I love this photo. I was hoping the score would be high enough to put it on my top row. This is the first time I've had 7 Favs during voting. But since it didn't make the top row, I'll just have to put it on my second row.

And yes, it is legal. It is a reflection of the little girl in front of the Komodo Dragon exhibit at the zoo. The dragon and the girl were really connecting -- nose to nose through the glass. So this photo is of a special relationship.

Awesome image, really conveys the challenge theme perfectly with a great balance between the two subjects. I did not get a chance to vote but thus would have been a top pick for me.

Imaginatively well done image I'm scoring a 9 and hope it's legal. I can't imagine anything but a double exposure which might not be.

This is so lovely - the contrast between the sweet girl and the icky reptile, and the combination of colors - I just find it so striking. It's one of my absolute favorites of this challenge.
