    The three star-shaped lights must be an effect of the long-exposure flashes on street lighting and other bright lights. Brings out well the phenomena called light-pollution that increasingly plague astronomy, even in semi-rural areas. Amazing what you can do with a camera. The subject image is remarkably clear.

    You answered my comment above, Tony. I donīt understand the technical part like the lenght of exposure but the mirror effect is again ghostly. As if there was a seconf city burried in the water.

    I like all your photos NS, but I prefer those in black and white. One notices details, one wouldn't in colour.
    The interesting trait here: you can hardly distingish the reflection from the original.
    Is there any kind of exposition that might make this difference more evident?
    Thanks Danik. Yeah, removing colour and using high contrast will accentuate different things than a colour photo does.
    As for your question, not really. If the water wasn't so calm, that would do it.

    Thanks, mate. Now here, all, is an upward shot taken in the inner courtyard of the Nobis Hotel, where we stayed in Stockholm. Having tea in there is one elegant experience.

    Also, while in Stockholm, there were suddenly police motorcades everywhere, and soldiers on horsies, which we learned was the royal guard or escort or whatever. We learned that the following day, the Prince was to be baptized, so royals and dignitaries were arriving for that, and the King himself--although we also learned that the King is just an ordinary guy who drives himself to work every day, and no one makes a big deal out of him. Anyway, while walking about with my niece and nephew, we suddenly had to wait on the corner because these fine fellows were trotting by. ;-)

    I just got back from Colorado Springs. I have a few pictures of the "Garden of the Gods", a Pikes Peak nature area, which I will share when I am more awake. These pictures are more on the order of a tourist taking pictures with his phone which is what I imagined Tyrion Cheddar was doing with his phone in Stockholm. Tony Walton's scene through the window of an abandoned house and North Star's reflections of trees in a lake looked like they took more thought than I gave to any of mine. The sun was so bright, I could barely see what I was taking a picture of. I even asked myself why I bothered taking any pictures except that the battery in my phone was charged and I had extra disk space.

    I look forward to seeing them. I love pics like that, polaroids are my favourite. I buy alot of ''found photography'' - it's often the best stuff I've seen.

    The rain on the screen gives this picture a special atmospheric character, the horizon looks to be heaving as well.

    Yea, I enjoy having fun with picturesque photos, give it some effect. Shortly, I'm going to be shifting to more portraits - need to find time, experience in that genre.
