@Rick: Thanks Rick. Hey man look me up the next time you visit Windsor, maybe we can go out and shoot some folks with out lenses.

Okay now that is cool. I could almost see you walking around town handing people the ball for various portraits.. although you have to make sure no one runs off with your ball :D

Ralph : sounds good, as long as you meant "with OUR lenses" ... ha ha ! My lady has family in Windsor and we hope to visit maybe this Autumn. If so, I'll give you the heads-up.

Great perspective and originality, Rick. The hand with the glass ball and the blurred figure in the background and the clear figure in the glass. Very good. Well done:)

Crystal balls are fascinating ... I have an image I've saved from the Internet where the photographer used one in a cathedral and the image in the ball is right-side-up. I think it had to have been manipulated.

What a unique and eye-catching capture! I love the focus on the face reflected in the ball with the background out of focus.
