Thought I'd enter a posting for the theme "reflection". Browsed my pics to find a reflection in water but came up short. Had to resort to my old shoebox pics and found this zebra duo though which gave me the idea of a reflection in a vertical axis...albeit not a perfect one.

hello Edwin,
a creative take on the teme of reflection. You should add it to todays frifay theme titled "refletions".

Hello Edwin
This is a very original reflexion. I thought it was the same annimal. I love that shot and the interpretation you made of it.


i've done the funniest contribution to the theme, nice poses captured

Hi Edwain
For originality this has got to take the prize.
You could call this book ends.
Very good capture of these lovely animals.

Great focus here Edwin,
Creative idea well seen and captured.
As central focused-based compositions go this works really
well due to the equal balance of the frame overall.
Well done.
- Vincent

Nicely spotted, Edwin. Pleasant light and tones. Good shot!

Bonsoir Edwin
J'aime beaucoup cette façon de traiter le thème, que je trouve très originale. Superbe composition, bravo !

Hoi Brokken P
Knap plaatje vriend, prachtig scherp, en vrij uniek hier op TL. Past ook mooi in het thema. De trillende lucht van de hitte is een mooi detail in deze foto! Toch opvallend dat je zo'n mooie foto hebt kunnen maken met een C*n*n.

Hi Edwin...nice Zebra shot..well balanced, well composed.

Hi Edwin,
How I like your humour!
Genial idea to interpretate this theme! Excellente photo with a good use of light and fine details. Bravo! Annie

Very original Edwin and a lovely clear photo of the Zebra. You managed to get a excellent shot in spite of the harsh light and the heat of the day as is clearly shown in the image. Africa at its best! That is VERY well done!


Hé this is fun Edwin, not only a beautiful picture in wonderful surroundings, but a reflection with a twist, you can add humor to the categories.

The skin on those animals looks very attractive - I mean that you captured the texture and colour perfect - otherwise you might think I want a rug....


Dat zie je waarschijnlijk alleen in een draaimolen op de kermis. Alleen, dan zijn het houten paarden. Goed gespot. Leuke plaat.

Fascinerend dieren zijn dit toch....
deze zijn prachtig getekend en mooi scherp.
En wat een mazzel, dat je zo'n compositie kunt maken.
Ze staan er heel mooi bij.
Verder staan ze heel mooi los van de kleurige achtergrond.
Al met al een mooie plaat Edwin.


Hello Edwin!
Nice idea and very beautiful comopsition with great colours!
Perfect detaila nd clarity!
Excellent done!
Best regards!

...I return... :)

Hi Edwin,persoonlijk ben ik niet zo een dierenfoto freak,maar dit is natuurlijk iets waar ik niet omheen kan!
Wat een scherpte maar vooral goede timing.
Dank Ed.

Hello Edwin

haha they are not speaking?? excellent shot here and an inventive idea for the theme. Nice sharp detail and a well balanced shot.

TFS and for joining in the theme

kind regards Helen

P.S. I have been reading the notes in forum about this lens and I am very tempted to raid my savings now. I have looked through your gallery and read a few websites.. seems to me like a pretty amazing bit of kit and if your results are anything to go by then its worth every penny.

Hello Edwin,
That is so funny wild life shot:D
Good details and composition. TFS
