Although we're surrounded by visual reflections, most of us tend to ignore them. We're subconsciously aware of reflections, but that realization is generally suppressed. Today I was clearing my son's cabinet and found his marbles and here's what I came up with. BG adjusted in PS CS2

I am most impressed SJ - with the image of course, but also that you were cleaning your son's cabinet! Good for you! This image is wonderful. Love the white background and the composition off-side. The reflections are amazing as you say - we should all look for these miniature worlds more. Excellent as always. Have a good Sunday. #1629966
