    Nice work. My only crit is that I'd crop up from the bottom to the reflection.

    What really stands out to me is the unusual composition of the silhouet. The sky looks great and I really like this picture. The only thing I would try is a crop on the left side as there is nothing interesting on that side. The picture may have improved if you could have gotton the whole tree in the reflection.

    Oh I like all the other pictures you have been posting also, I just to lazy to comment on them all.

    Thanks for the comments Cruzin, I will try your suggestion and crop the left hand side, I tried to get the whole tree in the reflection, but the puddle of rainwater was too narrow.

    I agree with the duck. The left side doesn't bother me as much as the bottom portion in shadow.

    Well I for one like the cropped picture much more, the picture seems more dynamic. I'd say this is a wall hanger.

    personally i like the first picture better, but the reflection just doesn't seem to fit right IMO... so i scrolled up a little and hid the bottom 1/2 of the picture off screen and i liked it a lot better.

    I agree the image is immediatly more pleasing to the eye when cropped that way, but I find the image more interesting with the trees reflected in the water, makes the picture a more unique silhouet.
