Thanks to everybody for their comments. People seems to be 'split' about what to do with the little branch on the right. I left it because in my eyes it was 'balancing' the picture and with the 'clouds pattern' it was not tatally 'unlinked' to the mirror , it makes like an arc from the bottom right side to the top of the mirror.

The branches definately add some framing to this shot. The blue sky and yellow bus add plenty of colors. 7.

I'd score this higher without the twig/branches in the frame. (8)

Very nice concept!

I think this is an excellent photo but can't relate it to childhood at all!

Unusual angle and like balance of tree branch - would like a little more of it included. Great sky and clouds, and content in mirror well positioned.
7, Kavey

Very nice. I love the angle, lighting and placement. I think I even see the "rule of thirds" here. My only complaint (and I'm sure if you could have done anything about it, you would have) is the tree branch on the right. I know it's not your fault. Other than that, excelent photo. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

Nice competition and color, though I fail to relate to the subject in relation to this challenge. 7 for technical composition.

You might consider cropping more off the right side. That little branch is bothersome. Cool idea and nice exposure.

Great photo! I don't have much of a critique for you because I love the image... however, maybe I can help you out anyway :) I bet you are getting comments about the tree branch on the right being distracting. If so, it's hogwash :) Don't believe it! I think the image would be a bit better without it, but It's not a 'distraction' for me at all... good work :) = 8 - jmsetzler

Good idea. The tree is somewhat distracting... i like that you put something there, but I wish it was something a little more interesting.

Good perspective, adds some interest to it. Would it have been possible to crop so that the limb wasn't showing? karmat

Interesting idea. I might like the composition more if the sky were cloudless and the tree in the far right were gone.

Interesting Photo... kind of appeals to my love of the abstract. The only thing is... don't use the name of the challenge in the title, no way, no part, no how!
