Comment by PennyStreet:
Wonderful reflection! I'm liking how you choose to make IT the subject by cropping off the trees at the top. Really nice.

Comment by glad2badad:
I like this. Although I think I would have gone total abstract and cropped it just before the shoreline and only shown the reflection.

Comment by streetpigeon:
It's wonderful how the upper realism morphs into abstraction in its reflection. Many reflections have this quality, but this transformation is just right -- departing from faithfulness to the original yet not muddied beyond recognition. The colors are muted and lovely. Because of the proportion of upper to lower the subtle blues of the sky are gently introduced. This lower half of the image alone would do beautifully as a fabric.
Personal favorite of the challenge.

Comment by JakeKurdsjuk:
This would get a 5 from me because it forces me to ask the question "What are they trying to show me and why do they want me to see it?"

There are certainly some interesting elements here, particularly in the way the ripples interact with the reflection, and I get that this is what you're trying to capture. But there's no "And then what?" Others may have said this but this would work much better rotated 180 degrees, giving the "trees" an abstract, painterly quality. As is the lines of the trees lead your eye up to the dark and incomplete shoreline where I have to wonder if I'm missing something in the woods?

Otherwise be careful with the interplay of dark and light areas. The shoreline is too dark and high contrast. Let me see some of the details in the darker areas as textures add interest.

There was definitely something here you could have done something with. It just falls flat for me as is.

Comment by GeneralE:
Interesting contrast/transition between the near-abstract of the foreground reflection and the stark lines of the tree trunks at the top.

Comment by GolferDDS:
Not a bad image. I like the rippled reflection in the water. The light on the trees is a little distracting. I wonder if it would look better to have cropped that portion out.

Comment by MAK:
I think if you cropped the top bit out of the shot and left just the reflection, then turned the image upside down you would have a great chance of the blue ribbon, the gold & blue tones rippling together makes a much better image than a bunch of tree bottoms with no focal point.
