I initially did not want to use a reflected self-portrait, but I really liked the aperture in this. Thanks for a cool topic ChaplainBlake. Paying more attention to reflections in the literal and figurative sense has helped me make some fine captures the last couple weeks.

This particular picture was taken facing down into a silver platter. The background texture is the ceiling.

Title: f/5.6

Tech Data:

Camera Model: Canon 30D
Position: Handheld (standing)
Lens and focal length: Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II
Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/50

Flash: No
Post processing: Adobe Lightroom JPG conversion.

I made a preset with the following adjustments
WB: As Shot at 0 (jpg)
Tint: 0
Exposure -1.00
Recovery: 20
Fill Light: 75
Blacks: 23

Brightness: +45
Contrast: +73

Noise reduction: Neat Image, and some spot healing
Sharpening: 25
Lens Vignetting: Amount -100, Midpoint 20

Not sure if this is enough of a reflection.

This picture was taken at mothers day weekend while enjoying nice sunny weather with family. Nature was waking up and especially insects were active. So I spotted this bush full of these completely black bugs.

But because this black creature is so shiny you can see blue sky and skyline in its shell. Bug is abot 6-8mm long.

This is my first post with a photo link, hope it works. :-)

Maybe I am disqualified? Don't know how to make it show up here.

EDIT: I've used your Flickr link and then used the address of a suitably sized image between the [img]..[/img] tags. I then made the image "clickable". Click the Edit or Quote buttons in this post to see how it works. Bob Andersson.

Thank you Bob Andersson for your help and what you done.
I still dont understand. :cry:
Hope to learn it soon.

I have to say that I didn't plan to go out and take a photo for this months assignment, but discovered this one had a reflection when I got home and uploaded it to my computer. Its not much in the way of creativity but it'll do.

Image

Exposure: 1/40
Aperture: f16
ISO: 100
Focal length: 200mm
Post processing: Black levels, minor desaturation, cooling white balance sllighty and crop.

I shot away from the sun hence why the pelican is bright and standing out, acted pretty much like a remote flash. Because of my position there was no glare or sun reflection on the water which was a plus.

I was in this town waiting for my car to be fixed so I took a walk along the river. Gorgeous day, as you can probably tell.

Nothing special this time, just one of those 'anti-bump' mirrors commonly found in my neighborhood. I wonder if these things actually work, though.

Focal length: 26 mm

A 10:30PM fireworks off a barge on the Frasier River in New Westminster. The evening was extremely warm and families and friends gathered on the quay.

Standing there with my tripod, not even thinking about this month's assignment, it suddenly hit me "there are reflections all over the place!"..lol.

Photographically speaking, there's too much detail to adequately convey on a 500 pixel wide image, but I hope it gives you the idea :-)

This is Titan the 8ft giant robot at the balmoral show in Belfast, it is intresting because there is a reflection of the sky in his chest plate.

This feather was floating in an old canal at Great Falls National Park in Virginia. At first I thought it was laying flat on the water but it was half submerged. The water surface was covered with algae and bubbles which gave the image a different texture. Using Adobe Elements 4.0. I cropped the image and applied the Watercolor filter to get this final image.
