A horseman on guard near the gates of Downing Street on Saturday afternoon. There were so many people stood by the horse that I decided to go for the closer detail!

Thank you for your time, as always your thoughts/comments are very welcome Smile

Brilliant - the mix of reality and reflection takes some working out but it's worth it!

Close up becomes abstract. You really are a master (or should that be mistress) of this type of shot Sarah.

Brilliant perspective to create this. I love this type of photo.

I will have to have a word with his boss though as there's a loose thread sticking out there Smile

MArvellously detailes, Sarah, and a shine to be proud of giving you that top quality refelction. An unusual detail shot that works very well, once you have figured it all out!

You certainly excel at these close-ups, Sarah, and it least they eliminate stray bodies creeping into the background! Wink Wonderful detail, with some added relfections, too! Smile
