Nice except the colors look just a bit ovedone somehow for a pavement reflection . I like the abstract feel of it though. Penny Street

Thanks Jano,
this a just a normal reflection of a normal lantern on the wet asphalt. I called it "Broken Lantern" because the reflection in the small water drops in the bottom look like small pieces of broken glass. Some "puddle" spots (on the right) reflect sky and therefore look blue.The "border" on the top third is a pavement border. Do you see it now ?

Ky - is this a reflection on the asphalt of a broken lantern? If so, well done. I must say it is very abstract and would work well in an abstract challenge!!! But unless I knew it was wet, I'd say it is very abstract instead. Well done. jano

Tv, what could be more "wet" then puddles on the wet asphalt after rain ? But I see your point tv. Photographer and viewer see the same picture differently because I know and remember the whole environment while you as a viewer see just the picture. If you don't see here wet, that only means that I didn't manage to capture and show you what I have seen here.

K, this is a good abstract selection of reality. But, "wet" it does not say, visually, as it needs to. Still better than mine if you listen to Rod. -tv

Debi, KiKi, Doug - thank you for your comments. This is a reflection of a street lamp in a puddle on an asphalt pavement. The blue spots are the reflections of a twilight sky. I was on the way home from office when my attention was attracted by this reflection, especially in the pavement border and in the water drops. It looked like a liquid gold.

Definitely an abstract. I can't tell what I'm looking at even with the title. The color and texture are good though. -Doug

Looks like an abstract to me. Is it a lantern floating in water? Debi
