    " reflexion - the phenomenon of a propagating wave (light or sound) being thrown back from a surface. reflection"

    A little bit more saturated, a little bit cropped, a little bit darker. That's the changes I made to the shot. Minimal, really. I hope you'll like it. It's nothing special, but it's one of my favourite kind of reflections.
    For the most favourite one, I would've had to make my way to Chester or some other nearby bigger city and I don't think I'll have time/will for that right this moment.

    It's very peaceful to look at.

    It's all right. Not everything is everyone's cup of tea.

    I quite like this; it's nice and relaxing. I can almost imagine it as a huge abstract canvas on a wall in a modern, city apartment lol, although I think I'd crop the bottom quarter off and make it 16:9 for that :smashin:

    Thanks for all the comments, guys! What is it about Chester? Well, tons of people and windows, coffee shops etc. etc. Make good opportunities for nice window reflections :)

    I like it.

    One question (and I only looked because there was a link) why, on the exif data, does it show it was posted to flikr before it was taken?
    What is Exif data?
    Exif data is a record of the settings a camera used to take a photo or video. This information is embedded into the files the camera saves, and we read and display it here.

    My camera seems to be exactly spot on in time, so it must be Flickr problem. They've had Bad Panda a lot there lately.

    It's a bit dark for me M, although I realise that is deliberate to expose for the reflection. I like the framing, but the reflection itself is a bit bland for me. Sorry :(

    Not sure about this photo. Maybe a little colour in the grass on the LHS would've added to the interest. Sorry :(

    Looks like I really hit the bottom this month :p (no pun intended! Or maybe it was :p )
    Surely we can't all like everything we see :) No need to apologize.
