Effective cropping and flip technique.

I really like the reflections in the water but find myself distracted by the colorful items at the bottom. I wonder how this would have been in B & W or with the bottom cropped. DPz

the fact that it's upside down kind of threw me off for a second..

funny that you chose to send the pic in upside-down. i'd like to see a little more of the original trees, kindof a compare//contrast thing with the reflections. that's just me though.

I'd have cropped the bottom a bit, because in my eyes, the what-ever doesn't fit to the rest of the picture - the pic is blue dominated with the trees... and then the colors (esp. yellow and orange) don't fit at all... it's distracting somehow (What is it???)
However, at all a nice shot, I like the double blue of water plus sky! 6 KAOS

I would have cropped the busy shoreline off the bottom and just the water filling the entire picture. The buildings and whatever the orange & yellow things are just detract from an otherwise beautiful picture.

Idea has been done many times before. Picture is not very attractive, is very dark.

Nice reflection! I would like to see more on the topside of this image.

It might be more striking with less of the black at the top. It is very striking.

I immediately liked this but when I got to the bottom of the picture the peaceful feeling of the trees and water and sky was shattered...lol There doesn't seem to be enough detail on the bottom to really add virtue to the image, so I think it would have been better without it. Nice anyway. Good luck in the challenge! Grayce aka Gracious

I am not sure the bottom part is bringing something. It 'explains' the picture but I think it would be stronger without it. Lionel

Wild. I love it. Took me a while to figure it out, it was a great idea.
