I'm just a glutton for punishment I guess. :-) I tried to recreate a shot I took for a side challenge a few months ago but couldn't quite get the same feel to it. Spent too much time on this one however to abandon it...so here it is. Primed for a 4.xxx most likely. :-D

Here's the shot I was trying to recreate ==> ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30049/120/592467.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30049/120/592467.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The idea is that the photo in the frame is our wedding picture and reflected in the background is our son having a happy day. Life is good! We are truly blessed.

I almost wish I could tell what is in the picture frame. I love how you used it to catch the reflection. This is one of my faves of the challenge.

A world reflected in another world... excellent capture seizing the core of this challenge.

Fascinating use of reflection. This photo is a poem.

Interesting shot. The photo in the frame is obviously important (A wedding photo by your description), but the framed photo is slightly overpowered by the strength of the reflection. Perhaps a different time of day could have balanced the two subjects better. I really love the sentimental concept and give you high marks for creative thinking (which we need more of in this challenge).
