This is wonderful, the pedals even compliment the castle colors - you couldn't have set up a more picturesque shot.

This has got the be one of the best shots in this challenge. The colours really enhance this photo. Great angle. The clarity is amazing. Full marks for sure.

I think its a reflection. If it is, its stunning. If it isn't you really have me fooled. Very unusual and surreal. Nice work 8

Incredible shot! The point of view the subject the angle the color, all perfect choices. I like the highlights in the lily pads. Beautiful work!!!

I like this. The dramatic angle works well, and the lillies in the pond add an extra interesting element.

What a great reflection! Clear and vivid . Colors are great and welll composed, even with the small black triangular shape in the lower left. Love the effect with the flower petals in the water...very surreal. Well done.

Very nice reflexion. Sharp and colorful. Good work. -8

Interesting. The lilly pads are a little too busy for the background to identify the foreground.

This is quite a picture. Like the angle and the color. Flipped reflection, very nice.

reflection? multiple exposure? love the title. The colors really are dreamy!

It's nice to see that there aren't ripples in the water after the earthquake there a couple weeks ago :) That is quite a castle -- I visited it back in '88.

Very pretty shot, and interesting to look at. Is this a reflection? And are the lilypads actually that color?? Very nice. 10.
