Hi all, and a BIG thank you to all who voted on 'HOT!' for whatever reason Smile

Something different tonight again, and a quick Candid shot from Leeds Castle when the Sun was shining. I kind of liked the colours here, and the reflection caught my Eye, which is what made me raise my Camera to my Face and click.
Hope all is well with you lot out there, and that you're managing to get a few new shots to see you through what's left of the Summer. ( Or has Summer just begun? ) Whatever the case, take care and carry on clicking.

All the best to all,

John Smile

That's a great mirror image John made special by the colours they are wearing. Looks an idyllic scene - a lovely capture.

Often these chanced on candids make the best shots, unexpected and well captured, John.

Mick may mock, John, but I think he might be just a touch jealous. This is a rather special photo. There's the colour, sure, and the rather touching little scene; what strikes me is however the horizontal divisions in the composition, not perhaps 'classically' proportioned (but s*d that for a game of soldiers) and the fact that the reflection is less than complete; it gives us a hint of the scene above but no more.

All joking aside, your most intriguing image for a while: have a U.A. with my compliments.

Regards
Bill

Very, very good. We were enjoying this together.
Just a silly idea - crop off the top half, or even two thirds, and flip this upside down. I think it might work.

The members of the local fishing club - won’t be fishing here with all those bright coloured reflections on the water. Got to hand it to the Lifesnapper - he does a good upload.
