This is a unique crystal that inverts the world and gives you an upside down view.
This is the first time I tried it and I hope you like it. :sun:

The reflection of the clouds in the crystal is spectacular. At first I even thought this was a photomanipulation and you put a tiny Earth into the crystal to give it that effect. What a pleasant surprise! I also love how the blue goes from lighter to darker towards the bottom inside the crystal. The colors all blend so well together.

The depth of field is also great. It works so well and makes this image so beautiful. The only thing I would suggest would be to have a little more sharpness in this image. I feel that would've set everything off even more. Overall, this is simply stunning, and I can see why it has so many favorites.
What do you think?

Seing it as this photo has been resubmitted I figured I had an excuse for a critique.

The photo in itself speaks for itself, it looks great and I will get back to that...

What strikes me first as a great improvement from the previously wider landscape format is how this cropping has resulted in moving the main feature sligthly off center. Ok so it's pretty obvious that this crystal is the main feature, regardless of it being centered or offset. But putting it offset with the cropping you have succeded in making it the natural focal point for any viewer, not just some feature put in the middle.
So composition wise I give you two thumbs up...

As for the rest of the photo I hardly feel I can say anything that isn't obvious.
It is a great photo, light, colours, contrast and so on looks really good. Truly the perfect moment for a photo, especially with the inverted view created by the crystal.

The only thing I might go as far as "complaining" about would be the focus and sharpness inside the crystal. It's not a perfectly clear inverted look of what is behind it or what you were looking at... but like everything else in nature, nothing is truly perfect. Clovers can have four leaves, nothing is perfectly square and a crystal will always have inperfections... Not much I can say, guess I can only take a deep bow to a well consieved photo.

Just an honest opinion.

Hello - I am creating a custom set of Magic: The Gathering cards for some friends, that I would eventually like to make available online. I have used this art on a card. Can you please let me know if I should credit it differently than "wonenownlee", or if you would prefer I not use it?

Thanks
