The image holds the viewer's attention for some time, Anthony, because there are so many overlapping and repeated reflections and it's not easy to make sense of it, but that is the attraction. I think I would title it "....and then three come at once." It is well seen and captured, but does have quite a bit of grain/noise, especially in the darker areas. I have a feeling it was a rainy day and that there wasn't a lot of light around. I'd like to have seen a bit more space at the bottom, so that the feet of the pedestrians were not so close to the bottom frame, and this would reduce the amount of space at the top, which would not be of any detriment to the image, which I think is mostly about the bus/es and the fragmented images within the glass. The vertical lines of the joins of the glass are nice and straight. I have done a modification where I cropped a touch from the right to eliminate the black strip bottom right, then brightened it, lifted the shadows and increased the highlights. I found that I had revealed even more noise by lifting the shadows, so I tried some noise removal, but it wasn't entirely successful.

Not sure why there is so much noise on the shot - ISO set at 250. It was a a very rainy day and quite dark at the time. Thanks for the comments. Ant
