    Many thanks for the votes and comments. I'm really pleased to finish this well.

Billy, I think you and Alby are right about the increasing the colour - It was something I thought about, and then got side-tracked, so it never happened.

    The classic "old vs. new" subject/ feeling, beautifully captured here, nice chosing for the theme. I would have been tempted to raise a bit the blue tones, but don't trust me, I'm a fanatic of blues :-D
TT for me, well done!!

P.S. Lo? Michael? again, almost impossible to guess :-D I'll bet Lo here, but as I said in the other Ottawa pic, I suspect I have both of you in my TT :-)

    Great reflective shot. It compels one to be drawn in and beyond the grid pattern.

    Thanks Mepo - I take it as a great compliment that Jade thought it was yours.

    I love everything about this shot especially how the reflected building is turned into something from a fairy tale.

    Thanks Old Finn - It was the warped effect of the reflection that drew me to this photo as well.

    The irregular reflection makes an interesting effect.
Nice composition. One of my favorites.

    Thanks Forkcandles- It would be such a shame not to look out on a beautiful old building like this - but I guess after a while people would tire even of this.

Jade - I'm really pleased that you liked this shot - It's high praise coming from someone who takes such beautiful building shots him(her?)self.

    I'm guessing Mepo but whoever, this makes my No. 1 pick for its excellent colour, clarity, interest and perspective. There are a lot of mirror reflection shots in this Challenge but this one stands well above the rest.

    An excellant use of the modern glass buildings. The large size of them reflects the old buildings in all their finery. I wonder how many of the occupants actually look out of their glass box. in my top ten
