I was racking my brain for ideas on the Metal challenge. There's so much around I was having a hard time coming up with ideas. I finally took an old 12-guage shotgun shell (3 1/4inch shell, #6 shot), used a knife and uncrimped the end, emptied most of the pellets out on a handheld mirror and stood the shotgun shell up in the middle of them. I then set the mirror on a fence post outside where the only other reflection was the sky. I didn't rotate the image back to vertical because I thought the horizontal view was more of an illusion.

Veyr nice indeed! Love the colours and light. Is it perhaps slightly oversharpened?
(Could be just my monitor)

interesting, took me a few seconds to realize what I was looking at. I wish you'd framed it as a diagonal, the composition seems weak and static to me.

OK, I think I figured out how you did this, and I'm assuming it involves a mirror and 90 degree counter-rotation? Wonderful shot! Really made me think. This is an example of what's great about dpchallenge, photographers inpiring other photographers.
