There's some amazing entries here. Here's my three:

First attempt at joining.  Must say the works above are intimidating.  

 

H&W Crane in Belfast with amusement rides in puddle. (sadly a bit too windy)

Love this challenge topic, and have enjoyed viewing all the images so far.  Here are mine:

'Attention to the Reflection (Urban)' sounds scarily like real photography so I nearly ran away to my safe places but I've noticed plenty of varying interpretations so here's mine:

These are AMAZING and changing how I look at things. It's a good reminder that stock photos do not have to be literal and boring, but can be creative, surreal and beautiful!!! Thanks, everyone, for sharing. (don't think I have any to share yet)

Looks like the young lady on the left is stood on the reflected column. Don't know if you noticed that as you took it or later. Pity you could not have made more of the scene within the scene. Or perhaps you did.😉

 

It is strange how often this sort of thing happens with my shots but I don't see it till it is in the computer.

Unfortunately, I didn't notice that at the time, Allan! It wasn't possible to move to a better position as there was a sunken garden in the way, and the women soon moved off.

I was thinking of changing one of mine ... but changed my mind. Fun challenge. For once I have so many options. It's supposed to rain for the next week so I cancelled a trip to take stock photos on Cape Cod, but perhaps I can do some puddle reflections here instead. 😎

Marianne, every upload with a ref. no. above 2A4.... to this competition would mean a "challenge", so feel free to change any of you previous uploads with a newer one. 

And I'd like to say that to everyone involved....

C'mon guys, 5 more days left and the HEAT is on !!!

Gotta say rehi, as I have not been here for a while - work kept me too busy the past year or so. 

Thanks a lot for this challenge and the really great inspiring pictures posted already. 

Here are my three:

I have just realised that I can't help Ognyan with the poll, as we are going away for ten days on the 31st Oct. Is there anyone else who can help with the poll?

I am away as well I am afraid
