Lisa J. Boulden level-classic October 08, 2008

Thank you all for such kind comments.
I captured this over a year ago, but didn't know quite how to crop or present it. Worked on it this morning. To me, it's okay, but not quite 'there' yet. (If you know what I mean.)
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Smiles, Lisa♥ #6571519

G'day Lisa,

I spotted thid very fine still life in the FFFP Club and if it does not become a BP Winner I'll complain to the Management! 8-)

This is a real stunner of a shot. Very well conceived and exceptionally well executed with a powerful composition, extraordinary lighting, wonderful exposure that handles the contrast and highlights so well, great depth of field, crisp as a chip sharpness and marvellous, glorious colour.

Late afternoon sunlight shined upon these colorful vases in my dining room.
Can anyone tell me: Are these considered 'shadows' or 'reflections'?
