Reflected on that bike mirror is Toronto's Old City Hall. The pic was taken from across the street at Nathan Philips Sq. where the new City Hall is.
Post production: sharpening on reflection, curves for contrast, a little noise for texture.

Great shot Alex, very original and well executed. The reflection is just wonderfull and I like that it is about the only sharp thing in the shot. The use of B&W works for me here.
Really well done.

Very effective shot. What I really like about this photo is how everything around the reflection of the new City Hall is a lot darker. It almost creates more of a frame for it. Great angle too.

These kinds of shot amazes me. Why? You need to be psyched up to see things from a different eye inorder to compose a picture like this. This is fun to look at but I am sure it took quite a time to frame it. Good job.

Mas Filepe, ini bagus. I like this because u could see lines and form in that direction and in oppposite way too in one frame. Kinda of opticall illusion, back- forward. I wonder, if you could wait at precise weather or other light conditon, maybe the result will be much great, IMHO mas...

Very interesting shot. I especially like the little touches you gave it using photoshop. Nice work.
