worry about the subject. The poor old auto focus got a bit confused at times too!

Come on you sinners out there .... get your creative hats on and knock me off my perch!

Like it Mike, nice one.

robbon44, a great pano there, that would go on my wall! (I'm sure my mate in Greymouth said you can see Mt. Cook from the beach there).

Thank you, pierovera. It's not the best of the bunch but it's the only pose I got that matches the theme most.

Phoenix Jackson - that is such a fascinating shot...I can't work out how you did it in a single exposure!

Thank you. It's quite simple in theory. 10 sec delay, flash on one hand. Hit the shutter, position on the spot, hit the flash, then start panicking for the next pose. I wrote something about this if cared to read ^^

I couldn’t find a worthy subject for this month :( , this one is going to be hard because of so many really good entries.


Cheers
