    This was taken with my new toy. My original entry choice (taken with my old camera) is posted in the this is not valid thread. This was a chance find while I was tracing cables.

    No editing has been done to it ... so I hope it's ok. All tips, comments and recommendations are welcome - I need all the help I can get.

    The exif details can be found on flickr.

    Hi Ddodia

    nice sharp image and defo on theme.

    Cant work out exactly what it is .....looks like a skyline ceiling window?? i think :confused:

    I personally would have zoomed out a little more and taken the full circle on the outer rim as well.

    But nevertheless great 2nd entry.....

    Hi ddodia - I like this image - makes me try and investigate what I'm looking at. Skylight - with a row of mirrors around the side - with a sculpture in the middle?
    I'd like to see it bigger though, as there is a lot of detail which is hard to see.
    Maybe you should take full advantage of the 800px max dimension for this one. Just a thought.
    Nice entry

    Thanks all for the comments - please keep them coming!

    This pic was taken using the self timer with the cam left on the floor directly underneath.

    It is of a round window in the roof of the building. The sculptures are made of wire mesh and hung from the window. The surrounding white is the underside of the mezzanine first floor. The surrounding mirrors are glass panes used as a barrier to stop the kids from falling down :devil:! Luckily for me the the weather was on my side and the reflections cast worked in my favour :).

    Other variations (taken with both cams) of this can be found on my filckr site.

    Nice Photo. Looks like fishing nets hanging from the ceiling.
    Self timer has helped - nice and sharp result.
    Like others have said - would have been good to get the full outer circles as well and slightly more centered but otherwise great :smashin:
