A creative approach to this challenge, I like it despite it feeling rather "lobsided".

Clearly the best "out of the box" image in the challenge. This is simply brilliant. It should be the overall winner, but it won't be sadly. Well done.

Love how the color was inverted in this shot! Such a different twist. Love this!!! And the black sunbursts, just amazing!

Effective in negative, but also really quite nice when I stare at it for awhile, then turn and look at my blank white wall where it now appears as a positive.

A striking composition, albeit an unconventional landscape. I also see possibilities for non-negative and landscape format compositions (especially with such mirror perfect reflections).

I assume you tried this image without the inverted color scheme? I think the inverted color kinda takes away from what could otherwise be a really nice image...

Oh so clever! love it and beautifully exposed to get that much cripness even in the reflection.
