Cleaned the sink, which pleased my wife Lorraine:-)
Removed the plug, which Lorraine didn't appreciate:-(

Will probably get penalised on the reflections from the flash and a bit too much noise or too sharp but hey ho.

Slightly upped the exposure to get a whiter sink
Upped Vignetting to lighten the corners
Straightened in the crop

Did you use flash for this one? It looks like you did, or you used some unfortunate lighting that caused all those reflections. I think that this would have done much better with a longer exposure with a more diffused light... Still a top-10 in the challenge. Bump to 8.

Good concept for the challenge. Hopefully you don't really resort to using your lens cap.

I'm glad someone used this idea. It was one I thought of, but you did it better than I would have.

Good altenative! It apear that you had used a flash here. The light hurts a bit this picture. There are so many hot spots distracting a lot. Try to use a soft light with very reflective subjects.

uh oh, I hope that's not true.. great focus, especially on the water, nice job, maybe converting this to B&W or desaturating it would add more interest, but nice job overall
