Dear All,

Going through the archives I found this shot I took during summer season this year. I found it interesting to look at the mirror-reflections being projected on the stagnant water on the streets and roads. It was rather a thoroughfare, broken at some parts, hence giving great opportunity to the photographers like me to catch such moments.

The day was sunny and the sky was blue. The chimneys of a buildings were being mirror-reflected on those small water bodies was more than interesting to take 1-2 shots.

This is my entry to Friday's theme!

Kind regards,

Hi Paras,
A nice reflection of this chimney pot, a bit distorted by the traffic lights! Although I like the presentation, there are some objects that are destructing my full admiration.
I give full merit for the originality to the subject's approach.

Hi Paras.

Very arty indeed, very unique today to use reflections like this to the theme. Well seen. tfs

Hi Paras,

It is a good idea to use the water to show thew reflections. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the chimney which is a ghood contribution to the Friday's theme. Have a nice day.

Dear Paras,

That's a lovely idea to post the image upside down to correct it's orientation of view haha. Beautifully drawn image. Genuine presentation in fine details even it's reflection. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Not your usual view of a chimney nor is it common to look at one in a puddle of water heyhey but original this one certainly is !
Good eye to see the shot ,the upper part of the building reflected in the larger puddle whereas bits of the facade appears in the smaller ones , sharp details and good focus on the water reflection to create depth here , tfs Paras ,
have a great weekend,

Nice idea. I am glad you explained the shot. It was a little puzzling at first glance. Novel but appropriate entry to them

A very original and creative viewpoint makes a worthy contribution to the Chimney Pot Friday theme. The natural composition created by the water puddles looks in ghe thumbnail image as if you with it with PP masking.

Very Well Done
