This picture was taken in front of the new Acropolis Museum.Really great place both for history/archeology(huge collection of the ancient findings) and modern architecture lovers(the building itself was worth the visit).

A very artistic way to take these reflections,i like your choice far from the usual symmetry and to leave a lot of space to the ground,very rich and bright composition very well exposed and contrasted.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

your imaginative composition is both eye catching and a little disorienting for me so early in the day with the upright figure taking up such a small proportion of the screen!
You have made fine use of the graphic lines to compose a most intriguing and enjoyable photograph.

bardzo udana fotografia i oryginalny pomysl na przedstawienie nie tylko przechodniow ale i takze otaczajace ich budynki. Woda na tym chodniku musiala byc naprawde idealnie gladka zeby umozliwic az tak dobre odbicie. Ladny kadr i swietna ostrosc.

une superbe photo N&B, avec des reflets de qualité, un bon graphisme et de bons contrastes.

Amazing crop and some psychedelic composition, very creative idea, good realisation. It reminds me "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There".

beautifully seen & captured, Krzysztof ~
and a perfect use of b&w.
nice that you were able to capture this person walking towards you, as so often we see the back or silhouette of people in similar types of shots.
yours, with its beautiful and fascinating geometry, is really excellent.

monochrome day today, so many B&W images and it is good to see this medium being represented more on TE. This is a real beauty of a composition. Full of intrigue, wonderful tones and a real arty atmosphere about it. It is a clever observation and beautifully creative presentation. Love it!
abmdsudi (57176) 2014-01-22 6:19
A nice vertical compo using the lower third of the frame filled with reflections on the shiny floor. You've managed the light very skillfully capturing both parts in the best possible way with excellent sense of depth but emphasising strength of this shot on lines, shapes and graphism. Good keen observation and nicely executed, Congrats.

Shining floor or wet pavement, Krzysztof - anyway the outcome is outstanding mirror effect.
Well done, fine clear view and you very well could shown this in colors, to my humble opinion.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-01-22 9:18
Hello Krzysztof - Magnificent monochromatic shot, the slick and shiny pavement has presented you with an opportunity which you have really embraced in this shot. The composition is excellent as it is made up almost entirely by reflections and stretches my mind as I unravel the image. I like the decision to go with B&W as it accentuates the graphic lines and tones of the photograph. Top class! Warm regards Seminary
PS. This would look good printed and framed
ourania (50573) 2014-01-22 10:34
an artistic picture of great beauty, elegance and mystery. The reflections make a very interesting composition that extends along the vertical frame. We are captivated in studying them and anticipate the movement of the mysterious figure along a ground that has enchanting silvery hues and looks fragile. The clarity you achieved is superb, the lighting and the monochrome create a fine, quiet and mysterious mood. Great work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

witaj krzychu. very well seen graphism enhanced with a good b&w range. looking up and looking down, we sometimes forget to look ahead of us, but no wonder there are marvels hidden everywhere. good idea to cut from the knee. i like it.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-01-22 12:30
quando ci fai delle proposte in bianco e nero il soggetto è sempre particolarmente interessante sia per composizione che per tecnica di ripresa e per efficacia nell'eleborazione.
Sono queste le qualità salienti della proposta di oggi per la quale non posso che farti i miei complimenti
Ciao e buona serata

Oh, this is slick Krzysztof...what a neat and pristine shot my friend! A tricky reflection, was the floor just waxed, or is at actually glass...this is about the smoothest, most crystal clear finish I've ever seen from a reflective surface. This would make a stunning print on metallic paper.
A terrific idea to compose this in a way that spells a hint of mystery, it takes a closer look to reveal the many hidden facets. Not sure how the color version would appear, but the monochrome scheme suits the graphism splendidly. High contrast, high style, and high marks for a well achieved result! A work of art befitting a museum setting, nicely done indeed. Enjoy the day ahead.
Cheers from Arid-zona,
willperrett (11760) 2014-01-23 3:13
This is a clever and intriguing photograph, apparently a mixture of reflection in glass and puddles, which creates interesting visual confusion. The monochrome treatment works well. Very good work.
delpeoples (59684) 2014-01-23 5:39
Witaj dear Krzysztof
Wow, this is a superb photo. I love the glassy reflections and the impressive way you have composed the shot. The vertical frame has been used to great effect here, accentuating the depth and the vertical lines we see in the FG. It looks like he's walking on water and you have cleverly composed it to show half the reality and the whole of the reflection. Good choice the B&W to. Great work.
Warmest wishes and thank you so much for your kind words to my mum, all of which have been read out loud to her in her hospital be.

Tout belle réalisation, intéressant détails des reflets, graphique avec un contraste tout bon du N/B, le format verticale qui inclus une partie du réelle, bien vu et réaliser
macjake (71729) 2014-01-23 17:27
I see you're taking photography cues from our dear friend Juan now! haha
this is certainly a photo thats in his style and format.
I like the horizontal lines, they break up the photo into sections very smartly.
enjoy your day

The composition is excellent as it is made up almost entirely by reflections and stretches my mind as I unravel the image.
Lovely presentation, with fantastic stairway in foreground.
Very well done, TFS.

I love this artistic crop, black and white treatment and top notch quality overall. The reflection's perfectly clear and the composition's just great.

You caught some very nice reflections, it's a very pleasant photo. Excellent and creative composition.

cześc znowu, Fajny pomysł z tym odbiciem, ciekawe te rózne paski i dobrze wybrane b&w. Interesujacy artystyczny rezultat.
Czy w Kolonii tez tak zimno?
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-01-25 1:55
wow! It is great. Love the reflection. Like the minimal composition. Very good use of monochrome. Nice one indeed with a lot of graphical appeal. Superb. Tfs.
Noel_Byrne (33422) 2014-01-25 8:45
Your eye spots the most unique captures, I have no doubt that I would not have spotted this fine result! Its created a very moody image, like the cover of an album. The reflection is so incredibly clear, and the strong vertical and horizontal lines give a great sense inside the water. Great spot and timing, nicely done!
adidas5nb (5743) 2014-01-25 10:17
this is a beauty again.love the perspective and the mood in b n w in the frame.nicely thought out.

Amazing b/w composition!!
tenretin (2657) 2014-01-29 13:47
A good idea always gives a good picture and reflections are conducive to it.
adramad (48960) 2014-01-30 8:52
Wonderful and creative composition, framing perfectly seen and performed brilliantly, I love the beautiful water reflections on the sidewalk, the figure of that person is a final touch ...
I think it was a wise move on B & W, with a lovely range of grays.
Well done. I really love it.
Have a good day.
P/D. Very grateful for your kind congratulations

A very well thought composition! I like the way you framed it, the reflection is perfect and the pavement gives a very nice effect also. Very good in b&w!
