Reflections, they often produce a peculiar impact, they change the way world dimensions, they attract you into a world that rapidly changes with every step you make. When beautiful nature and exquisite architecture come together in one reflection…
I took this shot a couple of days ago at the Clean Pond (Чистый пруд [CHIS-tiy prood]). This part of Moscow (Basmanny District) is a photographer’s heaven with a lot of houses dating back to decades and centuries.
* Through the Looking-Glass, flipped reflection of a bridge in Tsaritsyno Park, Moscow;
* Through the Past a view through windows in a ruined village house;
* Tatar National Hat, another reflection of architecture and nature merging in a window;
* Where Sun Sleeps

You did a great job capturing these reflections. They are so sharp and clear. As you wrote in your note, it is nice to have a combination of architecture and nature, and you divided them perfectly in this photo. The distortions are interesting, and we can still enjoy the architectural details.

Классно! Гауди был бы доволен ))) Отличный ракурс, коллега.

Very well observed: the combination of nature and beautiful architecture in one picture, in this case
in one reflection.
The difference of what is reflected, is nicely emphasized by a difference in colours.
While the reflected trees look more or less 'normal', the facade underwent a lot of distortions in its
reflected image. I really love these distorted shapes.
The architectural details alone are already worth a picture.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ilgiz - I like the clear divide between the "natural" and "man-made" in these crisp and clean reflections; they make an interesting juxtaposition. The primary colours of yellows and blues also add another layer of attractive contrast. Excellent and interesting shot. best regards Rosemary

The best of your distortion/reflection series, if you ask me. Great contrast between nature/architecture, with equal distortion on both. A terrific effect, very visual and very challenging. Nice work!

Очень хорошо продумана городской структурой, вы сделали, чтобы найти в этом файле часть природы, архитектуры и технологии.

Very creative! Love the lines, squares as well as the dysmorphic reflections on the window! Superb clarity and sharpness! Great composition!
All the best,

this one we can really call a well-selected and well composed capture.. like this style of reflections really a lot! seems to show a building in a bit better conditions than the one, you showed us several days before!
thanks for sharing, and thanks for your kind advice to my comment on Jerzy´s picture yesterday.. was really appreciated..
see you around, cheers Bernd

A spectacular and very effective photograph. You've composed it masterfully. I like a lot the graphic result here. The two part window acts as a marvellous frame for a great visual effect and interesting shapes. Strange how the building gets distorted differently than the tree according to the window. A really good picture.

construction astucieuse d'image basée sur un jeu intéressant de reflets d'une grande netteté,
les lumières parfaites permettent de voir tous des détails de ce qui est reflété.

merhaba Ilghız Moskova görüntülerin İstanbul İstiklal caddesi gibi.
mauro61 (52623) 2011-10-13 10:41
interessante la scena proposta con le vetrate divise tra il riflesso degli alberi e quello dell'architettura.
Buona la definizione e la luce,

Hi Ilgiz .......
A very interesting picture,
playing with the perfect frame of the window ...
two ambients, two images and distorted reflections
of the crystals.
Good job, good idea.

Almost a painting of the Dutch painter Anton Pick.
Splendid reflection in windows, with the movement of the buildings
I find your picture gives perfect volume at the photograph.
Composition and angle are very well taken, excellent done.
Have a nice weekend,

A beautiful reflection you have captured here. I like how it split by the lines of the wwindows giving differente view and deformation.
danos (87451) 2011-10-21 7:33
nice the view of the reflections on the window with the two different elements,the tree on the right and the building on the left.I like the light and the colour management of the scene as the architectural style of the building we can see through the reflections.
Have a good afternoon,Danos
