This is a 1949 Bauhaus design house which is going to be demolished after a long battle between the historic preservation commision and the owners. It has been empty and neglected in the meantime. This room has ceiling to floor windows and I an standing outside looking in. The foliage is reflecting in the window. I made an duplicate layer, ran gothic glow action on that layer and set the opacity to 20%.

Oh! I love this... how clever and neat. The colors, the light... Superb work, and great eye.

Interesting use of reflection but not a compelling subject. - 5

Nice idea that fits the challenge topic well. Color is generally OK.

Compositionally it lacks a central focal point. This composition would be improved tremendously if you could have had an actual 'fairy' model reflected as well. That would give the viewer a focal point and support your theme much better.

Other than the reflection this is a very ordinary view. It will not work well for some reviewers and they will give it a low score.

I am not sure i understand your idea/concept. I don't get either a fairy or a ballroom from the shot.

Nice capture of the reflection in the window, but this photo isn't very exciting.
