The heck with it all. Wine glasses seem to do well here...

Entry 5
I've taken so many images for this challenge. I'm so confused and a mass of indecision about what to enter. So many choices. I took a bunch during my recent LA GTG, and a bunch today. I've pestered ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

All the other reflections I've shot are on glass, buildings, water. This was the only escalator:-) It also contains a human element, and an unusual vantage point. This is actually the fourth image I upload, and literally the last picture I shot today. And I shot it from the hip, coming out of the subway!! I'm actually delighted (and rather shocked) it turned out at all, properly exposed, framed and focused with strong leading lines, a pleasing diagonal, and a slight tilt. So I think I'm done. Although I have a coin on standby, just in case.

Maybe too subtle for the challenge, but it appeals to my "outre" side. I've yet to make it into the Posthumous Gallery, so perhaps...

Oh for HEAVEN'S SAKE!!! This is it. I'm done.

Entry 3
Ok, this is it. Enough already. A fisheye view of buildings reflecting off each other as well as the the sky and clouds. And a very cool sunburst!

Entry 2
I love this shot, the clouds (and that cute little streetlight) reflected off this very unusual building

Entry 1
Not sure about this. A building reflected in water...???

A wine glass by any other name...

On second look, it's kind of cool. They do appear to dance.

Good idea. Like the cool feeling the lighting projects. Fitting title (I think titles are important) with the pattern of lights. Nice compostion pulling viewer into the chorus. I would have liked a bit larger dof extend through the 6th or 7th glass. Good luck! -8-

Nice effect! Having one main color I thinks adds a lot too.
