shot at the neighbourhood park, better known as Shore Park.
Pretty straight forward. Not much work in the digital darkroom other than a crop, quick unsharp mask to bring out the details in the glass, resized & then changed from 16 bit to 8 bit.

A good try but I don't care for it. I think part of the reason is that the colors are kinda blah. Nothing really there to catch your eye once, much less two or three times. I also might have liked it better with the glass not on the ground...maybe on a stone wall or something with some interest. It would have been nice to capture more of that tree in the glass as well.

I think this picture would have looked better without the glass, I feel somehow that it just doesnt fit in there, no matter though its fun to see it upside down, I like the house there and tree gives a lot of mood, good luck :)

Color could have been a little more saturated, but otherwise, this is great. -8

I don't know that the water glass is bringing anything to the party. The gazebo and the leafless trees may offer an interesting composition without the glass. Just a thought...

on an overcast day, might use b&w to show the shadows etc. because the muted colors leave this photo a bit dull.

Maybe crop a bit from the bottom, otherwise, it's great!

A really interesting way of adding interest but let down a little by the weather - the sky is just too overcast to provide either the warmer lighting that would bring this alive or the interesting backdrop the would provide more colour.

Cool idea, should do pretty highly. Great focus and title. Original idea, well executed.
