I really should have gone back to the car for the tripod. I nearly scrapped this because it's not sharp. As I didn't shoot anything else today this must suffice.

I don't know if I'll be able to post over the next couple of days but I'll try.

I wish you all a very happy Christmas.

Nice colors. Glad you didn't scrap it.

Great color in the reflections.

The wet pavement with its wide range of colors and relflections makes for a nice flow from left to right. Nice photo.

That's the Marlowes, isn't it? I thought I recognised it. I didn't realise Hemel Hempstead could look that pretty. Have a great Christmas!

Glad you didn't throw this away. I love the composition. Have a great holiday!

I like the movement and play with the perspective. your eyes follow a pattern of dry pastel color through a "sea" of saturation. nice image.

I don't see anything wrong with this picture at all! I love the flow of the picture, and the way the colors bounce off the wet pavement. You are so good!

I like the way the "balls" are intersecting the merging line between the gold and the blue. Very nice composition.

I really didn't notice the lack of sharpness until I opened this window. Now, knowing it's there, I realize that the slight blur of the foreground pulled my eyes in, to the second ball. I think it works really well, and the reflections are great.
