Let's take photos of reflected objects this month. Not simply reflected light -- make sure it's objects or people that are being reflected. The reflecting surface can be something shiny, glass, plastic, water, your car, a mirror, a wine glass, an eyeball ... use your imagination.

Remember, a simple reflection won't be enough to win this contest. Make sure your composition is compelling: Maybe it tells story in one frame, is humorous or baffling or intriguing, or perhaps it's just a stunning visual.

Here are some tips and examples for you:

Photography apps for your phone
