Well I am not a mathematician but I am aware there is a mathematical formula for a diagonal matrix - I wonder if it was used in the construction of this "reflection sandwich" in the middle of the business district in Birmingham?!
Also, can you spot where the real building ends and the refelction begins?

nice the created reflections on the glass surface of the building with your mathematical thoughts to are the complementary event of the image.
I like the clarity of the shot as the vertical and horizontal lines crossing the building and making the image more effective.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

A great use of vertical and diagonal lines. The deep depth of field is excellent. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed on the building structures The excellent reflections also lends a lovely hue to the scene. Well done.

your composition is marvellous. You have created a very attractive image that occupies eyes and mind in a delightful way. Apart from the many diagonals and their captivating interaction, the reflections of the sky and the "liquid" ones of the neighbouring building are fascinating. I thought that the colours were quite dark but they create a dramatic atmosphere and effect that distinguish immediately this picture in the photo gallery. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

here we see the skill of the photographer to see and capture this incredible perspective and these beautiful reflections, very nice tones and light and a nice title...

Une superbe composition, bien joué avec les perspectives et les reflets.

The composition calls for praise of the phtographer's eye. Brilliant chequered lines and the 'diagonals' is heightened by the two predominant cloud colours on two surfaces, The intensity of the dark colours in straight lines are befitting to the geometric theme of the photograph.
There is also the reflection of a building opposite the focused corner - the brown building with crooked white lines... does that give away the point of reflection and reality ?
Thanks for sharing the interesting photograph.

You found a great viewpoint to give a great effect. The lighting was brighter than this appears I bet, but you have presented a dramatic shot, enhanced by the moody colour.
I am always intigued by Craig's ( Macjake ) architectural shots, but try as I might, I just dont see the angles as he and you seem to do.
I guess we all have our own vision. Opportunity always helps of course !
PS I see the join !

incredibili incroci di linee supportati da riflessi splendidi.
Gran bel colpo d'occhio, una bella idea ben realizzata.

It took me a moment, but I found the spot - the question does draw attention to the key strength of the shot, though, which is the continuity of reflection here. Normally the variant in light would be a tip off, but you've cleverly identified the spot where that won't work: where two buildings are visible in each other's reflections. Add to that a strong diagonal division and the picturesque cloudscape in the windows and you've got a great composition here.

clever use of the diagonals in this wonderful composition. Love the light and contrasting levels on each of the buildings. It makes an effective and captivating image. Superb imagery!
Enjoy your weekend - Brian.

Very nice picture once again. We have reflection on reflection here. Very nice composition. The presence of the light and the clouds help us defined the three buildings.

This image makes me think. I sit and stare and try to figure out where the felection ends and the glass begins, but the finish on the building makes it difficult to tell. A great design to catch the eye, and a really cool capture of it, thanks!

Very fine capture of the reflected image. Interesting modern architecture scene, well taken.

Great composition, great colour (I like dark images), and clever angle.
