Rainy Day Rose Reflections DSC_2119

Today was too wet and windy to be out and about with my camera, so I had to resort to a rose rescued from the wind, a spay bottle, a mirror and a black background. I usually use black perspex for my reflection shots and I think that it gives a sharper reflection. All of my mirror shots seem to have a hint of a second reflection around the edges of the petals, something I don't get with the perspex.
I feel rather that instead of going out today, you chose to photograph this beautiful flower in a special way with brilliant results.

Beautiful composition! Just curious, Is Perspex a plastic or glass?
May 30th, 2020  
@redy4et Perspex is plastic.. My black piece give beautiful reflections but it scratches so easily.

Oh, this is really lovely -- the execution so well done. I don't know what a perspex is but you've made me curious so I'll look it up. Is it different from an ordinary black acrylic sheet?
May 31st, 2020  
@jyokota That's exactly what it is, so no need to look it up.
May 31st, 2020  
@merrelyn -- thanks! I did look them up and had initially put it in my shopping basket, but it seemed to be a brand of acrylic, which I already have. I really need to practice using mine, as I have had it only a short time.

@jyokota I put mine in front of a black blind which stops unwanted reflections from the wall and ceiling. The perspex seems to give sharper reflections than a mirror, but it scratches very easily.
