    In Mark0's absence I'm doing the stand-in.

    Mirror, mirror on the wall...

    Looking for photos where reflection is core to the image. Just to make a bit of a difference, I'm particularly looking for reflections that are NOT in a major body of water (puddles OK, lakes not OK). Good luck everyone!

    The rules are as usual:

    · The photographs must be your own work.

    · Be creative and have fun.

    · You may only submit one photo per contest.

    · Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.

    · The contest runs for a week and starts now!

    · At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.

    · If the Judge is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline for close, then a vote will be carried out to select a winner. This will be based on the number of "likes" each image has. In the event of a draw, the second place winner from the previous week will choose the tiebreaker.

    · The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    · Please update the Weekly Contest Master List when you post a new contest

    Something for starters:

    Great topic. You'll be sorry.

    I've got the perfect image for this theme, but it won in another category about 2 years ago. It would be wrong to post it again. Then there is my own shot of Chicago reflected in the Bean, but I guess that one is out now as well.

    CURSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Surely there's no rule on re-using a photo, especially after 2 years ;)

    Cheers :)

    I think you're right given the entries so far...There's nothing in the rules to say you can't post a previous winner or posted shot - if it meets the theme then fine with me. As for the Bean, my photo doesn't count as an entry, it was just to get things started and I'm certain you could do better than that so please don't feel inhibited: I for one would love to see it!

    That's not a real sax... Where's the greasy paw prints!? I used to play French Horn and it was a nightmare to keep clean. :rolleyes:

    Love the reflections of the sheet music.

    It is not a lot different than yours. Mine was shot from the same side but a little wider. The reflection in mine is also a little more convex.

    It stopped being greasy after I finished cleaning it. It did not take long for the paw prints to reappear.

    Wow, the pictures already submitted in the first five hours are great. Yea, I think you'll be very sorry @anotherscotsman.

    Like @deep diver I have a picture I've submitted before that would be a good fit for this topic but I think I will try to come up with something else.

    I'm not sure yet if I'll stick with this one. Maybe I can come up with something better.
