It's amazing how many comments were about an upside down composition. I was curious to see if this would create interest. The comments I received expressed just that, whether the person who made the comment knew it or not. I wonder if I would have received as many comments on a more conservative composition. How many would have asked me if this was a right side up picture? So if you liked the picture, me too. If you spent more time looking at this picture figuring out what you were actually looking at, I achieved what I wanted despite the obvious.

Well turning a picture upside down doesnt make it art. But great colours.

Obvious 180° rotate. Cunning idea. Stopped motion nicely. 6.

Interesting picture. Lovely colors and clarity. It puzzles me why you chose to turn this over like that.

Not sure if it is or not, but it appears to be upside down.

is this picture supposed to be upside down?

Nice timing. I don't think that the rotation and angle do anything, and think that right-side up and level would be better.

Is this upside down .. there is something really confusing about this shot.

Different. I'd have been a whole lot more generous if this was the right way up. Actually a very nice shot.

Great shot and good perspective.
