October Challenge - Attention to the Reflection (Urban)

Recommended Posts

So here's this month's Challenge ( huge "thanks" to Colin, Wim, Paulette and Marianne - you rock!).

"Attention to the Reflection"? Hm, what's in my mind?

I imagine mostly puddles ( come on, guys, it rained at least once in your place and being good, you

had your camera with you ) and whatever grabbed your attention (!) in there. The more colourful - the better ! 

It works with glasses of wine as well, of course...;-)

It's close to mind that the photos must be on Alamy and the challenge will close at midnight your local time (am I 

that generous? Yes, I am!) on 31st of October. Please, upload up to 3 shots. There will be 8 photos picked by me which will compete for the top

prize and a voting poll will be set for one week. The winner will be able to set the November Challenge.

That's it!

Let's do this! (Sorry, no examples)

Three from me. Although I have to admit that I generally try to keep reflections out of my images in the urban environment. Thankfully a few slipped through.

Living where I do, you'd think I'd have urban images but this is the best I can do. The first one was taken in the Bronx at least....

Reflections in urban settings (in one case, if urban can be an urban park):



Common Snapping Turtle in an Eakins Park pond in Fairfax County, Virginia.




Reflection of the Altagracia, Isla de Ometepe, cathedral in a rain puddle. 
Just the two.  Don't have any others that are urban.

Congratulations on your win Ognyan! 


Just noticed that the title of the competition is "Attention to the Reflection (Urban), but it didn't mention Urban in the instructions, so I will submit another two in a couple of days!
