Excellent take on a old cliche; brings a fresh view. The original orientation is very nice, too. Added to favs.

Thank you to everyone who voted and left a comment. I'm extremely surprised to receive a ribbon for this, I thought it would finish somewhere in the middle of the pack. To date this is my highest score even though I think other pictures I've taken are better. But what do I know? Clearly not as much as you lot.

I am so happy the voters gave this photo the recognition and honor or a ribbon. It was in fact most definitely one of the top 3 most ribbonworthy photos in the challenge. Congratulations on the ribbon -- and on capturing such an enchanting, delightful scene.

This is a lovely scene no matter which way you look at it.

Here's a link to a photo of the place from 1896.

Good inverted mirror reflection image, and like the other I saw it looks like stars, but I guess it's something in the water. Very good composition. The reflection above looks like a painting. I'll give it a 7 but with more brightness I would have scored higher.
Edit: corrected start to stars for clarity

Awesome reflection!! The water must've been smooth as glass. I wish the car weren't there, but that's minor.

Interesting, though one could expect to see a lot of these in this challenge so you better bring your "A" game - as they say.

I find myself wishing there was less lost at the top of the image as my eyes are drawn to it so much. The image seems just a tad off balance horizontally & overall is a little flat - though I s'pose such would be the nature of photographing a reflection. I like the splash of color on the left.

10! 10! 10! I love this shot. I love how the reflection is 75% of the photo. I love the symmetry and the colors. I love how it is upside-down!

Awesome. This will be a ribbon winner.

Ooh, how calm that water must have been. Great capture. If it wasn't for the purple bush I might have gone on thining it was right side up!

Excellent take... I had the same shot in mind but could not take it as the water was extremely dirty... Real nice and high marks from me...
