I always think this sort of shot works well, from dark to light as it draws you towards the light, hence a lead into the shot, well done I like this and the style nice shot, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

A variation on a familiar theme. How strange - there seem to be three totally different worlds, parked next to each other.
Have you considered skewing the top corners outwards a bit? For me it would add to the formality of the composition, create a natural triptych.

Well observed. Commercial benefit seekers often destroy the balance between function and elegance of architectural structures. This seems to be the case here, Jeff. It happens everywhere in the world.

thanks, Nezih...even this `lounge' area was an addition to the original, but they clearly hungered for the commerciality of more bar/restaurant space, rather than maintain the elegance Sad

I love this image - looking through lit windows is always interesting and the colours a great.
I wonder if perhaps you could have straightened it up though. I think it would have more impact.

thanks..I did try straightening but it seemed to upset some of the other lines..I think it is actually horizontal with the far shore of the lake, but admit it doesn't quite look right.. I might try some barrel distortion Smile

The contrast of light and dark makes an excellent picture. Don
