Oh, I can almost feel the smell of asphalt!!
Makes a lot sense for me, at least, who had an old problematic pick-up once(but learned much from it,too).
I think Minolta company should buy this photo

You are probably going to be told by someone that this has been done many times before - don't worry about that, this I think is a good shot although I would personally get rid of the blown out top left corner since it is very distracting to the eye. Although I like the way the foreground & background DOF highlights the subject, I think the foreground blurr is a little overwhelming.

Thanks for the comment, I'd have move closer to the sunglasses itself if it weren't for the fact that myself would be showing on the reflection, and I'd have trouble focusing with that lens at the time. Maybe I'll try it with a Macro nextime......

I'll be glad to be the spoil-sport here. It's not that it's been done many times before. Although that is true, the problem for me with the shot is that the framing cries out for a subject matter that makes use of it. Just something reflecting in sunglasses is pointless. If the content were something that made the perspective dramatically appropriate, it would be a great shot. As it is, it just shows some technical merit in getting the shot properly exposed.

I'd have to explain a little bit on that, the subject matter is the car in the reflection, of which we built ourselves.....We were out testing that day and I figure instead of just a people standing around talking shot I'd do it from the reflection of the sunglasses I am wearing.....


Other shot from that day is in another thread in the sports & action forum of this webpage...
