TechRepublic's camera phone challenge: Reflections

Things we used to do as kids

We challenged the TechRepublic community to submit photos of reflections that they had taken with a camera phone.

The photo we selected for 1st place was taken by TR member bill.andersen with a Nokia 6280 in Denmark. He said, "It was during a visit by my sisters, and we were talking about things we used to do when we were kids for laughs. Obviously, they were simpler times."

wishing I could get a much better camera phone. Many of these are sooo clear and bright! Puts my poor Motorola to shame

The man in "image #1" has way too much time of his hands! But then again, so does the person who took the picture.

I remember doing this in primary school when I was seven. It was funny then...

Nice shot but shadows are not mirror images as are reflections.

I remember flying over some African country and seeing a complete rainbow around the shadow of our plane. It was glorious

I realize I'll probably end up looking dense, but what do you mean about "shadows?" Those reflections on the glass are just those, reflections of the light from the man, I don't get your origional argument.

And it is a shadow. Clouds can't reflect an image. That photo fails to conform to contest regulations. Shun! Shunnn....

Clouds are made of what? So why wouldn't a cloud reflect an extremely bright star from above the plane? Otherwise, that plane is flying so high it's the other side of the sun!!

I was in a rush and didn't even look at half the photo's thought I had, so please forgive the "dense" question. :) By the way, I totally agree!
