    Not sure if this is considered abstract or what. C&C welcome.

    Out here in BC, we call them 'feathers'! :p

    I like it; I think it needs a touch more contrast however, as it's very mid-tone rich. It would also be nice to see the whole thing in focus, OR shoot it from a slightly different perspective so that it vanished into the image.

    To me it is hard to figure out what is going on. Is the feather above water or ...? I love the idea though. It is nice to try something new once in a while.

    I think it's a table top, or something similar made of wood, with a nice shiny clear coat on it. If you look closely, you can almost make out the wood grain. Or it's a piece of glass on a table top.

    The feather is sitting atop a highly polished or uber polyurethaned wood surface. The grain is a tell.

    Nice one Ron.

    yes, i was seeing the grain of the wood too.. but i was pointing out what was causing the mirror.. which seems to be glass, or plastic

    ahh... I just wasn't sure about the change in grain. To me it looks like wood at the top, but at the bottom it looks rockier to me anyway.
