I really do love this one Brian, especially the wonderful reflections, and awesome patterns.....
Surprised it didn't get a higher score, as I gave you an 8.....

This is truley a unique shot that you had to see the final outcome of before you snap the photo. I commend you on being able to do that. What a great b/w conversion as well. This is excellent.

I love this shot. I like the way you have taken an ordinary reflection and turned it into a beautifully rendered piece of art.

How funky looking.

A lovely and clever image, the viewpoint is good, without the distortion from looking up. Great detail in each reflection, well done :)

Often these distortion shots come over as cheesy but you've done an amazing job with this. I adore the black and white conversion you've done and the high contrast, tones, framing and distortion really make for an appealing image.
