Jaguar show reflected by Celeste Mookherjee
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



I captured this at a Jaguar show held on the meadow at my local botanical garden. A red classic (Jaguar XK 140, mid-1950s vintage) caught my eye, and the chrome back of the mirror gave a reflected view of the show. It was challenging to capture this view and not include myself. :) (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/100 sec., ISO 100, morning sun, handheld)

    That is so cool Celeste! Love the red, great focus and clarity and awesome reflection!

  • Thanks, Joanne. It was the red that attracted me initially, and then I was so thrilled to see the reflection in the back of the mirror!

    You did a great job of not including “you” in the shot. Love the shiny reflections and the fire engine red is so clear and vibrant! Love it!

  • Thanks, Christine. It was a gorgeous old auto, lovingly maintained, and I can’t resist red and reflections.

    This really is a stunning magazine quality shot! The darkness behind the mirror focussed my attention on the mirror scene itself, which in turn is stood on a base of reflective red. I’m merely a camera and photo enthusiast but I want you to know how really good I think this shot is!

  • Thank you very much, Mark, for your very thoughtful comment! I was quite happy to discover the reflection, and from there it was a matter of trying different angles to achieve the best image I could manage. I’m so glad you like it!

    Great lines and reflections Celeste !!!

  • Thanks as always, Thomas, for your great comments and faves! This is something of an oldie in my RB portfolio, but it’s one I still like a lot (I have a thing for unusual reflections).
