    Beautiful reflection and I like the subtle drama of the weir edge.

    Beautiful, historic building. Double value with the reflection. High in my favourites.

    Well composed, technically perfect and beautiful and historically interesting. Well done.

    I think the perfect reflection works well and adds a sense of tranquility to the scene. Well composed too.

    Your composition here is really striking, with the rich colours being reflected even more deeply in the pond. I'm glad you included the foreground and the bulk of the rock - it provides a nice balance to the mill.

    Suits to the topic. Beautiful scenery. Maybe I would have cropped a bit off the left side and the bottom. Anyway, my first choice.

    Beautiful reflection and color. Personally, I'd like to see the building walls that are toward the camera just slightly more in shadow to heighten contrast with the other faces. Very nice, nonetheless.

    the image itself as it stands is fine
using an image viewer I reduced the gamma and got a darker blue in the water and building
using greyscale i ended up with high key/ low alternatives
finally used sepia and levels chnaged to increase "aged or fade"

so this is ok but a bit darker I think

    Nice sharp image. I find that I am drawn to the shadow area to the right and would have been tempted to employ a tighter crop since it is pulling me away from the main subject. But taken altogether a very pleasing shot and one of my favourites

    I love the reflection, the clarify of the house and the deep blue sky makes the water look beautiful.
