Thanks for sharing. IMO, the shot is missing something. It's too plain/boring. Perhaps a shot from a lower angle or a wider show showing more perspective with building edges, etc. Or...some idiot sticking his head (or other anatomy part) out one of the windows.

This shot would work great for several challenges including patterns, "blue", reflections. It certainly qualifies for the glass challenge but, as Walter said, It needs something to add a point of interest. It doesn't have to be much. A passing airplane or bird reflected might make all the difference in the world.

The almost abstract pattern is attractive but it is almost impossible to tell it is a glass since there no real point of rererence to hint that these are glass windows.

I agree with the others. Great idea, it just needs a focal point.
