I like this. It has an interesting collection of lines, shapes, repeating patterns and reflections.

The camera has done a decent job of the exposure, getting the main interest right, with the small amount of sky burnt out.

Overall, it will benefit with a few tweaks, - most important for me is contrast and sharpening. Another option for the building lean and the white area upper left is to leave the lean, and replace the white area with a sky colour as in the mod. This is a sample colour taken from one of the windows.

Loaded a mod to show what I mean.



Regards


Willie

I like it, too, Averil. The curved lines of the windows is a nice feature, and the distortions are fascinating. I also think the square blocks on the modern building are a strong element and juxtaposition with the reflected older buildings.
I have done a modification where I cropped mainly to remove the part building on the right, concentrating on the reflections, then used perspective correction on the reflected buildings, adjusted levels and sharpened.

Well seen and executed. A tiny left crop to remove the sky, then add some brightness and a touch of sharpening.
