Just a shot of the Reunion Tower in Dallas from my recent visit. It was with work and I did not get much of a chance to go and sightsee, but I liked the architecture of this which is by the Hyatt Hotel where I stayed (There were some great reflections as well)

finally i get to your image :) :-D see I like it! :P

there are beautiful geometric shapes captured amid your buildings windows, as well as in the intricate detail of steel around the tower; its amazing how many triangles you captured here; squares, as well as circles :) beautifully composed; and while part of me (the part that loves close crops and tight-views) wants to see only from above one tower and part of the other- I see that I would loose a lot of amazing details and am at war with my want to see this cropped closer... and leaving it as it is :) :-D I like the splash of green, it breaks up all of the blue; as well as gives a feeling of humans overtaking nature ;) i see a lot of artistic things going on in this image; including the feeling of 'stairs' amid the shapes :) its lovely- and well done :) --the title also suits the challenge very well! :) :-D nicely done!! :)

Jon, I love the way this picture is so full of symmetry and contrast. The glass buildings look great but then the are a perfect contrast to the sphere. Then there is all of that blue with just the touch of green in the lower left corner. I like this a lot.

I like how you used the perspective to enhance the strong lines of the rectangular buildings. It's almost like they are leaning in to get a closer look at the sphere.

Beautiful blues and geometric shapes, especially the lines reflecting in the mirrored building....it mimics the triangles of the Reunion Sphere! Cool capture!

It looks like an interesting place. Good blues and sky. The green tree is distracting, but an otherwise nice cityscape image.

Buildings on the right suffer from the "tipping over" look from ground-based perspective, not deducting for it because I don't think you can straighten those in PP even under advanced rules, overall a nice image

I find that the top of the tree is clashing with the rest of the image. I would have preferred if everything was blue.

beautifully composed. good job putting the sphere at top-left thirds. blues in the shot are gorgeous. also the cubes(straight lines) of the building works very well with the sphere.

The building looks familiar. I'm sure that I've seen it in a challenge before.
