Reflection of a neoclasic building on an ultra modern glass tower just oposite of it in Athens centre! Both of them belongs to banks.
Tip: Wwalking in gig cities main streets is useful to look upwards as it is very possible to find interesting reflections :-)!
Photo fliped horizontaly in PS to let the bank name be readable...

Very nice abstract George and a nice contrast between modern and old. The distorted reflections are great and the colours are vivid and nice. Well seen and captured!

Interesting result. Quite contrasting buildings on opposite sides of the street. You seem to having some nice December weather over there.

The contrast is great and of course the sharpness, nice to see all the shapes in the separate windows, nice seen, George !

Hi George, nice reflection that in addition to the distortion is crystal clear, guys washing windows of the modern building did a good job !
Nice weather too to help you get beautiful colors and above all a very nice contrast between old and modern styles.

Great reflection George.
I like the sharpness and the fact that the reflection creates a kind of puzzle with the window tiles.

A definição e as cores são tão boas que nem parece uma reflexão. Muito interessante o estilo do predio, as letras e o lindo ceu.

Πολλή όμορφη ιδέα για μια ωραία καθαρή φωτογραφία! Ο φωτισμός πολύ καλός (ο ήλιος βοήθησε αρκετά) και αυτό το σπάσιμο που κάνουν στην αντανάκλαση τα παράθυρα πολύ ωραίο!

Clever idea to rotate horizontically to make the writing readable, George. What the shot makes really interesting: Every window, every pattern got now an individual, distorted form.

J'aime bien cette rencontre de l'ancien et du moderne. L'ancien se mire dans le modernisme, et semble déstabilisé de se voir ainsi déformé.
Idée très originale et parfaitement réalisée.
Très bien vu.
Very well done.

Well seen detail of this reflection, George, and as always you're showing an impeccable way of handling the technicals and the presentation. The subtle distortions given by the window placements give a delightful quality to the view, and I join Richard in envying you for this weather and the nice colors ;-) (in my next posting, you are going to see why ...). Well done!

Great colors and architecture.
I Like it

Καλή χρήση του αντανακλαστικού γυαλιού για να συλλάβει αυτήν την slightlty διαστρεβλωμένη εικόνα. Συμπαθώ τη θερμή/κρύα αντίθεση μεταξύ κίτρινος & μπλε. Καλή εργασία, & μια καλή απόφαση να αντιστραφεί η εικόνα!

crystal clear reflection...rgds

Great contrasting colours, lovely graphical look and thus - composed by using a splendid mirroring effect, George! The letters add a fine touch of Greek atmosphere. Wonderful capture!
Rockyboy (20598) 2004-12-13 16:48
The problem is that I cannot read the greek writing... but anyway, very nice colors you have there. TE, is the only solution for me to see a blue sky as at the moment, the weather is always grey here.
Nice composition and well seen, George!

Nice work George - I like the frame, effect and artistic touch made by the reflections. (A touch of Salvador Dali) Thanks for sharing - I like it.

Ciao George, merci pour ta réflection, regarde j'en ai fait une prèsque dans les mêmes condition. Amicalement/jr

Very good work, George! Looking at the thumbnail, I didn't understand if the reflections were on the water or on something else...
They are fantastic, and your note helps us to understand it; also a very useful tip! :-)

Vivid colours and a very clear reflection. I am wondering what are the shadows in the sky: lights inside the glass building showing thru the windows ?
I like the strange distortions appearing on the windows edges.
