This one certainly confuses the eye. Are the mirrors flat? a box shape? Great lighting, Walter.

I actually built a 5-sided box made from 12X12 inch mirror tiles, just to see what effects I could get. Not sure this shot worked, challenge-wise.

Walter, I think you are very close to getting what Selvin is looking for. The idea is to get the reflection without direct evidence of the mirror. In this case, the edges of the mirror are visible. If you changed your angle a bit or used something to hide the edges, you would have exactly what Selvin is looking for.

In a perfect world I woild have liked the seams to be invisible but Walter the shot is exactly what I am looking for. Seamless shots will take quite a bit of work.

The reflections are sharp and take quite a bit of thought to disentangle. Exactly what I was hoping for.

Thanks.

Aloha

Fun shot, Walter. It looks like you had 4 balls inside the box. I believe a portion of three balls appear on the left side of the picture and everything else is reflection.
