The deck had just been refinished a day before when an afternoon thunderstorm hit. The pools of water were there as dusk approached, so I spent half an hour trying to extract any photos that might be worthwhil . This was one of about half a dozen that I kind of liked. Thanks for looking and commenting.

I gave this an 8. Good shot and perspective. Couldn't work out at the time if this was just water with cloud/sky reflections. Either way, your title was good and very apt. Colors were nice and the texture of the wood/deck and the 'quicksilver' was very good. A variation in composition, cropping or angle/perspective (although I realize difficult without losing that unusual reflection), may have made this even better in my opinion.

Wow, I am speechless! Great imagination to come up with this shot, and then being able to capture it perfectly - priceless.

Gorgeous. I love the smooth water and the rougher wood texture next to each other.
