    It took me a while to discover the birds. Nice color and mood.

    Beautiful reflections. In my favourites.

    great back-lit-reflective capture I like the framing and use of the trees & gets in my tt...

    I like the shades of blue in the sky and the water. Very nice picture.

    I love the capturing of the reflection here. I'm a bit concerned that part of the trees disappeared in the sunlight, and the crop is a bit too close to the bird on the left.

Thought the sky is very pretty, I may have cropped this to a square format by removing the top of the photo just below the bright sunlight. Just a thought. Good Luck in the voting!

    Beautiful shot, I can't take my eyes off it. Goes to show you, Rule of 1/3 can (and should) be broken at times.

    You choice of metering is perfect for this image. Very well executed. Too bad about the ducks. I'd rather have them more in the frame or out. But they don't follow direction well now do they! :0)

    Great atmosphere; I find the ducks(?) on the left a little distracting

    The starkness of the season is beautifully captured here.

    Really like the composition, and the fact that you have taken the shot into the sun, but IMO the geese take away from the balance in the photo, and could have been cloned out.

    Very nice reflective scene, maybe a little central and by cropping the left side to remove the water birds would enhance it to my taste. High in my favorites, well done.

    Wonder what b&w would be like. The birds either need more space or need to be cloned. Lovely use of light,and that is what photography is about.

    Finely executed!

    Great reflection - but the goose almost cut off on the left bothers me, just a bit more room on that side would be nice - if there was space on the original to expand to the left and crop a bit of the right it would have had less of a right-in-the-middle feel.

Jan 11, 2013
    Impressive use of light and reflection - I like it!

Jan 11, 2013
    The birds are a bit of a distraction but the overall picture of calm. the blues work well in the picture. well done

    Very beautiful photograph. I like the disturbance in the water at the point of sun's reflection, giving an indication of life to an otherwise still shot. In my top favs.
