Yeah... I thought I had two more days to procrastinate shooting for this challenge! HA!

So... afternoon of rollover, I took a framed photo of my Hubby from many years ago before I even knew how to PP, off the wall and headed out toward the pasture. I had something else entirely different on my mind, but then I saw the dappled light in the woods... and decided to start there.

I like this. I took several (okay MANY shots from different angles and this one seemed to work best because of the horse's head being "in front of" the reflected real tree. It seemed to me that he was escaping the original photograph and going out in the 'real world' again.

It's an odd crop, I think... and that might hurt me, but... the framed photo was so large, that to include it all made the horse and rider too small with 800 pixels limit.

The BW really made the reflections vs "real world" confusing and, I think, is what makes this image "work" for me.

I can't even begin to guess how this will score. The thumbnail isn't exciting at all... One has to see the reflections as reflections.

The ambiguity between the real reflections and the captured image is a little bit brilliant. Really like this.
