Two of my favourite subjects combined here in the Nursery playground
I love the 3D effect that puddles create, and here where they meet the eye can change focus from 2D to 3D - so which do you focus on and can you hold that focus for long? I can't
Thanks for looking.
I am looking forward to some more wonderful Saturday shadows - after a bit more sleep !!!!

I love situations where shadows and reflections combine. The light is bound to be good in such circumstances and here it positively sparkles.
Super image, Helen: subject, light, composition are all spot-on.

Just reading an old book on colour last night and it was suggested you focus on the subject and the light would
do the rest with the reflection.Can't explain the science bit!
Anyway whatever you did - you did it very well. Instantly recognisable as yours!

This is very clever. We have to look quite hard to see what is there. At first this looked like a huge architectural shot, but then we see the small details.
