12 Minutes to go...gotta rush

post challenge: While the frame is not filled with glass, the photo would not be the same without it... So I gues TECHNICALLY, glass is not the subject in as much as glass make the photo what it is... a colorful set of objects and their reflections... I appreciate the comments and the thought put into them. You will note, the winners of this challenge do not have glass as the subject, but as a vessel for the display of light and color (just like me). Their photos are technically better, so I know they deserve to win. But I feel this one meets the challenge.

Ooooh, to be honest I don´t really think this meets the challenge, even though you have glass in the shot, I don´t really feel the shot is about that. In short, I feel you took a shot and made it fit the challenge, not the other way around. However, I just deducted one point for that and thought I should let you know.

Shot is pretty nice, would have given it a 6 in a free study so this got a 5 from me this time.

Horizon is a little crooked. Although there is glass in this photo, it doesn't seem to be the main subject.

I understand the buildings have glass, but I think this shot is taken too far away for the glass to be the subject. This would have made a good shot for the Framing challenge though.

Hard to tell if the buildings are glass, but I'll assume they have windows, and the reflections give the water a sort of glass-type impression; not an overly strong tie to the challenge, but it's there. Nicely framed with the vegetation.

Guess i'm missing the glass here. is the water supposed to be the glass because of its reflective qualities? i'm lost. its a very nice photo though. so for that 7

I think this was a stretch to fit into the challenge. Not a lot of glass in the photo, at least not easily seen glass (I know it's in those buildings but it's surrounded by concrete and steel and not prominent enough).
As for the photo itself, nice job on framing the scene with the trees, I like the reflection in the water.

Beautiful framing ! Wonderful photo with perfecting lighting, reflection and composition. Even the slight hint of the moon in the cloud area...all add up to SUPERB !

The focus (IMO) isn't on glass in this image.
