Carnival 2006 #5 : The Reflections

Skee did some reflections sometime ago as part of his carnival series, now it's my turn. This one looks like some water colour painting and I think thats what I like about this one...anyway you thoughts.

Sweet shot bro. At first look I thought you had used a really funky filter. Then I saw the pavement and read and realized just waht I was looking at. Fantastic shot. Why don't I ever see these things.

reflections, i should read next time. Good attempt.
Atunbi is a clown, reflection shots are hard to do. good attempt, Its hard for me to tell that this is a reflection on the floor bcos I can hardly see any floor. like the painted feel
Its the essence of celebration. Great feel and color.

It really is fantastic. Has the feel of an impressionist painting, a welcome break from the realist type pictures we usually see. I love it.
I'm very fond of this kind of artistic work, this looks as a paint but there is someting more with the moove effect and what our imagination can build from this picture : I definitivly like it very much smile

Nice vibrant shot Jide. I would have cloned the top left corner to look like ground as well.

Wow, this is a great reflection shot!! Very nice!
brilliant reflection shot! I love how the fact that it's just a reflection in a puddle didn't take away from the life in the scene. Bravo!
