Default The Photographer - Reflections

No special processing was used for this shot. Of course, it's not a great shot, and special processing wouldn't have helped. It's a self portrait, err, sort of.

Dave,
Is the reflection the bottom or the top. If the bottom the reflection is unusual since it is right side up. Or is this multiple mirrors/reflecting surfaces?
Aloha

Actually, it's just a car. The top reflection is from the window of the car, the bottom is from the doors body.

Interesting idea, would never have thought of shooting a self portrait off a cars' body.

It was fun, the white line is actually the top of the cars door, and separates the reflections.

I looked at this photo for a long time trying to figure it out. The top reflection is compressed vertically while the bottom reflection is even more distorted. I was hoping you would provide an explanation...thanks.

It's "found art," since I didn't intend this shot. It's a crop from a much larger picture.
