greetings from the critique club:

this is a great image that really stands out from the pack. my only comment here is about the coloring: the image seems overly gray in general, and i wonder if there's anything that can be done to punch it up a bit? some dodging and burning of the clouds would make the scene that much more dramatic while still preserving the serenity that the reflection provides. i'd also be very curious to see this in a strong black and white with a lot of contrastiness™

This doesn't fit with my idea of 'Zen', the image is a little flat and I am not sure where the focul point is (MHO)

The title may be "Frozen in Time", but to me, it is also 'frozen into my memory' as this reflection is just magical.....

Creative use of selective desat. Not sure if I like the end result yet or not, but still pretty cool (no pun intended). Good luck in the challenge.
