Before leaving on my trip to New York City, i received a request or two from Juan (JFS). He wanted me to come back with some sky scraper photos, along with some glass reflections...well, this one's for you Juan!
I was actually surprised how difficult it was to come up with these reflection shots in the main city, perhaps i wasn't looking hard enough? In this one, i was walking around Times Square, and the sun was shining brightly, reflecting the Reese's and Hershey's Chocolate store onto a glass building.
Thanks for looking, hope everyone had a great weekend.

A very enigmatic composition featuring these distorted reflections. Excellent graphism complemented by good colours and sharpness. Very well seen.

Maybe hard to find, but once you found it you managed to cram a maximum amount of colors, shapes and letters into one glass wall. An eye-catcher, to say the least.

Wow, Craig, Hard to find I think not for this one, which slaps us in the face, absolutely amazing, fantastic reflections of all shapes, sizes and colours, Love it, Well done, Tfs, Cheers Iain.

As Gert says, you might have had some dificulty finding this but, once found, you have certainly made a superb job of producing a wonderful image from all those reflections. Fabulous arrays of colour here and perfect exposure and detail.

Hello Craig, great reflectons and so very colorful as well. Reflections are a bit of a novelty in photography and most of the time they are the mirror of something in the water of a river or lake etc. However, with the glass and bright metals used today, you can capture a lovely and bright scene here which is just a reflection. great job. Regards, Roger

Hi craig. For all types of reflections at TE could be set up own heading. And indeed, the reflections in an artistic way are more beautiful than the reality. Your photo is a good example. Absolutely well done! Rgds, Wolfgang.

The reflection is particularly clear. The graphics of the facade adds to the beauty of colors. An excellent idea and a quality realization. Bravo.
Have a nice day

wonderful composition. The reflections are fantastic, there is so much color and it seems so busy, what I really like.
The OLIVE seems to be a part where the reflection is touching the reality.
Very well done,

Lucky Juan, he'll love this! And for us chocaholics you've also got a present with the Hershey reflections. Lovely colours, beautiful lights and a wonderful composition overall. Thanks for sharing and thanks for your kind words about my nan.

a gorgeous game of reflections in this capture, with a fantastic graphism, in which only the neon "Olive" in the glass front is a true image.
Probably it is the neon sign of the restaurant "Olive Garden" in Times Square, where I have eaten several times.
The composition is very creative, has a great visual power, a good light and a few beautiful colors.
A great work, my friend.

I missed this one, a real explosion of color, very sixties, crazy visual effect...your eye never takes a break and sees everything, every reflection.
Hasta luego amigo!

Les yeux s'y perde un peu dans ces réflexions très colorées et pleins de détails, belle réalisation

Wonderful mix of pastel colors, a reflection that is well lit with attractive cityscape elements, Craig.
Found a great perspective, taken good advantage of the available light.
My best regards,
