great shot of geometrical forms. Due to excellent POV you created very pleasant composition of squares within squares. I like that slight touch of light making distant structures glow. Great abstract capture.

Lovely geometric photo. Good composition and selection of the diagonal lines. Also like the even lighting and the green-bronze color cast. Well done.

very nice composition and texture with soft colours on this photo. Is this a monument? Looks like the realization of Le Corbusier's urbanism for Paris :)
