Wonderful! I agree with Jens about looking like a painting. In fact, I would go a step further and describe as Impressionistic. I kinda see this as a close-up detail from a large canvas print.
I wouldn’t know the bottom was a reflection, but it doesn’t matter because I’m really enjoying the combo effect with the ICM. Very cool.
Personal preference of course, but to me, I would consider cropping down from the top to eliminnate the blues in the UR and UL corners. Cropping to eliminate the blues in the UR, will still leave traces of blue thru the trees in the UL, but no biggie. I just think they draw the eye to the corners when we should spend the time exploring the painterly effects.
Mario, your image has a wonderful impressionistic quality. I would not have guessed the bottom was a reflection. I love the Autumn colors and the strong vertical lines from the trees. I too would suggest cropping off the bits of sky up top. Excellent ICM image!
A really great ICM with an impressionisitic feel. The color are very good, but one idea could be to have the tree trunks a tad whiter? I agree with others to crop out the sky (or maybe even better to clone out the sky since the top of the trees are rather beautiful). Or maybe make the sky dark to match the darkness of the reflections at the bottom of the image? Here is a quick and dirty example.
