You managed to take one of the most-repeated reflective surfaces (glasses) for this subject and produce a genuinely original image. The composition and depth-of-field work very effectively on this one.

Your picture is good, the title could have been: "This is What I See at the Office"

Nice and bright with good color. DPz

The selected natural setting seems good and atractive, but IMHO this image absolutely requires a perfect technique to compensate for the lack of originality; the reflection of the waterfall would need to be in a perfect focus in order to provide interest. I'm not saying that would be easily achieved.

did you use a tripod? if not shame on you! in my opinion this one could have been a winner if it weren't blurry. but that's my opinion.

This is a superb idea that's been very neatly done. However, DOF lets it down quite a bit; I think had the glasses also been in sharp focus and the surrounding background were totally black, this would have been a masterpiece. I'd try shooting this again in manual mode, set F8 or higher if possible experimenting with the shutter speed to get the right background exposure. Other than that, keep shooting it's a great shot (7)

I was really tired of seeing all of the sunglass photos, till I came across this one. I really like the waterfall. Good job. 8 smshats

lovely !!!

I like how the bg is just a blur. Having the glasses so out of focus is bothersome tho. Was it due to DOF?

Sunglasses? This feels odd to me, the glasss just being held out like that. I can appreciate the idea though. :-)

This is a nice shot... Good use of limited DOF. The image that is reflecting is crystal clear and very much in focus. The only thing that I see the detracts from the photo is the ear piece folded behind the lense. I don't think it would look right sticking out of the back of the photo either... and I can't ask you to break your sunglasses ;) - 7 - JB

All my family lives right near here. Except me, I live in MI. I have been here many times, and have never seen THIS view of it. very pretty. I love the angle and the lighting is perfect for the shot. focus and clarity are great. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

Amazing shot. How did you get the background?
09/30/2002 10:58:00 AM
The reflection is clearer than the glasses...how did you manage that one. Actually I think it's a nice touch, whether it was on purpose or not.
