From the same office block as "Reflected". I feel this has more impact but it could just be a matter of taste. Comments always appreciated.

much more impact for sure!

the opposing angles really draw the eye, as does the tight crop...

any chance there is a bit more brick to show?

Nice emphatic composition. Is there a way you could have straightened the perspective and cloned out those red bricks. Seem detracting for me. Regards. jaki.

I really like the reflections in this but I think you either need to get rid of the bricks completely or show more of them. Right now they are just distracting.

I'll echo Ladyhawk's thoughts on this one. Nice contrast of colours there too.

I am inclined to agree with the ~ more bricks or no bricks. Trouble is (as can be seen from the wider crop below), although the right hand side to the window in question is plum, the left side is at an angle which makes it difficult to frame perfectly.

Thanks for all the input and feedback.

Regards,

Syd
