    Feedback

    Before I begin, I would like to thank everyone once more for their congratulations on the birth of my second daughter, Mia. Your kind words are very much appreciated. At two weeks and two days I am thrilled to report she nearly slept through the entire night, and I have some energy to devote to other obligations

    Kartoon joins us this week with a nice ÔÇ£double reflectionÔÇØ shot which finds art in the mundane. The background behind the TV looks a little cluttered, and I may have tried to include more of the TV itself, but the Corvette and itÔÇÖs reflection off the floor (which is far too clean in my opinion) are very well framed inside the TV screen.

As is an issue with many reflection shots, choice of focal point could change the image quite a bit. I see the window as the subject, but the focal point draws my eye to the trees in the reflection. I would prefer to see more of the interesting detail in the wooden window and barn really stand out. BoxerÔÇÖs section of perspective and framing are what really makes this shot.

I am a little distracted by the change in background to the right, but changing the angle to show only the controls might have compromised the perspective. This many reflections can be hard to manage, but Bony takes care not to show any recognizable image of the photographer.

    This is a nice image of Gail and her daughter [and her daughter] sharing their appreciation of photography. The lighting is warm and inviting, and I am a real sucker for candid photographs of photographers. Closing the aperture just a bit and using a slower shutter speed could have increased the depth of field to put her and her daughter into slightly better focus, but the even spacing of the ÔÇ£threeÔÇØ photographers and the rather consistent distance from her daughter to the window and from her to her daughter gives an excellent balance to this reflection shot.

I may have preferred the mirror to be positioned a bit differently, but it is clear that he has made subtle compromises for the purpose of framing both the scene in the reflection and the scene in the background.

The tree in the foreground breaks up the reflection of the mountain in the pond, and I am curious to know what effect a little zoom would give, but overall a magnificent scene! I can almost feel the cool clean mountain air.


    Quote Originally Posted by rocketman View Post

The relatively low light for such a high zoom may have caused a slight blur, but it looks like the VR may have kicked in to lend a hand. Nice balance of subject and reflection.


    Quote Originally Posted by Beemerchef View Post
    Of BeemerchefÔÇÖs two images, this one is outstanding. His choice to expose to the beautiful canyon walls makes the light seem as if it is burning its way through the ceiling, and the dust in the air only helps to accentuate the sun-beam. Although this appears to have been cropped and, if so, would not conform to the rules of the assignment, this image is near to perfection.

Where this image could benefit from a slight change in angle to give the tank a more unique perspective, it more than makes up for it in sentimental impact. Thank you for sharing this with us.

The double reflection works very well here to feature both bikes, and the perspective gives an interesting dimension to the foreground tank. A greater depth of field here may add more interest to all three primary reflections, but the blur almost serves to further blend the chrome and color into a beautiful BMW collage.
