Great colors, composition and balance. I like the shadows, not obstructing the building or reflection! Great job! 10

Not much to pick at... nicely done. I like the balance/contast(?) of different blues between the water and sky. I'm glad you didn't try to push the sky to a deep blue -- the way it is works wonderfully.

nice reflection but the barrel distortion makes this look like the Leaning Hyatt of Pisa.

Great reflection! It's great taht you were able to find the water so calm! Nice colors -- I assume this was either sunrise or sunset.

Excellent photo. Like the reflection and the brightness of the colors.

This is a nice shot, but the main focus of it - the Hyatt building - isn't very interesting. The picture's composition and color is nice, though.

I never knew Wichita to be so nice :)
The reflection is nice, but the main piece of the photo is the hotel which is pretty simple. You've got warm light and calm waters.
You've split the image in half horizontally - try to avoid this. Some photos it'll work ok in, but only a few.

Great symetry, great colour, good sharpness, lovely reflection shot. Taken at the right time of the day from what I can see. This should score very high.

I'd think the Wicita Chamber of Commerce would pay for this shot! Amazing clarity. Good capture on the cloud reflection.

A lovely shot overall, very well balanced and the reflection in the water is fantastic! Originally this did not sit right with me, can't exactly explain why but coming back and looking again I think it was the shadowing on the right side that threw me off. But upon looking at it closer, it works well, showing the day in progress. Good clarity and focus, captures the essence of the challenge very well. Raising the score much higher on this one.

Good use of the ROT, good color, content and framing. Capturing the complete reflection of the main building is what makes this image special.

It is said not to put the horizon in the middle, but it definetely works here. It gives a sense of symmetry with the reflection.

Very nicely captured! You got a great reflection, the weather must have been good for you to get that still a water, normally I'm there when it's a little choppy. Nice glow on the hotel too. Very picture perfect, almost like a postcard!
