Walking past this puddle on the road. A photo had to be taken of this portal into another universe.

I think it is the damp cobbles that make it work; A dry road and dull light wouldn't add up to much but I like this one just fine.

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

Very nice.

I wonder how many people walked by it/in it and never even noticed it?

Great shot.

Lovely photo.  Everything works so well.  I agree, the wet cobbles make the difference  :)

What about a bit of vertical and flipping? Done a little perspective correction and grid alignment, with some selective reduction in saturation?
