    This is a great community.
    Just wasn't sure if the pictures would be accepted, I guess?
    They seem to be though

    I have another couple here. In the first one, I like the stripey effect of the shadows across the path; in the second, I like the stark contrast of the shadow with the brightly-lit surrounding area.

    I particularly like the way the reflections are multiplied in this.

    Lots of great shots, I'm impressed by all of you.
    ParkinT, that's a great shot, very weird reflection effect.

    And TechnoBear, your great shadowshots reminded me of this picture I took (the same winter as the heron photo). No reflections, not much light, but so much shadow it has become almost a silhouette. I hope it's on topic.

    Interesting picture, @guido2004 . I love the patterns of the branches and the contrast between the slender twigs and the rounded shapes of the birds. The dim light reminded me of one I took a couple of weeks ago. (This is turning into a kind of "picture association" thread. ) It was mid-afternoon, but very misty and the light was really weird. I've ended up with an almost monochrome picture, with a very faint, ghostly reflection in the water.

    That's a really cool photo. A beautiful ship as well. And yes, it's so perfectly monochrome it would be hard to get that perfect with photoshop

    Thank you. If only I could say I planned it that way, but I'm afraid all the credit goes to my camera.

    The camera is simply a tool. It is the way in which the craftsman uses that tool that makes it art. Admittedly, many of the subtle things you did to make that a GREAT SHOT were instinctive. But you still should not deny yourself credit for timing, composition, choice of subject (just to name a few important aspects).

    I am a firm believer that you do not need an expensive camera to take wonderful photographs. By the same token, the most sophisticated and expensive camera is equally capable of taking awful photos; in the wrong hands.

    That ship looks as if it could be the Flying Dutchman. It's eerily lovely. If these photos (all of 'em matey) are examples of picture association, then I say anchors away. I'm loving this thread! I salute you all!

    So it does - I hadn't thought of that. And oddly enough, I'm pretty sure it is Dutch. I think it's the same vessel as in this picture, taken last Monday in the exact same location. It's amazing what a difference atmospherics make to a picture.

    It certainly is amazing. There is no reflection or shadow at all in that picture, except that it looks like the hill tops have a slight shadow, which is peculiar since it appears there is not even a cloud near to cast one.

    That's actually differences in rock/vegetation giving the illusion of shadow. The only cloud in the sky was a little fluffy white stuff out to the west - you can just see a bit of it in the picture.

    As my last picture didn't have either reflections or shadows (I only posted it for comparison with my previous picture) I thought I'd make up for it with this one, which has both.

    January 2010 was unusually cold, and the beach froze solid for several days. This picture has the houses across the road reflected in the ice on the beach, and my shadow as I took the photo. (It was late evening; I'm not really that shape. ) It also has nice effects of light and shadow on the beach.

    I can merge the other thread, but I do really like that it's featured and has had good response. Besides, there's no prize here. Just a thread to see what our photographer members can come up with. Here's the link for those of you who haven't seen it.: r937's Transit of Venus

    I was looking for something else when I happened upon these photos my husband took, and I decided they ought to be shared. (He's quite happy with that. )

    There are no reflections here but just light and shadow. I took these with my mobile while I was going to work... and the first one when I was waiting for the bus back to my home.

    Actually, most of his pictures are rubbish. He's an artist and he takes photos for reference - to remind himself of the relative sizes or positions of objects, for example. He doesn't care about composition, because he can straighten wonky horizons, remove stray telegraph poles, change the perspective or whatever when he paints the picture. I can't paint, so I have to try and get it just right in the photo. But occasionally, like here, he does take a really good photo.

    That is a GREAT photo! Normally, the advice is to NOT split the frame evenly ("the rule of thirds" and all) but in this case I think that is what makes the image captivating.
