    Obviously I thought it was an extraordinary capture of a commonly shot subject. I agree with ysal. Placed well in a challenging field but I still feel it should be hirer. I put this in the photo fine art category. Obviously not everyone saw it that way.

    WOW, this was my #1!!! I thought the lines were mesmerizing and beautiful! I really think it should have finished MUCH higher.

    I like it, but the reflections are a bit too intense for me.

    Love everything about this shot! But I can't look at it too long without getting dizzy ;-)

    i have more favorites than i know what to do with. love the patterns and they would fair well on their own. not sure where this will wind up but i just wanted you to know i like it.

    Impeccably taken, with incredible detail, and just enough colour in the duck to make it stand out from the patterning on the water

    Eye catching reflections for sure; looks like liquid silver to me. Good composition as well. Kudos.

    I am up and down with this trying to decide if it is an ordinary shot which looks special or if you've taken a special opportunity to and make it ordinary. Currently my number 4 pick.

    maybe clone the duck and use just the water >>>?

    Beautifully done. I could look at this for hours. A great photograph.

    Love the squiggly lines -- the most interesting part of the photo. I think a vertical crop would be more effective based on the direction of the squiggles. It would be interesting to see this as a high contrast black and white to emphasize the graphic qualities.
