Nicely portrayed, you could try opening a bit more in the top-left corner. Thanks for sharing.

Magical world out there Arati ! May be loosing a few pixels at the top would further add in my view...

very unusual and unique one of the reflection series..the placement of the brown leaves and white wisps on the top of the frame..give it another character altogether.. intriguing.

Beautiful frame here Arati.. Love the contrasting colors at the edges of the frame.

Thank you, Vikram, Ganesh, Neelu, Radha.
Vikram: By top-left corner did you mean the part with the leaves and seeds? was a bit confused. I have not adjusted anything in this image, it is completely as shot. cropped, of course, but nothing else - but it would be interesting to play with that, thanks.

Ganesh: Thank you, will experiment with that ... some day i want to sit with you and hear from you how you think about images and why you feel some changes will add, etc ...

Neelu, Radha: Thanks, glad you liked it. you gals were with me, when i shot this :) here's to many more shared experiences!

Very nice surreal feel to this.

Hi Arati - I meant opening up and bringing more detail, just an experiment to see what the image will look like.

Thanks Sacha and Vikram.

Ganesh, Vikram, Radha: Worked on some of the pointers you gave... here is what i came up with:

What do you think?
Thanks for your wonderful comments, as always.

Oh that's really nice shankar... There is something very fetching to me in the reality of reflection, these days. Both in image and in philosophy :-) thanks for sharing such an excellent image, glad you liked this one.
