    Out tonight at the local shopping complex and didn't take the camera with all the crappy weather were having and when out of the car in the rain/snow.............this shot presented itself! what to do.............? Then I remembered my smart phone has a camera...........not the best but!!

    Anyway.............this was taken with an "Acer V370/Liquid E2!" phone and edited when I got home............and i like this. Its what I see as a good take on this month's theme and because the shot was There....this is going to be entry. Hope you like it............Hey Hoo

    I know it's early-ish morning which is never my forte, but I can't work out what this is? :confused: Obviously it's a reflection of a PC world sign, but I can't work out what's causing the reflection?

    It's a bit abstract, perhaps. I get it, though. It's nice! Like the starry light.

    The whole car park is lit and there are lots of bright shop fronts before PC World.......phone at angle and the spotlight is bounced because of the way I held the phone and took the shots (More than just this 1) till I got what I wanted.

    Man........................:clap:


    And yes, its a puddle but with a reflection of eveyday things we all see................like PC bloody world! I wouldn't take anything to them by the way..............Not a chance!! :facepalm:

    I thought it must be, but I can't say I've ever seen a puddle that looks so angular before (the bit above/right of the flash reflection) :confused:

    Ice, great concept but I'm struggling to find an area of focus, was this deliberate?

    Deliberate? Its been edited subtley ........and as mentioned it was taken with an Acer phone, not a camera as such.............and the shot just appeared, not literally, but you get the jist..............I hope.

    Anyway........I have had some real positive feedback for the shot from other sites, mainly because it was shot with an Acer phone I'd imagine but it was an opportunistic shot and I took it................not planned, the best kind of shot.

    In which case it works very well. It wasn't critique, just trying to get an understanding of the shot :smashin:
