Looking Up
Actually looking down, but reflecting up. This is from the Sequoia National Forest in California, during the wet season that lasts almost all year!

Extremely clever and well composed.  I like the one little drop of water at the top to give it more interest in addition to the monotone as I bet best applied in this situation.  

Hey Patrick, another beautiful and nicely spotted reflection. The only thing for me is the the right side of the picture - its slightly softer and a bit on a dark side compared to the left. Just wondered if that can be fixed in PS. Best regards

I like the black & white treatment. It is a shame it isn't sharper. I see hints of camera shake, and the depth of field is too shallow.

Thanks all! Amongst these comments I most appreciate the critique to reconsider the right side.

Too many trees there caused the noted darkness, and I guess it is pretty soft too. I can do better - but I'll have to return to this location!

 Very well seen and what is actually lacking is contrast it is to grey..

The movement of the water from a drop ( circles ) adds to this
