A popular subject locally is the reflections in the exterior mirrored glass of the Eldon Square shopping mall. Here the building reflected is my favourite in all Newcastle, Emerson Chambers, with the cupola of monument Mall far left, recorded by the faithful Lumix on January 3rd this year. I have tweaked the image a bit by straightening and adding a slight filtration, Frosted Glass, which seemed appropriate for the weather.

55mm equivalent, 1/160th sec. @ f4, ISO 80.

Good reflection Bill. Like how it is seen through the ''bars'', to give it a strong linear quality.And yes,the frosted glass does seem appropriate.
Good one.
Mick.

That frosted effect is ideal for this weather, works very well with that great reflection. Rather a grand looking building, a pity they don't build them like that these days, though I would think the costs now would be massive.

I really like the effect of this.
The frosted look makes you stop & look deeply at the image which is when you see lots of little things that would be lost with just a fleeting glance.

Hi Bill this really is a fine building! And what a reflection!!! I'm impressed with your treatment of it, but I would like to see it without the frosted effect as well. You can't beat a good reflection!
V2 possibly?

V2 is the one we see and take most in the Northeast so V1 is a refreshing change for me and i like the post processing.

Sorry Bill; it seems like it's going against your original intention for the shot but v2 for me and the glass itself seems to add its own bit of wobble. But great reflections and what a grand old building; I love the round towers coming out from the corners
