    A Moment Of Reflection

    Our theme this week is on pictures that includes images that have been reflected. The images can be reflected off mirrors, water, smooth surfaces, etc. However, please note that the pictures must show clearly that what we're seeing is a reflection, especially when it is off a mirror.

    Zz.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Zz.

    I've been waiting for this one!

    Here are the Tetons, or the Snotet depending on your point of view.

    Wow! It's only been a few minutes since this contest is up, and already I can tell that this is not going to be an easy one to vote on.

    Zz, is that a reflection of the trees from the picture you used in the tropical paradise contest?

    Same location, but not the exact scene. This was nearer to a "bridge".

    Here's a beaver lodge near our cottage. I wish I were there now, even though it's probably under 10 ft of snow.

    Less than 2 days left to submit a photo for this contest - IF YOU DARE! So far the pictures submitted have been astounding. So give it your best shot and see what happens.
