Nice capture, interesting composition and I really like the space left for the cyclist, I might have cropped a little more on the right though as I don't think is a bit of dead space, in one respect it adds balance to the cyclist but in another it kind of makes it too symetrical and looks a bit awkward.

One of my favorites of the challenge. The 'lifeness' of it all really talks to me here.

The wall of names representing death, the old folks in mourning or respect and the youth speeding by obliviously. It's a perfect scene to represent life and its phases. I hope this does well for you.

I expected quite a few water reflections, rotated 180 degrees. This is my favourite, I think it works really well.

One of my favorites thus far. Composition is outstanding and black and white treatment is very effective.

I had an idea very similar to this, I like the use of b&w.

securely an image captured in some meorial. great the effect of the "names" on the photo. a natural texture that add a surreal effect to the image. great the composition and the reflection, perfect the black and white. the white line on the middle is a great choice for the separation of the real world from the reflected world. I am sure that you have rotated the image but here isn't a problem. 10

Beautiful reflection. There were many color reflection images in this challenge and your B&W version created something really different.
This is so different from a normal scenery composition. I could see a story within this image. I like the feel of dynamic from the child riding the bicycle, and a static feel from the couple. The only nit is the contrast on the water which I think could be better through post process, but then I understand that you are much limited by the Basic Editing restrictions. So I'll give you a "9". Well done!

You didn't have to flip this picture to make it efffective. I think it would be better right side up.
