This is the surface of a boat pond, turned 180 degrees to give the illusion of an impressionistic painting. Looking at it upside down easily reveals the true view I was shooting.

I hope this one does well, but I imagine this challenge will be very unpredictable in terms of judging.

I may have cropped the bottom a bit more, but a very good shot.

I give you a 7 for avoiding photoshop filters.

Reflection. I find the colours a little drab.

Lose the clear part of the boat with a reflection and I would have gone higher in voting. Bringing you up a bit anyhow.

would have really had WOW if you could have cropped out the "real" part of the image...

Certainly the best I have seen so far in this challenge. Striking without being gauche and your non use of PS filters helps a lot. 9.

Nice use of reflection, but I find the boat mast right down the middle to be distracting from and not adding to the photo.
