In case this story hasn't made it across the Atlantic, bird flu panic is sweeping Europe...

My meat cleaver looked pretty reflective; I just needed a victim, erm I mean subject. My neighbour's chickens were ideal though not posable enough, so I took a snap of Cruella, then photographed her image as displayed by the laptop, reflected on the cleaver.

Levels, sat, brightness, rotate & crop, USM, save for web.

Haha, this is scary .. But great idea .. Just wish you used smaller aperture to get the whole scene in focus.

Before the invention of glass, people used polished metal and yet called it a mirror.
Just a history lesson. Very original. Hope the chicken dinner was good.
