This has a very dreamy, watercolour feel. It reminds me of Narcissis gazing at his reflection.

Outstanding shot. Wouldnt have guessed its inverted, I like the ways its slightly soft, makes its more dream-like. Got to be top ten, I'm routing for you!

My favorite so far, this is just incredible. i love the look and almost storybook feeling of this. The title is perfect. It almost doesnt look like a negative, just a black and white.

This is great. The title is perfect and i really get the feeling that the bird is looking at himself with much emotion. Only criticism is it is really soft but I'm guessing you made this decision for a reason.

Cool shot. Love the softness, reflection and b&w traetment. I dont think it would have been as good with color in it. Bumping up.

This doesn't look like a negative. I think it's going to hurt you in the voting. The picture itself is fine.
