Weekend Reflection - Picture window


The 18ft Skiff Clubhouse at Double Bay is on the end of a pier jutting into Sydney Harbour. Behind this plate of glass, is the bar. The ghostly figures are members having a drink in the late afternoon.

Noice scene, as a friend of mine might say. Would love to be sitting in one of those boats right now.

"Pretty as a picture" window. I love the way this image plays with reality, Julie. Excellent capture.

This is fantastic! I live the wonderful scene and that fact that it's a reflection makes it all the more impressive.

I've never been to New England but my wife and I really want to go. It's supposed to be beautiful especially in the fall.

Just gorgeous. The way the window serves as a frame for the bay behind is really lovely.

Lois said...

What a beautiful reflection Julie! It almost looks like a painting.

It looks like a beautiful spring day for taking photographs. I'll bet you had quite a time of it.

This one really does give meaning to the words picture window. What a wonderfully clear reflection and such a lovely scene to reflect. You are getting great shots from your new part of town.

Really good reflection, very clear. Hope the move went well. Question - what colour saturation and sharpness settings are you using. I've tried a couple of settings but not sure which I prefer. I like the level of saturation you have.

That's a fantastic shot Julie. I never would have thought of photographing that. It's brilliant.

Such a vivid reflection it looks like a mural. Great shot. Did I miss something...you have moved? Have fun in your new abode.

I like this: boats are boats, even in a reflection and surrounded by ghostly drinkers!

Ken Mac said...

two fantastic shots in one!

It's really pretty you'd think you were looking straght at the bay not through a window.

I love shots like this. THere's so much to see. You can just spend time looking all arouond. You managed to keep the great color of the boats as well.

It looks like a poster on the window! Fantastic!

Julie said...

Friends: the move has been completed. However, my ISP and Telstra are taking their time giving me access. 8 working days plus $145 and the contract must restart. They know when they have you over a barrell.

It seems that reflections tend to enhance the beauty of the scenery... Fantastic shot!

Michael said...

Different way to look at the boats. Nice picture.

Stephany said...

Now that is a picture window! Wonderful reflections.

What a fantastic, reflective photo in the window! I guess I'm the last person in the world to comment on it. Better late than never!

I had to look twice as I wasn't sure if it was a painting. The reflection makes for a beautiful scene.
