I took this on a walk to Symphony T Station. The time of day was about 3:30 ish. I snapped it quickly, but think it turned out kind of cool. How could I make this better?

This is an interesting photo, reflections that becom the main subject of the photograph. I love the building and the tree reflections, but the sign is a little distracting. The puddles edge, where the snow is, is a very nice touch, it gives some sense of reality to an otherwise "fantasy" photo.

The colors do seem a little flat and the photo could use a little more zing. If this was my photo, I would play with the contract and the color balance just a little bit to add the missing ingredient.

Overall this is a very good photograph, but it lacks punch and that gives it too much of a snapshot feel. Very good try, I suggest you might wantto play with this idea a bit more. I look for a future Monet from you.

LOL that was the only ice I could find around during challenge time. That's why I didn't enter :)

This doesn't look like a watergarden. Am I in the wrong room?

When I see reflections like this I always want to rotate them 180°. Then they become like a picture from a distant world or a dream
