Friday, November 30: The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Reflections.

This challenge is about using reflections in the composition of a shot. Reflections are all around us, whether they’re in a window, a puddle, a mirror, or another surface. They can dramatically affect the feeling and mood of a shot by creating a surreal sense of duality. Think of a city reflecting in a river, a crowd of people reflecting in the glass pane of a building, or a landscape altered by the placement of a simple glass mirror.

I challenge you to head out and create an image that uses reflections to force the viewer to question and interpret the reality of the shot.

Here are my images of reflections.
