May 2012 Foo Photo Contest - We have a winner!

We had two winners in March so there are two themes for May.

Theme #1 chosen by Nondes is "A Collection" - beer bottle caps, cactuses, rock specimens, antique derealleur parts - anything provided it's artfully presented.

Theme #2 chosen by tizeye is "Reflections" preferably with the photographer not in the reflection unless the photographer is the central or primary subject.

Rules:
Themes: see above
- You must be the photographer
- One photo per person per theme
- Try to make the photo recent

Good luck everyone!

A Collection (Actually only part of a collection - over several blocks and a city park)



Reflection
This one I just took yesterday and processed this AM. Couldn't use flash with all the mirrors while correctly exposed window underexposes room, and correctly exposed room blows out the window. Camera on tripod, self timer so I am out of the picture, bracketed shot HDR retains details of both the room and window.
