I went out for a while this afternoon, but the weather was terrible and I hardly got any shots that I like. In fact, I only got this one – the rest are just grey cold shots of a grey cold landscape.

This one though, I like and, in case you're wondering, it is a straight photograph (with a bit of tweaking here and there).

This is way cool! I'm having a little trouble getting my eyes and perspective around it, but that's a big part of the cool. I don't want to spoil it for others so I'll just say that I see two images (but I'm not saying two exposures), with a little post processing to enhance the foreground. I love the incongruity of the foreground and the background. I looks and feels Jules Verne.

Sorry ... And Dr. Who works, too.

Very cool. Took me a while to work this one out and now I like it even more ;-)

Was just about to make what I thought was a clever observation - then read the title! Crazy but fab shot :-)

ok, got it, it took 5mins of concentration, but I got it. In fact I looked at this on my phone earlier and it looked more like a person then... Now I see it on the full screen its a lot clearer as to how this was done. I like it a lot. Not bad for a grey grey grey day....oh have you lost a bit more hair now ?....csj....P.S been sick this week, some wierd stomach issue... chat soon.

I love it! Open to many reading possibilities and there is a kid of feeling of sacred and profane I can get from it. Am I crazy?

An amazing image! The reflection gives it a very surreal look, has the feeling of a old abandoned carnival.

it has something special...

Creative indeed, very creative in fact. Can keep staring at it but I can't form an opinion as to whether I actually like it. All I know is that, yes, its creative.

Thanks all.

Sharla: Jules Verne would have been a good reference too.

/\/\J: I don't think you're missing anything - it's just that everyone else is trying to work out which bits are behind the glass and which are the reflections.

What IS this machine?

Looks like a lowtech UFO just landed on the townsquare!
