In this shot, I cloned a little reed out and a few strange marks that are either from the camera's sensor or are a strange reflection. I also added the border and cropped like this.

I hope that you like it and all comments and critiscms are welcome.

Great pic, but unfortunately spoilt by the name right next to the reflection.

The crop works really well - makes it almost an abstract Smile

Thanks for the comments. Kopite_Kid, I was worried about copyrighting so I thought that I would bung my name next the reflection... sorry about that.

Great image with an unusual but perfectly acceptable crop and presentation for this subject.
Well done

A brilliantly timed shot - the reflection looks really odd! Beautiful colours, and I really like how you've presented it! Smile
