I'm with Glen, Alastair.

I like your original view better than your flipped one or the highly cropped
ones.  I think taking out the poles, like Glen did, strenghtens it.

I like the 3 painted stripes and the 3 sets of curbs coming in from the top,
getting bigger.  I like the line of the curb broken into 3 segments.

My only complaint--and this is strange coming from me--is I'd like to see
more in focus.  The out of focus leaves in the puddle distract me from the
reflected image.  I'm usually a fan of thin DOF.  But I think more would be
beneficial here.

Overall, I like.
