I love a good reflection, and the one created here is fascinating. The panes of glass have really created an eye catching jumble of architectural features, a perfect building to choose a reflection of. Its colors are cool too.

like this, gloriously distorted and a fascinating mixture of shapes, line and colours. A close crop of the middle part of this image would be great too! Excellent!
Have a good week - Brian.

Love this Will, when each pane shows a different view of the buildings nearby and move just a foot either way and you get a completely different set of distortions. Isn't it wonderful the way glass plays with reflections, patterns and distortions and reflections in this are particularly clear and colourfully crisp. Looking at this reminds me of those children's puzzles where you slide little squares around inside a frame to try to get them all in the right place and this looks as though you've deliberately muddled them all up, It is wonderful and funky shot, Well spotted in the first instance, Smashing!!

Reflections at its best!
Really eye catching.

wow ~ looks like gaudi, for a moment i thought this was a shot from barcelona ;)
what a sumptuous mangling of architectural lines, it almost reminds of of how ice cream colors swirl together as they're melting ~ good enough to eat :)
great capture, will ~

This looks like a grotesque caricature of a building but the colours are indeed very good. A very attractive picture and a good observation of you.

wow, what an abstract frame you got in this reflections. Love the lines and curves in the glass and the nicely saturated colours. Like your tight composition a lot. A nice imaginative pair of eyes you have. Hats off. Thanks for sharing it.

Superb shot full of interesting elements and architectural motives. Perfectly seen and executed scene with a very well taken sharpness. TFS.

un riflesso magnifico, il disegno creato dagli specchi è fantastico, aiutato dai bei colori e dalla bella luce.
Un bel colpo d'occhio.

a pool of mercury, this is. that you wanna jump in, but will regret doing so. nice puzzle of architectural reflections with a slight pinkish haze in it.

Very Daliesque! Well spotted, I admire your creativity. The colours and light are very nice and I like the geometry of the glass panels (did you have to correct perspective in pp?).
tyro (26142) 2013-09-10 4:56
A delightful shot which appears to me almost like a composite of multiple small paintings by Salvador Dali!
A beautifully abstract shot in which, if we wish, we can still appreciate the details of the reflected buildings but otherwise we can just simply revel in the glorious colours and varied shapes, lines and curves and wiggles.
Lovely light, fine vibrant colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and clarity.

I have seen this photo in the Kasia's Favourites Group - I must say - it's amazing shot. I like it very much.
Have a nice day

Hello Will, very surreal looking with the way the reflection in the glass twists and turns the strong image. The grid from the glass adds a uniqueness to the image as well, like cubism. I am wondering if you used the stretching tool in photoshop to achieve this?
Glint (6171) 2013-09-10 13:27
fab reflection. Better than an abstract artwork, no that's wrong -it IS a work of abstract art. This building as a reflection has its own personality. Love all the wavy, wiggly distortions. Great colours too.
dekanski (5900) 2013-09-11 11:20
Great, just great!

Ciao Will, fascinating reflection with fantastic deformation, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Architectur and reflection are often coming together. Here, the mosaic is giving a nice piece of graphism, in more than the pleasant warm lightning.

I'm not a lover of reflexes but this is really awesome, I like distortion, light and warm colors, and the effect puzzle...great job...
have a good day...

Nice reflection shot, it looks like a kaleidoscope. Great light and sharpness.
PaulVDV (31161) 2015-09-03 10:21
At first impression I thought this picture was taken somewhere in Mediterranean Europe because of the warm tones of the facade in combination with the blue sky.
Very pretty distorted reflections.
Best regards, Paul
