Vienna, former 'Kaiser-Koenig Stat', beautiful, perfectly maintained, showy,... yet, life in it is not much different as in many other large cities. Beautiful facades and buildings, troubles of large industrial city, aristocratic, fashionable people and less aristocratic and fashionable hard workers, many of them foreigners, all this reflected in this shop window 'under construction'.
Cropped, curves to adjust overall tonality, some manual dogging and burning with lightness and contrast brush tool. Unsharp mask level 70, 1 pix diameter. JPEG level 38 (Corel PhotoPaint notation).

Well observed Amadej. I am not sure about that vertical mullion that divides the shopfront. Have you considered cropping that part of the picture? Perhaps not, that part has got some of the best reflections in it.

Great work ... I really like the reflection in the shop-window ... The only thing that actually is not good in the reflexion is the Red & Yellow logo ... But I definitely like this shot.

Previous critiquer mentions red and yellow logo. After studying the image for some minutes I was distracted by the car reflection and never noticed Mickey D's golden arches! I wonder if a polarizer lens could have been used to eliminate the car but keep the old-style building reflections across the way. I guess we'll never know!
