I think its very good.
The POV and division of the image is engaging and the detail and color in the reflection is quite nice. Seems like a very clean reflection with little artifacts in the glass. Did you clean it up?
I think the effect can be made a bit more dramatic by some processing to bring up the brightness of the right side to better approximate the left, further engaging/confusing the viewer.

Thanks for the feedback. I didn't not clean up the glass. I was also surprise of the cleanness. I have tried to brighten the reflection but it also make a piece of wood inside the window obvious. I'll try do it again.

I'm kinda diggin' the reflection as is ... particularly how the clouds do not look as blown in some areas. Maybe a little lift to the shadows.

This is a rather unorthodox combination of formal lines and angles mixed with informal organic shapes. It also has an asymmetrical balance to it. I think the two work well together to keep the eye moving about the scene.

I have to agree, withdraw my previous suggestion.
I tried reprocessing to balance L and R. Hard to get the saturation and colors to match enough. The exposure part was easier.

Way to balance L & R would be to perhaps copy and flip image, paste flipped copy over original, mask & brush away the portion not needed. If you wanted to go to all that trouble.

thanks for the idea. i have never thought of there. it will be great for viewers to see but I would feel guilty having PP so much. hehe

i wld like to leave it as it is, with realism in mind. A reflection is a virtual image and should always be less pop than a real image.

i like how you translate the complex composition into words.
