It seems a little hyper-saturated, which may have caused some graininess. Otherwise a very nice, interesting shot!

I love warped reflections like this. There are a few bright spots that are a bit distracting, however the overall composition is well done and the exposure seems right. 7

I've got my eye on a few buildings like this!...
Fantastic distortion...I know some will say 'it's a building' and mark you down but not everyone can be as aesthetically well-endowed as us, can they? Top ranker

Nice photo, one of my favorites so far in the abstracts.

Is it the window-panes distorting a building opposite. I hope so, otherwise my eyes are going. The whole thing looks like a wall of Art Nouveau tiles. Very good.

Very nice abstract. Colors work very well together. The varying rectangle sizes not being consistent gives it a nice randomness. I wish all of the brightest areas were not so close to the outer edges, as they lead you out of the frame as is. The very narrow border on the outside tends to mitigate this though - although normally I'm not a big fan of borders.

The lighter area's at the top bottom left & right hand side spoil this image for me. A slightly tighter crop would improve the image. Nice idea though.

There is something very appealing about this - well spotted and a lovely crisp photo. Must ahve taken some care to get it square, an important element to contrast with the distortions. I also like the vertical asymmetry contrasting with the horizontal symmetry. This ought to be the winner - 10
