I would love to have seen the reflections play a more prominent role in your photo. Reflections do exist here but they are not creating the 'wow' in this image...

Fantastic composition, great lighting and overall, it's a wonderful shot… I think you've got this spot on. Now, this is going to sound a little pedantic, but I think the shot is perhaps a little too good… What? Yeah, ok, it's not easy to explain, but the shot is composed for the frog, not the reflection, and therefore the eye will not see reflections without searching for them. I spotted the frog, took in the image, smiled and then thought this is great, but there isn't a reflection anywhere. Then looked again; no reflection… Then again, ahh, the penny dropped… I've got to mark the shot down because of this. But be assured, if the challenge had been nature, it would have got the max… ( 7 ) Great shot, keep shooting…

This is a neat shot - I think the main subject is the frog, and his reflections on the water. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be very photogenic water. It's quite busy, which makes it hard to find the subject (even with the title) and it's reflection. It does meet the challenge, but I feel that it could have been executed better... - 5 - JB

Meets the challenge but not a very strong reflection. I love outdoors and nature so this adds to the appeal for me. Good luck in the challenge. Grayce aka Gracious
