excellent shot..excellent colour!!!!

Original Orientation Not a single piece of cloud, and not a single day of rain during the trip, but only a puddle of water from sprinkler system. Here's the original orientation for reference. ^_^

Wim Ipenburg
I prefer this down-side-up version! Nice coloured picture!

Howard Dion
Upside down tricks again. You always get me with that one. Colors are interesting. Hope you made some exposures of the temple?

Detlef Klahm
the slight distortion of the reflection brings to mind a painting...colours are awesome...Very Good Job!

Marta Eva LLamera
Very nice. Well done. Best Wishes.

Angel Hernandez
Me, too. Wilson, next time you do one of your trips, give me a phone call. Excellent shot!!

Linda Keagle
Puddle perpectives again. I like your way of observing, Wilson. So unique...a little dizzy....always stunning.

Wilson Tsoi
Thank you all for your feedback, much appreciated. ^_^

Kim Slonaker
Definitely works better flipped. Good composition!

Stephen Forsyth
The first thing that came to mind when I saw this was, Las Vegas. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult, though. The vivid colours, lack of obvious context and abstract nature of the architecture makes it look 'clean' and fake, like a tacky Vegas hotel/casino. I do like the photo, by-the-way. I like the reality verses the fakeness, reminds me of shallow, Hollywood style attempts at Bhuddism( *cough* Matrix *cough*).

Very nice image , the reflection of the sky with the clouds looks very interesting , well done ..

Jayme Hall - Bardstown, KY
Purely amazing shot! Super vision!

Gabriella Lucia
Great idea executed nicely. Good to have your talents back.

Jos Van Poederooyen
Very cool view, I really like how the cobblestones worked for you...excellent title. The colors are great.

Tony Georgiadis
Very clear reflection.

Alec Ee
The reflection is awesome!

Wilson Tsoi
Thank you ladies and gents for your feedback. ^_^ Tuhin, those are not clouds BTW. It's the cobblestone texture at bottom of a shallow, puddle of water. Stephen, thanks for an interesting take, I think@#! Anyway, I thought I'd do something different from gazillion other people which typically would contain the large green lawn in the foreground.

Andrea Endisch
The master of puddles did it again! The stones mimicking clouds are very original! Regards, Andrea

CR: Orientation needed, that means a lot! Its the proof for an outstanding work. Especially I am touched by the native character I know from the behind-glass-painting. CL: It seems that the dry part is needed, at least for defining the kind of picture. Yet it doesnt fit the aesthetical impression in this case. Greetings, RE

Ken Beilman
Wilson Love that creative element you bring to your work. I too thought they were clouds and was really disoriented without the original.

Lou Ann Aepelbacher
Had NO idea that it was a reflection until I read the details and comments. Great work, as usual, Wilson!! I LOVE the colors, especially the gold in the temple!

Wilson Tsoi
Glad to clear it up for you, Lou Ann. ^_^
