I'm not going to cheat. But I took your hints and they made me more confused. It's a mirror image, with exceptions - the sun and the thing itself down the middle. Is this going to have me slapping my forehead when you spring it on us? Or maybe I'm the only one left at this point thick enough to be lost...:-)

Hint #3 -- Under the right conditions, what reflects almost as well as a mirror?

All I can think of (outdoors, anyway) is a nicely polished vehicle, and the only reason I'm thinking of this is that my son and I spent part of yesterday making faces ina coffeepot or, in this case, his car door. Couple of grownups happily behaving like seven-year-olds.

They're flat and transparent. You see hundreds of them every day around town, in your neighborhood,...in your own house!

Apparently, they aren't anywhere in my house. I give up unless you're talking about window panes.

Bingo! Now, the shallower the angle the more windows reflect...

Also, can you see the eaves of a roof in the picture?

You know, I believe I have stolen Jim's thread. Jim, you can have fun with my next post, if I can figure out what it's going to be!

eeek :roll:didnt mean to cause so much confusion!!!

monkey the sun doesn't reflect because of the angle I had to take the photo at. (not through choice, but rather physical constraints!)

cheers. jim

No, confusion is good! It means we're thinking. Even knowing what it is, and covering the left half with my hand, I don't see a window or eave. So sorry! It's still a nice photo - my right brain just isn't letting the left one run today, I'm afraid!

Look in the Landscape section and you will see a daylight shot of the same scene. The window is in the center. The left end of the camera was almost touching the window. The edge of the roof is at the top, slightly right of center. If you raise the brightness on your screen, you can see the frame of the window.
