Family Room Reflections

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 2 June 2009 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

This one is for Florence and Karine. It's a shot from inside of our family room. And coming from Jack (and not an artist with this style), it seems perfect for Silly Tuesday.

NIKON D700 1/25 second F/9.0 ISO 200 62 mm (35mm equiv.)

Cricket-Tammy from Alabama, United States

This is lovely. At first I didn't read your description. I was going to ask how you processed this. I think it is a beautiful image.

2 Jun 2009 5:14am

@Cricket-Tammy: Actually I did next to nothing with this shot. It was totally for fun.

ordinaryimages from Kentucky Bluegrass, United States

Oregon is a silly place to have a Tuesday. silly...bow!

2 Jun 2009 5:38am

@ordinaryimages: Silly; Tuesday; my wife goes nuts when I repeat myself.

djedfre from schaumburg, United States

I think you are both silly and creative....I really quite love this shot!!!! Thank you again Jack for becoming Silly Papa whilst I'm away. I will try to visit every Tuesday even if I don't manage to post!
Take care my friend and 'Go the Silliness' :-)

Hi Jack ! Gives the impression you're living on trees ! Must be great but a bit risky, no ? ;-)

une lumière magique !

Craig from Vacaville, California, United States

Excellent! I love the capture of the reflection. I don't understand why it is silly though.

2 Jun 2009 10:50am

@Craig: Because it is so unlike me. I just don't do that sort of thing. The only reason for this shot was because it was all in the capture; no manipulation whatsoever.

Marie LC from Voiron, France

Un peu comme si deux photos avaient été superposées

Nicholas from Shah Alam, Malaysia

Lol was a bit confused then I got it. Binoculars for bird watching as well?

2 Jun 2009 11:25am

@Nicholas: The binoculars was a sheer stroke of luck.

Vachel from Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

amazing and interesting shot..

I'm trying to figure out what is reflection and what is real, good job!

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

I like this! A really fun layery kind of effect! (Beautiful yard too!)

Yvonne Simons from Tilburg, Netherlands

Very creative!

Marie-Hélène Ammor from Casablanca/Paris, Morocco

Superb ! I love the colors and these suggested reflections are beautiful !

Don from spokane, United States

A nice reflection, indoors and out, shot. Nice to see your lush view out the family room window.

2 Jun 2009 2:41pm

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

L'interférence entre l'intérieur et l'extérieure donne une vision magique, un peu comme si la pièce avec les meubles étaient disposés directement dans la nature. Etonnante mais séduisante idée.

2 Jun 2009 2:52pm

@Evelyne Dubos: It was all by luck; nothing really by design. I noticed the reflections so vivid in the window and I wondered how they would capture; so I fired away.

alex centrella from California, United States

great shot john,,

Ajay from Pune, India

I find it quite creative than silly. But yes, as you said it doesn't match your style of shots with no room for imperfections.

2 Jun 2009 4:12pm

@Ajay: What I meant was that I don't do composites. Plus, I am not nearly as creative as I would like to be.

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld(old Pembroke Dock boy,Wales), Germany

I´m havinga hard job finding this silly !! It´s far too good for that !!

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

if this is Jack's idea of silly, I wonder what John thinks of it!!! Nice catch with that reflection...before I read description, I thought you were building a virtual tree house!!
Happy Tuesday!!

willow from Chelsea, United States

Tough to figure out what's what in this one. Silliness rules!

2 Jun 2009 5:43pm

@willow: "Tough to figure out what's what" - now that's the story of my life.

baobab from Cambridge, United States

I love the inside-outside feel of this shot - somewhat reminiscent of Rabbit's Alice In Wonderland style. from the reflections it is clear that you are at home in the woods.

2 Jun 2009 5:48pm

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A beautiful shot. The reflections are amazing of course.

2 Jun 2009 5:59pm

@Steve Rice: It was a Sunday morning, and I remember how dumbstruck I was when I saw the reflections in the window. The results turned out better than I had even hoped.

sherri from Little Rock, Arkansas, United States

Really nice through the window capture. The colors and clarity are exceptional.

2 Jun 2009 6:55pm

@sherri: Thanks, Sherri. Wish that you were on Am3. The shot on your blog right now is perfect for Silly Tuesday.

Richard_Irwin from Belper, United Kingdom

I think it has worked really well, the binoculars add a funny dimension in the way they are placed

2 Jun 2009 11:21pm

@Richard_Irwin: Wish that I could say that the placement was intentional.

MysLykeMeeh from Toronto, Canada

Oh my, but you had me puzzled at what I was looking at, at first. I love reflection shots and this view through your family room window is great, silly or not. =)
