On the top floor of 100 Residence Tower in Bahrain, sits a small pool with outstanding views.

The pool looked like glass as it was so still!

The B&W looks even better, thank you for your input. I did think maybe it was a little dark for the colors to show through.

Like your composition and the good reflection, to me it need to be to have the horizontals tweaked to bring them level and a small crop in from the top to the top of the window frame to give it a natural stop, would improve this.

I think it needs a bit of squaring up all round, and I would rather see details in the room than the building work going on outside.

This might be really interesting if you could take the same picture as it got dark, so the outside wouldn't intrude so much, and the lights of the city would be prettier than the bare buildings. It would also have the bonus that the overall light levels would be low allowing better balance between inside and outside.

I like the B&W mod as there is little colour in the original.

Very nice shot, can easily see it in a modern homes magazine.

Lots of good advice above re pincushion distortion, and the idea of reversing the inside/outside brightness sounds interesting.

Ive loaded 2 mods, and taken some of these ideas into account, in particular the brightness reversal. I love the mono mod, and Ive also offered an Aqua duo toned version which I personally like.



Hope this is helpful,


Regards

Only thing missing is someone sitting on the bench looking out the window

I like the evening one much more. Just uploaded a mod to straighten the distortion caused by angling the camera downwards and added a little more saturation. I think there is more interest in the room and the evening sky adds a neutral backdrop.
