I have a friend that is getting into photography and sees the remakable in the mundane. He sees the world differently from "normal" people. :biggrin: Thankfully, it's actually starting to rub off on me and I'm beginning to see things from an entirely new perspective.

I'd like to see pictures here that are from a different perspective. Extreme close-ups, crops from a larger picture, odd angles, anything that gives the ordinary new meaning.

I'll start with one of his last photos.

What is it?

I'll give you a hint, it's something you see all the time, it's ordinary, but we probably let it slip by unprocessed because we are focusing on other things.

Good guess, nope. But you get 50 GOOBF points for being the first.

I have other views I might post.

Well, it looks like a thin layer of fluid over a rough surface. Lack of diffraction suggests that its not oily.

Was it taken at sunset? From the color variation ins the reflection it looks like that is possible.

Well, everyone knows that :wink:

Yeah, but close is only good in horseshoes, hand grenades, and nuclear weapons.

Hmm.....


Not sure, exactly what it is.

PS:

How many GOOBF points per banning?

Im going out on a limb to say that it might be some part of a wet tree....

Either that or a closeup of a piece of dark glass...

EDIT: I just wanted to take a few wild guesses :)

EDIT2: I just saw your hint, nevermind :(

Hmm, I don't think a wet tree would be that reflective. Further, the angle would have to be really weird for the reflection of the sunset to make sense.

Its the black color thats really throwing me off. If the liquid is water, then the black color makes me think fresh asphalt with water running along it. I wonder what the white light in the lower corner is. Something in the foreground of the reflection, since its infront of the cloud....still not sure.

EDIT: Rotating it and changing the contrast makes it look kinda weird

Since you guys have been so awesome at guessing so far, I'll give you these hints...water, glass, dark.

When I first saw these, my thoughts were of something molten.
