I was driving home from the office and saw a random tree all by itself decorated with ornaments on a hill off of the highway. The fun: Trying to run across the highway with a tripod and my camera to shoot it. Minor color corrections and minor sharpening were done in cs2

I guess it would be much better without the wrapping - now it seems to spoil otherwise beautiful contrast of the reflection and the background

Interesting and well done!

I guess the thing being reflected is a tree - can't be sure - but at first it looked like a dead ant or some other desiccated insect plastered to the glass.

Very good idea. I would make it a bit more centered and leave out the cellophane, although it does add a nice depth in the mid-bottom area.

Looks like you went to great lengths to convey an idea, but I'm afraid I'm not getting it. It looks like a reflective ornament, but why wrapped in cellophane? Also, the noise in the background is a bit too noticable, and I'd prefer the ornament not quite so close to the edge of the frame.

I like this a lot, but I think the plastic surrounding the bulb takes away from the image.
