    Hi all,

    Due to the timing of the holidays, I'm going to stretch this challenge out to 96 hours.

    The theme for this challenge is: Reflection

    Here is an example of one interpretation of the theme:
    421.

    Best of luck and have fun!

    ps: feel free to write title and/or caption to accompany your submission(s).


    72 Hour Challenge Rules

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72 hours (except this one, whch will last for 96 hours). Everyone gets to submit 2 photos in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a blue ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for "New 72+ Hour Challenge (22-26 Dec '12): Reflection."

    I think it's the absence of reflection from the water plants which makes the actual reflection from the water surface work in this case.

    This photo was taken at Paris’s Grand Palais, Paris during the Daniel Buren color project. Which was about colors and reflections.

    Pear, your photo shows up on my desktop and also on my ipad as a thumbnail, and when I click on or touch it expands to its normal size. Not a problem for me. Have fun and enjoy this site.:smile:
