Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #54: Detail

Or perhaps in this case, I should say Distorted Detail. This is an outrageously distorted detailed reflection from the same black BMW car I posted yesterday. You can clearly see the door handle front and (almost) center, and down in the lower left, you can see the seam of the back passenger door. But after that, the fun begins.

Above the door handle, you can’t even see the black of the car, as the curvature reflects the bright blue sky and the Norman styled church tower. Then below that, there’s green grass, and in the handle itself is a distorted me with red hair (that part is true to life) and my arms akimbo. Then there’s a quarter oval of blue sky again with perhaps a few white clouds reflected (the optics of curvatures working again). Then below another curve of the door there’s my hands, phone camera, my shirt and pants, and more green grass. And if you look in the lower right corner you will see a distorted sign, and the dogs – Teddy the labradoodle, and if you follow the line of the leash, just a peek of the face of my grey miniature schnauzer, Zoë.

This photo was just too fun to pass up, and it seemed to fit better into P. A. Moed’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Detail than anywhere else.

Enjoy!

      1. Thanks! The shot was sort of accidental. I was squatting down to get some details on the wheels and I noticed this super cool distorted reflection. It was too good to pass up. I shot it instead of the tires, and then had to do a lot of editing work – cropping out the extraneous “not reflection” parts of the car and the distration of completely different reflections in the car’s windows. Then I needed to play around with intensity, definition, etc to make the distortion clear enough that the viewer could see what the images were, etc. It was a huge amount of fun. 🙂
