La Pyramide du Louvre (Louvre Pyramid).
Commissioned by the President of France François Mitterrand in 1984, it was designed by the architect I. M. Pei.
The structure, which was constructed entirely with glass segments, reaches a height of 20.6 metres (about 70 feet); its square base has sides of 35 metres (115 ft). It consists of 603 rhombus-shaped and 70 triangular glass segments.

I like the approach and how you framed the persons in between the triangular shapes of the structure and behind the scratched glass.
I like the dynamics created by the structure and all those diagonals.
Where I think you colud have gone better is on the lower part of it as being empty and overexposed it leaves us with plenty of unoccupied space with no apparent relevance for the overall.
Maybe you had another thing in mind and can oppose to what I'm saying.... However and again I must applaude you audacy going for the creativity and different approachs, which unfortunately seems to be not valued as it should around here.

Yin&Yang, yes. Though, my first impression was something like "tiny Alice trapped in a spider web". A photo full of dirty pixels. Smashing the TE pumpkins...

Hello Frederic. Modern world. Glass, stone, steel. And somewhere in between a human form. I think this is a subtle photo. Well presented in a classic black and white. Rgds wolfgang.
