Reflecting on the Sunrise

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I did shoot the sunrise that was going on behind me, and I will post some photos of that later, but I thought I’d continue on with the Yorktown Pub shots from yesterday’s photo.

After the sun rose, the photo ops of it stopped. The pub windows were so grimy on the inside, that they were great reflectors. So I took about four or five reflections of the risen sun and the shores of the beach on these windows. This one is my favorite.

Minolta Maxxum 7000 Kodak Ultra Color ISO 400 1/15 f-4.5 Aperture Mode Sigma 28-85mm zoom lens @ 85

Blogger isn’t uploading pictures again, so thanks to my daughter for her magic this morning. She was supposed to teach me to do this so I wouldn’t have to wake her up, but it went so fast, I missed it. Maybe next time.

This is indeed wonderful! Just look at how clearly the branches register on the glass pane! The misalignment also gives an interesting (dare i say postmodern?) look to it. :)

Great effect! I really like what you have done with this shot. Nice work!

BTW - When Blogger isn't uploading you should give Picasa a try. Its really easy and also has some other advantages as a picture management tool.

Hi Micki, yeh, I ran into the problem with Blogger yesterday too. With my hectic life over the last week or so, I don't have ime to meet their schedule. well, it's free, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

Lovely shot! You have a great eye for intersting scenes.

I just added an old Canon A1 to my Minolta 700si to complete my film camera tool kit. Along with a 55mm macro and a Bogen tripod. I'm going to be trying some stuff like this as I go along.

anyway, keep shooting.

Very cool shot. I like how the window panes have misaligned the reflection. It gives this shot a lot of interest.

Wow, I LOVE the frame of the window in this, adds so much more to it, no wait. I'm confused. Is this 4 images in one? Anyway's incredible shot!

This one is cool. I like the colors, and the idea is super. Looks a bit like a collage.

Good eye Micki! This is great.

Wow! Micki this is terrific. You did an excellent job here. I love it!

I second the pp about Picasa. It will also allow visitors to be able to click on the image and enlarge it (which I couldn't do with this one.) I really wanted to see the image larger. :(

I had to do a double- and then a triple-take on this one to wrap my head around it.

An innovative way to present a sunrise.

A frame inside the frame, I think that's brilliant and great. You have captured the whole colour scale inside one picture and I know that is almot impossible. I am stunned and impressed.

You have a very nice Blog! This exposure is interesting because it makes you think and ponder about why the ground is missing on one side.
It draws your attention to the whole frame.
