Very clever. Reading your description I was afraid that the puddles and reflections were entirely added - I desperately want a picture like this to be a real observation not a fabrication. So opening V2 was a relief. What you have done is simply to enhance a damn fine composition, give it strength and depth. But the basic shot remains the great virtue - it has that wonderful mix of the static and the fleeting.

Thanks everyone. I was half expecting that it would get the thumbs down for being too dark.

reality and fairytail, mix well together in this image of sheer excellance. The old and the new, the harsh greys and the bright colourful fair contrast so well. a masterpiece.

Crikey there is a lot going on there and I really like it. How long did it take to do the refinements? I wouldn't know where to start.

I came back for a look at this, and saw your comment. I think that dark images can be extremely interesting - the eye likes to fill in little bits, and we don't need to see everything for a photo to pull us in. This is proof right here.
I have a very dark room that I keep wanting to upload - I like it, and it's very dark, but there's some intrigue and mystery about that to me.
Anyway, this one into my faves, for sure!

An excellent bit of work, Helen - the original has some nice lines and patterns, but this is greatly enhanced in V1 and gives it some punch - love it, and worth all the effort put into it.
