    Straighten out the first picture, and you've got a definite winner. The other two are compositionally, and technically good - but the first is the better of the three.

    I really like #1 as well- what kind of PP did you do? It looks to me that the reflection is brighter than the actual view....what's up with that?? Were you using a CPOL? I'm trying to think about how that would happen without some sort of filter on the top part...

    A CPL would have removed a lot of the reflections. More than likely the photos are for the most part SOOC.

    Even SOOC the reflected light shouldn't be brighter, right?

    The first one is upside down. When you turn it right side up it is still awesome.

    Ahh yes. good call. I coudln't see it until I flipped it back. I thought the black items in top center were things hanging from a porch you were shooting from or something... But it looks like they items driven into the water. Creative... I like it a lot!

    Also solves the question in my head with how the reflection was brighter :sexywink:
