    Like the comp, and contrast. This might be better in B&W.

    The double election is inspired. The HD is just right for this photo. Well done.

    This is an amazing shot and I love how you got a double reflection in the water reflecting the silver ball. nice composition and color scheme too.

    Bold and stark and quite suitable for the subject. Well done.

    Striking image - nobody said you couldn't have mirrored reflection s if you have others as well. Though the composition is good as is, I find the building at left somewhat distracting; the right side of the picture is more interesting.

    Lots of "wow" factor here. Good leading lines to the reflecting ball. I like the contrasty filter effect. Very striking image.

    A reflection of a reflection. Very clever.

    The high def filter has caused an unusual and interesting effect. Nicely composed to draw the eye into the sphere, with its double reflecting in the water.

    my choice of words in extra info has caused a problem
a better info is
stainless steel cooling pads covering a planetarium reflects itself in the water moat.

    To me this image is quite harsh and resembles an artists impression of a proposed building and since the challenge says " no mirrors"..........!

    Wonderful double reflection on the theme. I wonder if a bit of cropping on the left would help. Also what about a black and white rendition? In my high favs.

    I'm in a quandary as to where to place this image. I really like the composition. There are plenty of very nice reflections, and the effective leading line leads your eye straight to the focal point, a "mirrored" planetarium. The result is an extremely dynamic image, that does a fantastic job of meeting the challenge requirements.

Therein lies the problem, however. Mirrors are expressly forbidden in the rules of this challenge. However, I'm going to give the benefit of doubt here, as the planetarium's surface actually appears it could be be highly polished steel, and not mirrors, per se. Using "mirrored" to describe the planetarium was a poor choice of words, however. With some trepidation, this is my favorite image in this section of the challenge.

    Every time I reviewed the entries this one moved higher up the TT. It's almost as if the sphere has power over my voting. Nice sharp lines, and a starkness that's toned down well by the blue sky, good luck.
