Thanks for the votes and to Nathan, Peter and Dave for the lovely comments.

Dave......After reading your advice about the housework and reading this very appropriate poem I've decided to turn a blind eye to the dust and go galavanting with my camera GrinGrinGrin Thanks for that Dave Grin

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better
To paint a picture, or write a letter,
Bake a cake, or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there's not much time,
With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, and books to read;
Friends to cherish, and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world's out there
With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair;
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust.

My sentiments exactly GrinGrin.....off out for the day folks !!

Time to Reflect by mrswoolybill at 12/07/2014 - 9:03 AM

Time to Reflect by dpr59

First of all, well done for getting the shot in the first place!

The problem for me is the white strip at the bottom with the 'real car, not the cones. I'll try to explain how I see this.

Reflection shots are something special, they aren't just about reality appearing the wrong way round. Reflections combine two planes and create their own world. Here you have a racing car, presumably going very fast, trapped in a cage of glazing bars, and with a couple of traffic cones. That's surreal!

So I have cropped / cloned a slice off the bottom of the frame to get rid of the real car and the light strip but keep the cones. Then I lightened, brightened, and added contrast - adding contrast can help to bring reflections to life.

Not your standard motor racing shot, but as I said above - slightly surreal.

The basic essentials of photo editing in my book revolve around enhancing light - making the most of what the file offers you. It's worth getting to grips with that, other more sophisticated techniques can follow later. Light is everything!
