A little something for Valentine's day ;-)

Dedicated with love always to my beautiful Sara, who puts up with me when I drag her off to all these places with my camera, and makes everything worthwhile.

Well you hit the challenge right on - not only do you have the reflection of the trees, but you also have the reflection of the birds. I think that the dual reflections help bring out the theme of the challenge in the photo. The bird reflections alone might not have been enough - yes it would have met the challenge, but wouldn't have been as obvious to a lot of voters, I think.

Composition is very, very nice. The lines of the trees (and tree reflections) and the place where the birds are roughly follow the rule of thirds in a way that is very pleasing to my eye.

The one thing that I think throws me off, just a bit, is the color. I do love the orange, but I feel that the water is a bit too gray and for me, that clashes with the orange. Unfortunately, I don't have a good suggestion for you as to what I might like more.. and really, this is a relatively minor point when faced with the other strong points the image has.

love the reflections of the sun in the water. The birds reflect nicely also.
