Default Windows.

How would you have shot this? I thought about showing more of the building, but decided not to, I would like to have waited until someone was visible, but had no time. Your thoughts.

I like it! Kinda makes my eyes cross to look at it, but it's cool!

This is how I'd crop that shot to emphasize the pattern. If your intention was to photograph the building and not the pattern then my crop is worse than yours because mine is too abstract.

Argh! Windows 35!

But seriously, the pattern and angle is interesting, with enough detail to hold my interest.

I like, that's a great repetitive pattern shot. Well spotted I'd say, and your idea of having someone looking out or sticking their head out a window is fab ....... I'd be going back and watching and waiting.

I like the shot as is but it would also be cool if just one person (hey you said it first) somewhere in the middle of the frame was looking out. I always enjoy abstract photography but don't do it myself, just can't seem to get it to work for me.
Comments always welcome.

I like it. Did you try different angles? Like getting closer to the building and looking up a a steeper angle. Don't know if any angle would be any better but that is all I would try just to see how it looks. Having one person looking out would have been cool too. Very nice!
