I quite like this Andres. But I think it would be even more effective upside down.

Nice and clear reflection…
I like it a lot like that but you should try John's suggestion.

I'm a contrarian. I like it better the first way.

Me too, the last version looks like a Photoshop composition.

I've got to buck the crowd. I like both versions a lot, but the second really gets to me. It's surreal.

Wonderful! I would like to know what everyone else thinks , I am planning to do a book with the photos.

The new version (reversed) is more "immediate", the brain can stay fully idle. On the original version, it may take a short moment to identify all the element and read the image.

The second has a greater wow factor for me.  I will try the upside down reflection tip in the future.

It looks great to me. Anyone who shoots these types of images knows they can be done without photoshop. You see these all the time in landscapes where trees, land and water meet. And in many urbanscapes where there is water or puddles. You are flipping for effect, not to deceive people. The very effect that caught your eye in the first place. That is, as Eric said, it is surreal. When I am downtown, I look for these all the time- or rather- such scenes grab my attention right away.

I agree. In the first image, my eye keeps bouncing between top and bottom, but the reversed image allows me to take it all in more immediately. IMO, this in no way detracts from it – it's a really good reflection image.

I'm with Rajan. To me the reversed version looks as if somebody dorked around in Photoshop to make a normal image look like a reflection.
