This shot stands above so many shots of this nature. First, the strong straight diagonals against the round pillars is such a feast of line and form. Then the reflection in the muck simultaneously continues the line and solidity of the pillars while inverting the pattern the blinds created.

That alone is enough to create a great image, but you go one further by capturing the scene in the golden hour, really capturing the essence and beauty of the light as it must have been while viewed live. This is something we all struggle to do: capture the quality of the light and not just it's brightness.

Then we have the clean form and color of the stone pillars contrasted against the mucky gritty puddle on the floor.

You have outdone yourself here. Truly, could this image be any better?
10, and favs.

This is an extraordinary shot! I'm wondering if it's an art exhibit, or simply a well-found piece of happenstance. Good eye! [10]

The play of light and shapes makes this a really interesting piece. I like the bright spots in the water.
