Damn Brit

I think there's potential here, but I think you were too close. I think the reflections need to be part of the composition, not the whole of the composition. The subjects and their reflections just take up to much of the frame, it's hard to take them in.
The best one is the second one, because it's actually a picture. The bushes create a window to look through and one can take in the subject and reflection with one glance. You also get a sense of the surroundings.

To each his own I like them all but think the last one is the best. Great colors lines and the way the refelction is broken up by the lily pads (or what ever it is) works for me. Oddly the telephone poles at first where something I thought I wish not there but the more I look they more they draw me into the middle of the shots from outside in. could be I had to much coffee nice work.

I do understand what Gary was saying on these images but I still love the last image. The colors and lighting work well. Cheers JIM
