You have definitely met the challenge. I think that it is effective how the lines start on the upper and lower left and proceed down and through the frames. It really gives the eyes a nice path to follow.

The picture seems to be a bit hazy to me. Not from lack of focus or anything, just not real clear and distinct. Perhaps it was the time of day that you were shooting?? Also, I think the overexposed parts in at the end of the reflection are a little distracting. Could you have shot from the other end, or at another time of day?

You have definitely achieved a symmetrical shot, and one that is very interesting. I found myself looking at both halves to see which was "real" and which was the reflection. Good work.

best to you in future challenges.

Nice image.

A bit bright/light for me, but I really enjoy this idea and the lines and patterns you've created and captured here. Engaging and interesting.

Such an eye catching shot. Although the balance seems to be thrown to the left a bit since there is not tree on the right and the top line flows to the left, I can appreciate that this was probably not possible to get perfect. You'll be getting a high vote from me none the less.

what is that?

Good concept, but overexposed. I like it.

Great idea! Either your camera isn't very good or you over "smoothed" the photo in post-processing. The shot is over-exposed too.

Totally surreal, what is this mysterious wall? polished granite? Glass? I would have ranked it higher, but I keep thinking of the vast potential this prop has. What about shooting at night with an illuminated subjects at varying distances from the wall. Nice photo, good composition, meets challenge 7.

Too much light for me

Pity you didn't catch the tree in the left foreground on the right. More original than a lot of this week's 'reflection from water' shots though...

The Glare and the beam along the top are distracting.
