I gave this an 8. Very nice, liked the 'blue'. Difficult, but was a combination of the lack of detail discernible in the textures (which I realize was likely intentional) and the composition, just needed a little less perfect symmetry (maybe) - 'somewhere', for this image, in my opinion - if that makes sense.

Beautiful compostion. The mirror image is perfect, and I also like how the background colour gradually fades from blue to black - makes the white bird even more prominent. Very well shot.

Beautiful - the complete absence of any distracting detail in the water really focuses attention on the bird, reflection and abstract shapes of the image too.

Best: Still indeed..clean colors, excellent exposure control

very nice, but the crop is very boring must say, the photo has totally lost the dynamics, yea i know it actually should be non-dynamic ;-) because it's "still-life" photo but nevertheless i think with wider crop to the left the photo would be pure 10 in my eyes, now it's not ... NHF.
