Held up a mirrror in front of a mirror. Everything you see is a reflection. Sometimes my ideas look better in my head than they do on the computer screen.

Neat idea, How many Bynxs' are in the shot???

There is a room in the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany that has mirrors all around creatingthe illusion that the room goes on forever.

Well done, and beautifully arranged, Bynx. I was sure someone would get round to one of these before me, and I thought it likely you'd be first!

Back to the drawing board!

I think I count 9 of me Mugmar.

Alan, this doesnt close the door to trying it yourself. Lets see what you come up with. Im sure not happy with my version.

I'm surprised it took you until Saturday to try this shot, Bynx.:-) It is the kind of shot I'd expect from you.

Thanks ladies.
Patti, I had the idea earlier but I had to borrow a large mirror before I could make the shot.

Nice job, Bynx. I'm not sure how you handle DOF in a situation like this, let alone exposure. I suppose you should stop the lens down to minimum aperture and I think I might try setting the shutter speed to 1/2 step slower than the meter recommends.

One of the mirrors is tilted slightly or you would have gotten repeated reflections until the light ran out.

Hi Bynx

That's great! I was waiting for someone to do this shot (of course it had to be mr Bynx!!)

Well done. l like the way that the little orange / yellow light near the viewfinder at the BACK of the camera is also visible, trailing away in the reflections.

Thanks for pointing that out about the light Paul. I wondered what that was. Now when I look at the back of the camera I see it is a small blinking green light. So each light you see in the pic is the backview of the camera. I flipped the image horizontally so that the type would read right.
