*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A very intriguing image that meets the challenge.

As with the other submissions I've critiqued for this challenge, I have to begin by admitting that I am not familiar enough with JJBeguin's work to be able to comment with any authority, however, I will do my best. Your comments are a good guide as to his and your aims with your work, thank you.

I have to say that after the initial confusion which made me look harder and then to see and appreciate better the image itself, I like what I see, I find it quite fascinating. You have done well to find the scene and transform it the way you have. quite simple yet effective. I love the shapes and the reflections and the eventual giveaway of the upside down nature of what we're looking at. Your exposure is good, you have got the snow white without too much sacrifice of the water's highlights, though I detect a blue tint that might benefit from some white balance correction.

I like your composition it works very well indeed and so to do the people here, a very respectable score for a very respectable entry, well done Sid.

The disconnected scenes almost look like a JJ. Very nice.

Amazing image. Like a mirror cut into another world. In my top 5 of the challenge. 10.

It took some effort before I was able to move beyond the shard of mirror interpretation, such is the compelling force of this image. I'll ascribe it to magic. I'd put this one on my wall.

This is very smart and beautiful! It looks like an interesting asymmetric frame for the fascinating landscape.8

This is truly intriguing! I have *NO* idea what this is about. Love it. Dunno how it applies to jj, but 10 anyway.

Landscapes as I like them, adequately disconcerting and halcyon.

Disorienting composition approaches the surreal.

I had to pause for awhile to really study this before I figured it out.
Kudos to you for a great photograph which made me want to do that. I like the center reflected image a lot - stark, like winter.
