You are using your eyes so well, to spot images that are unusual. This image says so much about our cold wet autumn with a dash of the autumnal colours.

Hi xiaoli,
You are certainly keeping your eyes open for a photo opportunity. I like the different textures. I know you can't do this now but when you have this opportunity 'on site' it might be worth running off a number of shots (battery permitting!) at different angles because here you are experimenting on an almost semi-abstract level with shapes and textures (between pavement, kerb, leaves, water and reflections) you might try the pavement running along the bottom of the frame or choosing the corner of a pavement in one corner of the frame making a more geometrical shape. Of course you might end up binning these in favour of the one here but you never know....Paul

This is a lovely idea, and the autumn leaves make it more special. I think that if you cropped off the bit of road at the top, it helps to make it more abstract, having no end, and then the tree reflections become stronger. Also, if you had no beginning and no end, no kerb and no road, it becomes even more interesting. I like that type of image, it takes my brain and eyes a while to understand it, but that's what's so fascinating.

I agree with Pamela's idea of losing the bit of road above the puddle. The shot doesn't need it really, and without it, it becomes more abstract.

My only other comment would be that it's not very sharp. It's hard to see where the point of focus was. But you can blame your battery going flat, I'll let you. Smile
