Heavily cropped from the original image. I had planned on submitting this less heavily cropped version, but I felt that the reflection didn't stand out enough for the challenge. Hope I made the right choice here.

I gave this a 9...it really has so much going for it...the gentle touch of the wing and the water...the flight...the composition...the blue...all form leave a great imapct...congrats on a top 5 finish. Cropping it the way you did was the amster stroke of genius, cause it leaves the viewer imagining what is happening beyond the frame

Exquisite simplicity, rien de trop.

This is my avourite of the water reflections. The composition is lovely, the exposure good (always tricky with white feathers), and the wavy reflection really interesting. Bumped from 8 to 9.
