Thanks for all your comments. This was done by taking lots of shots of the rippled reflections of a modern brick bridge next to my boat. the 'eyes' are the sky, the dominant colour (red/brown) is the brickwork, the grey/black is the roof of the bridge and the white is the concrete lintels. The ripples were totally unpredictable so I needed a card full of shots to find a 'face'

I see it. Image seems maybe a tad soft. Nice Job!

Well done. Can't wait to see the comments on how it was done. I might have removed the dark mark in the right eye.

A bit abstract but effective. If this is moving water you need to pump up the shutter sppeed a bit to lesson the movement. Nice colors and perfectly exposed.

Excellent and creative entry, strong for this challenge. A bit grainy in shadows but not enough to detract.
