I enjoy strolling around finding something new to capture every time I go. I captured this photo at the front of a closed store, the dark glass of which reflected beautifully what was across it, as if saying, 'I am you.'"

image captionStephan Martin: "It shows rain water that accumulated in a Paris street gutter, reflecting a hotel sign and a bit of sky. To me it is reality catching up with fiction, in the same way street artists paint trompe-l'oeil frescoes to create an optical illusion. Here, the reflection brings an escape from the dense urban surroundings."

image captionCarrina Blake: "Adam posed in a bear mask in front of a mirror. Adam and Jack are my twin sons. It represents life as a twin - looking the same, but sometimes wearing a mask and feeling different, being compared with each other and searching for what makes you unique. Always having a comparison reflected back at you and knowing that you're not alone."
