Reflection of the One Canada Square skyscraper in the glass of the other tall building that sits on the other side of the main square at Canary Wharf in London England. There is a strange optical illusion in this image, or is it just my crazy eyesight. All the vertical lines are straight, but I get the impression that this image is wider at the top than at the bottom. Does anybody else see it!

A splendid graphical composition. Perfectly framed with superb colours and clarity. You are right about the optical illusion unless my eyes are going as well:-) Have a pleasant Sunday afternoon.

Good POV, colors and sharpness.
I like it.

Just glass and steel, blue and green, this is a stunning composition indeed.
Difficult to judge what you are seing as I can't see the whole picture in one screen only and with scrolling I loose the impression. But of corse the perspective can give the impression that the image is wider at the top than at the bottom. Especially the individual windows seem to become more compressed from top to the bottom.
have a great sunday

Great graphical photo with fantastic reflections, you have chosen the framing very well to show us different surfaces, well done

this really has to be viewed full size to appreciate the superb composition and the effect of those glorious reflections.
The metallic tones are stunning.
All the best Les.

Yes, I'm sure we can all see it! You've "corrected" the verticals in P'shop or similar, from what was probably a slightly wide-angle shot. I guess our eyes are used to persective, where distant objects look smaller, and parallel lines going away from us will always reach a "vanishing point" where they seem to come together. But your "corrected" verticals are absolutely parallel, so despite going away (upwards) from us, will never find the vanishing point.
But to hell with it. It makes a strong graphic image. That's what counts for me.

Spectacular glass facade. I like the reflections this kind of buildings provide in the city. Well taken.

Yes, glass does work, particularly in this instance! It has made an incredible pattern of lines and tones, by way of its reflective properties.
The lack of any 'building' features makes the pattern even stronger.
My warm regards,

Très beau jeu de lumière et de reflets, très bon cadrage vertical et redressement impeccable....une réussite de plus!

Beautiful modern linear shot, a building in a building! This creates an almost abstract view with all these millions of windows stacked on top of each other, and the reflection inside adds a nice touch to that.
Cheers as always

Excellent graphical work, also pleasant architecture with the reflections of the other wall.
Your picture is very nice made with a high quality.
Very well of colours and nice presentation too.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice new week,

Awesome composition with interesting colours of reflexions

This one manages to stand out in your thumbnails page despite you have much more photos that catch the eye even in small size. The play of light and graphics is amazing. The POV and framing looks very well chosen.
TFS, regards, José.

Ahaha, you clown...I just read your comment to Serghei, and the quip about my pants. I'm built for comfort, not style. :-P
I wasn't ready to return home just yet, but it's good to back in the TE world. Glad you liked that new profile pic, I'll call it the Russian Effect. lol
Looks like you've been posting like a mad man, I have a lot to catch up on, and this one jumped out of your gallery tonight. Love the graphism of the full frame, being filled with sharp architectural lines and some cool reflections...and of course, plenty of blue color. :)
This is a bit of trickery on the eyes, the width perception does seem to play to a convergence from top to bottom....or maybe I really did dive into some Vodka to stifle my senses!? Snow White and the "horny" goats send their regards. hehe Take it easy mate.
Cheers from the sunny side,
