Get Pushed 105: St Malo Docks

My Get Pushed partner for this week, Sally Ings @salza challenged me to "capture something that has either a shadow or a reflection as it's main subject."

Here is a picture taken in the rear view mirror of a parked motorcycle, which shows St. Malo docks with the town behind.
@salza Hi Sally - right at the very last moment, here is my response to your challenge. I hope it meets with your approval.

Are you out for a ride or do you live near the ocean. Don't remember seeing many port pictures before. Interesting challenge in some ways.

I like this one better. Have you thought about a tighter crop?
July 27th, 2014  
Love this. Clever capture.

Great execution on your challenge. Well done!

Nicely done Richard. Get pushed is fun. I haven't had time for it, but hope to get back to it in the fall. :)

@tigerdreamer Thanks Karen - yes I did think about a tighter crop, but I wanted to show the contrast between the commercial cargo boat in the background and the yachts and the town itself in the reflection. I defocussed and lowered the exposure on the background in order to make the mirror the point of interest and to further emphasize this, the mirror is placed at the point of thirds.

Great effect and really answers your get pushed challenge!

@joansmor We live about 70 mins drive from the ocean - our house is equidistant from the north and south coasts of Brittany.
