The attractive Japanese garden & ornamental rock pool, in front of an expensive looking condominium resort, along the north shore of Victoria Harbor. I've dodged the shadows, & burned in the sky. I liked the Fall colors here, as well as the reflections.
Victoria is the State or provincial capital of British Columbia, & is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, facing Seattle, in the US.

A beautifull composition. Very well kept garden.
Reflection is superb. So are the lovely colours.
A diffused sky but does not effect the quality
of the image.
Have a nice weekend.

I like the visual approach and thoughtful artistic complex composition.... but it appears a bit 'hard' edged (strong unsharp masking?) for such delicate content as foliage and water...
I like that you are contrasting glass/steel to the still water and gardens, but I think the image may be a bit degraded in photoshop... another suggestion would be to let more of what is on the bottom of the pool show through (polarizer?) to create another layer to the image...

I was in Victoria last summer...how nice is to see this city now, with these lovely autumnal colors. You chose a POV I really like and those reflections add much to the pic.
Have a good day!

The reflections on the water of the pond are assets to the composition. The trees are framing well the pond. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. The luminosity is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

I really like this type of gardens in urban settings. They work very well and are a source of relaxation for all the people. It is a beautiful shot. Well done.

What a beautiful photograph!
I love its colors, its correct exposure and above all its magnificent composition, with all the elements so smartly, neatly and nicely placed in the image! The reflection is a highlight - I love all of them (the good ones) and I love this one!
TFS - congratulations!
Have a great week-end!

This is a well composed shot using the reflection to create depth and balance for the shot. The angle of the photo works well creating a diagonal through the shot.
The lighting and colors are great as is the photo's sharpness.
