You Capture Reflections

I am taking part in a new challenge this week called You Capture. You can find the link to this photography blog here. The challenge this week was to take a photo highlighting a reflection, any kind of reflection. I wanted to do something out-of-the-box, something not water-related. Here is my result:
I got this idea when my husband and I started to watch Eagle Eye on DVD. The reflection on the back of the DVD was perfect. Kali and I headed out to the backyard and took a bunch of photos.
Then I started thinking about the reflection, and wanted to make it the focal point of my photo. So, I went into Picasa and edited the remainder of the photo into a blur, leaving the focus on the DVD reflection. I was really pleased with the results. Then, Kali and I started playing with regular CDs. You can see the results of those photos in my last post. Feel free to check out the You Capture challenge and join us next week.

I love these pictures Alice, they are like the other ones you posted with the trees reflected in them and they have stuck in my head every since I saw them! So original!
