Photohunters: Upside Down

Photobucket

I like reflection shots but sometimes it can be disorienting when an image is upside down. I think I prefer the second shot because there is a frame of reference with part of the photograph right side up, and part is a reflection. The first house which only shows the reflection is too upside down for me.

Great minds! I flipped some reflection photos too. You are right, something about that house looks very strange. But it's a cool looking photo.

Have a nice weekend.

Happy PH and happy weekend!

I like both shots, actually. Though I definitely see what you mean about how the first shot can be disorienting! :)

I guess a lot of us went with reflections. Yours are beautiful...

I decided on a reflection this week as well. Mine is a much more common reflection though.

Marites said...

I like the disorientation of the first shot.

Teena in Toronto said...

Hard to believe they are reflections!

I played too :)

Mrs Mecomber said...

Same here, I like the reference to balance the photo. Gorgeous house!

Here's mine... kinda wordy today. I didn't want to go on a trapeze bar and I have no pics of mountains. :S

I don't know. I sort of like the reflections without references. It makes you stop and do a double take. Both your pictures are very good, though. I think it is a matter of taste which way you prefer the reflections.

Sherry at EX Marks the Spot said...

It really is disconcerting to look at some things turned upside down.

Great reflection in the second photo.

Nice reflections Carver.

diXymiss said...

I have to agree, there's something about the second shot that appeals to my minds' eye ~ must be frame of reference. Happy hunting!

Ayie said...

such a beautiful reflection, it totally mimics everything!
