I am just trying to be a bit ''arty'' with the inclusion of the reflection in the water.However,I will not be making a habit of showing my ''arty'' side.I still do not feel the need to rush out and buy a Lensbaby just yet !!

Hey, I really, really like this. Very cool image. Like looking over the edge and into the ocean and finding a lost city. Very mysterious feeling in it. To me anyway Mick................Sandy

I knew this was one of yours as soon as i saw the thumbnail!
I like this it brings together the two kinds of subjects you photograph so well, the rust and textures and the buildings in the reflection Smile
Great shot Mick

Very nicely composed, Mick, with the reflections in the b/g. As always your main subject is so crisp and well defined.

Quite an unsettling picture Mick. I get the feeling of being too near the edge and the water being a long way down. Only for a moment though. It's a great shot, with the combination of rust and reflections. Very well seen.

Isn't it wonderful how a bit of sunshine and a good choice of angle can turn a mucky puddle into a gleaming mirror? A polarizer would have killed the image dead by removing the reflection. Wise example of artistic abstinence, Mick. Like the ring too. More substantial than your recent rust samples. Presumably it is used to anchor the reflected buildings in a high wind. I agree with you about Lensbabies, by the way. Bill and Moira let me play with theirs, but they don't really appeal to me (Lensbabies, that is, not Bill and Moira).

Lensbaby do not make a fitting for a G11, Mick, so I'm glad you haven't wasted your cash.
Though they do make one to fit a D40 Wink
Love the perspective here, as well as the combined subject matter. I just hope nobody jumped. . .

Knew this would be yours but the reflection was a bit of a shock - it looks as though you are on a high precipice, quite dizzying. Rust and dreams. Love it.

A good set of contrasts. The hard, steel with the soft reflections, the old & rusty with the new & clean.
