    It's reflected off the roof of a car...

    Hence the aerial and weird-looking lake

    Well, this is difficult!

    VItm: Excellent photograph!Great sense of movement and majestic looking sky.

    AlexH: Love this photo, the water looks silky, and the colours are fantastic!

    acearchie: This is the winner, I new as soon as I saw it. I like its industrialness and I love the slightly desaturated tone you have given it, the angles, curves and composition in general are excellent. Well done.

    joshuaginter: I like the clouds, really nice and fluffy. good contrast too. You get the start of the feeling of depth, but it looks a little to cropped. Not suggesting that you cropped it of course, but there is something about the composition that is making it feel a bit stifled.

    Sideonecincy: I think this is a little boring, Although I like the absolute impression of vastness it gives you.

    Kelco: Love the colours. The city scape looks somehow futuristic, MadMax or something. Again, I like the impression of vastness. I think that the bit of ground at the bottom left is a bit distracting. The opposing angle doesn’t help the shot I don’t think.

    JDDavis: Although I like it, and it’s shape, and the refections on it, I actually have no idea what it is, or what it’s about. I don’t know why it’s there or where it’s going or where it’s come from..

    Melizard: ‘The helicopter’ hey?! Nice! Really nice photo. Good textures and an excellent sense of mood.

    whodareswins: I find the aeroplane vapour trail a bit of a distraction. The angle of the helicopter isn't ideal. Would be better a bit more sidey on, or even better head on! Not that possible I imagine, but I just think the shot is a bit boring.

    firedept: I like this a lot. What a cloud!! If I shot it, I think I would be tempted with a black and white conversion. I would silhouette the trees in the foreground so that you couldn’t make out the cars or houses as I think It detracts. I would definitely up the contrast on the cloud as well. It pops now, but I think it could pop more!

    pmxperience: Nice clouds, lovely shapes and colours! Nice shot. From a plane?

    Eolian: I find it a little bit boring. It’s a nice shot, and I quite like the idea, but I just want the windmill to look like it’s moving!

    Droid13: As a small thumbnail.. this shot is amazing. Kind of a David Lynch feel to it. really nice colours and mystery. I don’t like it so much when you take it to more of a correct size, It doesn’t have the same feeling for some reason..

    masterdragon: This shot has grown on me massively. I love it. Love the colours, the composition. the clouds are amazing. Well done!

    Chappers: Cool photo here too. Another one with a great ‘mystery’ about it.

    milbournosphere: Lovely sunset. I can’t believe it took someone so long to put an obvious sunset in! I thought this thread would be full of them. I like it. nice sense of movement in the sea, whilst still looking tranquil also. Lovely colours, you have perfectly captured the mood.

    iTiki: You could pretty much read what I have written for milbournosphere above!! I love the depth in this also.

    mtbdudex: Nice star trail shot. Beautiful circle! A bit messy though maybe? lots of random splodges. I like it though.

    100Teraflops: Nice photo, Nice colours, maybe little boring? I would maybe have tried to have brought the colours out a bit more.

    CK Williams: Really amazing shot! What a find! Looks like a spaceship! Excellent!

    Ravaroo: Lovely mood, lovely colours really stunning photo.

    Bloody hard to judge! AMAZING photos this week! First and second I was sure about. 3rd was a much harder choice I chose CK Williams, but special note goes to MasterDragon and Ravaroo,

    Congrats acearchie - great iamge.

    cupcakes2000 - those "random splodges" are actually fireflies! They've been quite active past 7-9 days. On purpose I also left in the plane streaks.
    Lot's happening outside while most mortals are sleeping :)
