Wow! Zoob, that is so cool! You can actually see a reflection of the scene behind you in her eye!
But alas, you can't the the zoob himself!

Holly sh!t. These fotos are all too good. Normally there mostly junk (sorry no offense). But man, I cant pick out of this lot!

Every damn one of them is a winner. Period.

Are zoobies like vampires? You can't see their reflection?

"...can't the the zoob.."? Are you studying the Castillian dialect of Spanish?

Anyway, she's looking into a camera mounted on a tripod that has a timer. I was well off to the side by the time the shutter clicked.

My camera boasts the ability to focus up to 5 cm away when in the macro mode. Despite the bright, outdoor light, allowing for fast shutter speed, and the tripod, she still managed to move a bit. This is the best of 7 shots I took. She didn't have patience for any more.

Oh, you don't know the rules?

If
{quote=Gokul43201;
thread title=" PF Photo Contest - I'm Ready For My Closeup, Mr. DeMille! (8/23-8/30)";
postcount=55;}
Then
"the the" := "see the"

Duh!

Thanks for the clarification. I feel like such a moron now, these If...then... Gokulizations of the rules of English should have been obvious to me.

I took this picture by placing a neodyminum magnet under a petri dish filled with ~5 mL of ferrofluid. You can see onlooker's reflections, as well as palm trees surrounding us reflected on the surface. Down near the bottom right, you can see a fairly clear reflection of above, including the camera, my finger, a palm tree, my head, and a nearby apartment building. Every piece of dust from the air that hit can be seen interacting with the surface tension of the fluid.

It was soo fun! This was only about 5 mL of fluid, I have 15 left! Can't wait to do it again!

You'd better resize it before ZZ sees it.

Otherwise: VERY cool, and pretty!

<sigh>

I'm beginning to think that people don't read the rules at all. :(

I'm sorry, but if this isn't resized as stated in our rules, it will not be included in the final voting.

Sorry. I am not sure how small that is, but I made it smaller.

Thanks.

And it is 640x(whatever). Wow, I'm getting good.

I just realized why: it looks like a jellyfish.

Jellyfish? I thought it looked like a zoobyshoe or a penguin. Or yomomma.
