Really nice composition!
I'm with Howard - the leaf is detracting from the composition. Without it, you have a very interesting reflection - like a painting again.
7/7 Very pictural. Love it!
If only the leaf was a bit sharper. However it has to stay. Great shot.
excellent reflection and nice colour!!!!
7:7 Beautiful colors on the reflection!!! Very well done, Regards...
could be a painting! it is so beautiful!
Wilson,I like the upside down reflections, I do think that the leaf is a distructing, and is a competition to the rest of image. Pnina
7/7 Supb. reflection
An exellent duble work!!! Magnificant colors and composition!
5/6 I wasn't sure how to rate this one. The leaf means a O6, and I was thinking about a A6, but in the end settled on 5. Why? First of all, I think a tad more space between the reflection and leaf, not so its crammed in the corner, but still, just some breathing space between them. The second problem is more interesting, prehaps trival to some, but I think its been touched on in the forums- the problems with putting titles on photos and forcing a point of view on the viewer. The title, IMHO, would make more sense if the leaf was sharp. With the blur, it becomes unreal, and therefore merges with the unreality of the reflection, working against the idea that the title suggests. Without the title, I could merge reality and unreality. Again, maybe very trival, feel free to call me an idiot... here's the forum link if you haven't seen it already... http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=0086bY

Wilson The diagonal contrast of color and shape created between the water and the deep blue of the sky and the colorful buildings is wonderful. The light on the building with the red door is super. I particularly like the reflection of the leaf stem, I find this intriguing along with the tiny bit of white of a cloud in the upper right. There's no question the leaf must stay, but I also agree I think I want the leaf to be tack sharp to accentuate the contrasts of the wavyness (is that a word? LOL) of the reflected buildings and water. Such beautiful color!
Wilson great shot...but the leaf has to go. The scale is wrong. Detracts from the beauty of the image.
Good. Very good. Really wonderful Wilson.
Just a fantastic composition loaded with an abundance of rich color.
Aesthetic 7!!! Beautiful reflection. Congrats.
7 & 7 CONGRATULATIONS & REGARDS
Reflective Period You seem to be in a reflective period at the moment Wilson. This is TT.
Beautiful! Feel like a poem ,the colour combinations works great!Congarts!
By all means the leave has to stay! That's exactly the spirit of the image, another excellent reflection from your portfolio.
How did I miss this one? Awesome color and painterly texture. I agree that the leaf doesn't need to be there but that's certainly a matter of taste. Great work, Wils.
With or without.... Great shot with the leaf - shows real and reflection, would be nice without - looks like a painting - but I really like it with the leaf in.
Nice composition Wilson. The leaf sharpness can be an issue but I find this image great! Congrats!
Thank you all for your valuable opinions. Really appreciate it. I think I owe a few of you a version without the leaf. ^_^
Good googd goooooood!! Very nice shoot and colors!!
I am also for leaving the leaf out but I don't remember to have ever seen nicer reflections! The real-unreal contrast would have been great idea should the leaf be in focus and much smaller. Very difficult to rate. I will rather wait for a next version.
Great vision and composition

Yes Wilson, if you could show us a version without the leaf, that would be super. The photo doesn't need the leaf and I feel the leaf is too much. I imagine that without the leaf the photo would be absolutely stunning. :)

Hi Wilson! I don't mind the leaf ... it makes this particular image unique. (And, the red in the windows is a neat accent, too!) Having said that, though, I prefer the other image that has a similar reflection. I just like the size, colors, & orientation of the buildings in the other better.
A well balanced picture with saturated colors Wilson eye catching.
That's great. Stunning colours and beautiful reflections. The leaf add a lot. Congrats.
This is, again, Troi-ism at its best. 7/7.
Aestetical.Maybe oversaturated a bit.7/6
7/7 Wilson, how can you get more friends? Making more pictures like this! It's amazing what you captured!
Ladies and gents... ...thank you everyone for your feedback and input. To leaf or not to leaf, that's the question. ^_^
Nice capture, Beautiful presentation, Excellent title!!!
