Thanks for the encouraging comments on yesterday's upload.
I have gone back to the drawing board and hope you like the outcome - not so quirky, but taking on-board a number of suggestions, including those from Tony and Moira
Thanks for looking

Tony's suggestion of a crop to eliminate the rug makes this much stronger. There's just enough reality to anchor the image down and balance (rather than just explain) the reflection. Brilliant.

Super, Helen! Think I prefer this version to yesterday's upload - it shows more of those lovely colourful wobbly bits Wink

I think I prefer the geometry of the previous (but only just), the reflection is superb but the stand is a bit too prominant and distracting (sorry).

Dave

Having compared the two Dave, I think I will definitely be willing to try irregular shapes again, so that was worth experimenting with. Also I like the feeling of looking down on the image yesterday, whereas this is more "in your face".

Experimenting is never an easy route to take but I do appreciate the encouragement people have given me, though my husband feels I could do without encouragement WinkWinkWinkWinkWink

This version is my favourite of the two, Helen. But then I am a fan of the abstract look to things. I found 'the extras' in yesterday's too distracting. This one nails it solidly.

I like the larger reflective area in this Helen - if I had to choose I would go with the previous irregular shaped image.Smile

It's interesting to see an alternative version, but I'm sitting on the fence, Helen. I do like your subject, though, and those distorted reflections.

I think the fence sounds fine, because I see them as versions rather than replacements Pamela SmileSmile

Excellent pov here which gives a strong (perhaps even slightly uncomfortable) tension to this natural abstract. Good work. A
