    This just missed my top ten. I like the sense of balance and overall colors. But the texture of the background and its reflection on the water was distracting to me.

    Nice picture. Symmetrical balance works well here. In my TT

    I'm fascinated at how the reflections and shadows make this look as if the stones are sitting in oil. I agree you have the symmetry in the reflections but more important for me is the asymmetrical placement of the tower of stones which is nicely balanced by the lower rocks on each side. The play on words works well for the them too :-)

    Perfect balance, compositional and otherwise. Like the color, too. Nice work!

    Attractive and right on theme. I might have tried to darken the water more and eliminate the blurred reflections (maintaining the more clear ones).

    I'm guessing this is setup, if so you put a lot of effort in. Really nice reflections, the background looks like paper?

    This is a beautiful example of symmetrical balance. It is extremely well done and gives a sense of serenity. Perfect for the theme.

    Very nice. And I like the pun introduced with balancing rocks. Balance is good and you managed to keep the symmetrical balancing elements interesting.I am interested to know more about your location. The background looks a little strange, almost textured like paper, it even has kinks that look like paper. But I guess this could also be a wall...

    this entry shows a nice balance between the reflections, the light and dark stones, & the different shades of blues of water & background. Well done.
