I feel this image would be better in the 'brick' contest, the lock is too small to be of significance here.

Agree with Kyricom and Friiskiwi in regard to showing the reflection in this photo. How about shooting in HDR to make the refection more pronounce? Or making the red colour a little bit more darker? Anyway, well done

I like those reflections... the style of architecture kind of fits the shot... Lots nicer than the usual reflection of a photographer

Interresting picture.
It's not your fault but I imagine that with a more cloudy sky it would have been more powerful.

Great capture, you can see the translucence of the wings, with the leaves showing through. I've never seen a butterfly with a sexy, lacy, set of wings before. Very interesting!

What a fascinating looking creature! Between the eye patterns and the "legs," it seems to have an edge on not getting eaten by birds. Beautiful focus, the details are nice and clear!

Nice composition and colours. Lighting I think could have been better, though if this is a public place, you probably couldn't control that.

You changed something? Did you try auto color? I had the same issue with my entry but the auto color reversed it. My entry looked more purple than blue but auto color corrected it.

You might want to up the saturation levels. It looks more gray than blue.
