  1. Enjoying the water images, especially Mary’s Sunset Beach, lovely colours of oranges and blues.

  2. I like Ian’s “Down the Plughole” but Kelly’s is amazing – to capture the rider doing a somersalt is superb…

  3. Thanks June; and I think you’ve captured the texture of the coffee beans really well.

    Checked out Valda Bailey, lots of interesting work she has, can see some of her inspiration in your image. Thanks for sharing.

    Challenge 4, ICM: let me explain, this one was one of dozen I took practising night photography -long exposures- many years ago! The first was accident, then I tapped the camera on top or side and got many different shapes of lights reflections [arrow/ coma/ across/ down etc.] I choose this one for your critique please!!

    Well done to everyone who took part. I intended to do so but the week was too short! – that’s my excuse anyway.

    Sorry I forgot about this one. Lovely set so well done to everyone who entered.

    This was an interesting challenge and there are some really interesting images here. I was looking on the web for some inspiration and came across Valda Bailey who seems to be well respected and does a lot of images of this type. You can perhaps tell that I either plagiarised or was inspired by her stuff, depending on your point of view. 🙂

    Somehow, Bob’s image makes me want a Cadbury’s Flake. You probably have to be as old as me to understand.

    Enjoyed this challenge, learned a little more about ICM and how to use it for artistic effect (I hope!) Liked Bob’s Dancing Poppies and Brian’s Sonning water scene. Both looked like watercolours, give a delicate feel to the images. I used a “Focal Zoom” effect on my flower which I just bought from the supermarket. Photographed from above. I tried one with water drops and one with out. Liked the one with drops more. The Focal Zoom effect extended the petals giving a dreamy effect. Tried it a few different ways, offsetting the centre of the zoom. Good fun!

    Well done everyone – a difficult topic, or at least one I have not done much of – the occasional panning of a fast car, so it really was a challenge to find suitable topics. The colours in Nagui’s image are great. I love the delicacy of June’s flower too. Look forward to seeing mext week’s images on Reflection – hopefully a little easier and we should get more entries!
