Amazing reflection. Did you invert the shot? Love the unique idea here. Maybe bump the saturation a bit.

Very cool idea. Fits the challenge in a way I like. Using the water to get results better than most would achieve with advanced editing in Photoshop is outstanding. My favorite photo in this challenge. 9.

This is pretty neat, I like the contrast and the smoothness of the reflection. I also think the idea is a unique one and I like it... good job!

This could be a really fun picture if the ground was not the 'focused' part of the picture. Maybe next time you could get them to blur a little, and focus more on the reflection.

Exceptional reflection. The placement of the curving lead-in line starting in the bottom left corner is marvelous. Once you start there - there are numerous arcs that gently lead the eye up into the buildings and sky. It's a work of art, but perhaps a bit of a stretch for the challenge. It doesn't shout "OPPOSITE" but it does indeed whisper "opposite."

Sorry, looks brown to me. I like the idea but wonder how it would look right side up

A very clear reflection. the fact that this was taken when the buildings looked upside down give it a good frame and background with the cobble stones.

Great texture overlay from the reflection. Makes for a very interesting shot.

That is a great perspective!!!

I think this would work much better if it wasn't a reflection, the colors get lost and the bricks under the water are really distracting. The building looks interesting all on it's own. :) A 3

I look forward to entering an 180 degree rotated picture soon. Cropping away the pavement would make this even more intriguing. The bricks on the bottom of the reflecting pool superimpose a very interesting texture on the entire scene. and the ripples produce their own wonderful distortions especially on the darker building and the sky. I guess the question is not whether you want your magic explained or not, but rather does the pavement add beauty to the picture or not. For me, the answer is no. An 8.

A beautiful shot, however it doesn't really seem to be about black and white as much as it is about the reflections. (This is upside down, isn't it?)
