    I went out this afternoon to have an initial go at this. The results? Hardly brilliant; but here they are to get us started…

    Through the window… and the roof!

    Nikon D300s
    Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
    FL=28mm  1/200s  f/5  ISO=200
    Natural light
     

    Not through these windows – too dangerous!

    Nikon D300s
    Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
    FL=35mm  1/200s  f/8  ISO=200

    Through the window – back-to-front

    Nikon D300s
    Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
    FL=55mm  1/30s  f/8  ISO=200
    Natural light
     

    Seriously reflective

    Nikon D300s
    Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
    FL=24mm  1/30s  f/4  ISO=200

    Through the rebated square

    Actually, I think I like this version better…

    Seriously reflective…

    Love your choices Mac, Like the mono and the rebated square images as I feel they are more successful. The mono appears stronger and works better as I feel the colour background/reflection doesn’t work. The conversation piece in The rebated suare is interesting. Must get some done myself.

    I really like the 2nd Version of Seriously Reflective Mac.  What a good idea.  The edits make a huge difference and it is good to see a before and after version.  Shame about the parked car in Rebated Square but that is another good idea.

    That’s an thoughtful set of photographs Ian. I like the last version best as well. it works well in black and white. I like the composition and the rich deep blacks.

    In the ‘rebated square’ I can see you’ve positioned the lady carefully between the icicles. Nicely done.

    Damn you …. I was going to post a similar shot!  Is that my hand I can see waving a leaf? Haven’t you heard of Photoshop? 😉 The Penguin has come out lovely Pete and you caught the bubbles. I suspect it is not the sharpest image in the world but I had the same problem because of the glass.  Nice characterful one!

    Both fantastic shots Pete and Dolores and yet both so different.Petes dive bombing penguin with bubbles has a diagonal compostition. While Dees has a lovely parallel motion.Its always good to see its flippers for a change aswell. Great shot both of you I’m jealous, as my long lens just couldn’t cope. But if I’d stuck at it I might have got something.

    By the way, noticed you’ve clipped his claw, not badly but just noticed.

    You’re a hard woman Miss Cumming …  was hoping you wouldn’t notice the claw! 😉

    That’s an interesting composition Dolores. I like the colour combination and it shows you don’t have to show the complete animal to get a good picture.

    My version is a bit soft and I didnt spot your hand until after I posted it. How did I miss that?

    I know I’m hard but but we’re here to spot them, like I didn’t even notice the hand reflection in Petes. It sounds silly but you’ve managed to avoid the scratches  on the window,these can be so hard to avoid.
