here comes my first brown and i'm proud of it :D


My guess is that if it wasnt a lake or puddle you are going to score low... based on the past 4 similar challenges. I refuse to conform and will pay for it even though I think it is at least merits high 5.8+ or more

Right now I am in the 4.8-5 range

I'm guessing a lot of shiny glass surfaces were employed. I guess some might consider those pretty close to a mirror. :)

Having said that, my own submission looks like one of these surfaces, but is actually water. So, looks can be deceiving.

Yet I still think this was incredibly clever and very well done.

im still trying to figure out how they did that... unless the sink was a stage, ho do you get the reflection in that direction, unless she's sitting on the wall?

It's probably a half wall. We had a house where the tub was on one side, then a small half wall, then the toilet. Then you could hang over the half wall without a problem.

Hmmmm - That must be it . . . I definately did not want to do what it seemed like most everyone else had done already and it does seem like I will pay for that with a low score, too. Like others have said - I still like my picture and if the masses don't, that's fine . . .

we have a 1/2 wall on our "garden tub" and it would be very easy to lean over it and get a shot like this...set ups for garden tubs have the faucet on the outside of the tub with the handles by it...mine is separated (handles - faucet) it is also gold/brass not so appealing...

Well, I had 5 mins to take a shot, and 10 mins to edit it. Really not a bit happy with it and shouldn't have entered but promised myself I would enter something. Expected about a 4.5, started this morning on 4.8, dropped to 4.6 so I thought I was pretty close with my estimate. Since then though, steady climb to

My lovely 5.2 accurately reflects my ability to connect with voters.

And what exactly does my 4.5 say, hmmm? So far not much, since I have no comments ;-)

Got up to around 6.5, but now down to 6.1. Slip slidin' away. (Now I'm going to be humming Simon and Garfunkle for the rest of the day..)

If it keeps going this way it won't be a PB for me. :-(
