OK I lied. It's not my window. Noise reduction, crop, some shadow highlights, some curves.

Greetings from the Critique Club! *waving* hello noble leader! ;-)

Initial impression: A bit busy, but interesting.

Technical: Ah-ha, the askew/leaning house IS indeed the tipoff to a wide-angle lens having been used! Lighting a little harsh with the glare on the right, composition a wee bit on the random side. But for me it culminates at the house, so eventually it leads somewhere :-) The multiple reflections are interesting and keep you looking for more inside them, like a Gordian knot that needs cutting. 400 seems to be a pretty high ISO, as does 1/320...but who am I to argue?

Artistic: Wide angle glass is fun to play with, innit? I might have suggested pushing it even more to emphasize the bordering-on-funhouse feel.

Overall: Some time ago my parents gave me a sweater for Xmas with a completely haphazard design on it, in colours that suit me. My mum explained it by saying 'It reminded us of you, dear, slightly crazy but nice.' Sooo...yep, guess that says it all about this pic. Slightly crazy but nice.

Feel free to pm me with any questions,

Looks like I'm not the average voter here (I'm one of the nine). I just liked the non standard approach here with the light going from the right to the left and all those nice glass shapes.

I almost submitted a shot of a broken window (because we really do have one). Yours (even tho it's not) looks better broken than mine :)

This is a really neat abstract.

This is well done. I like all the reflections in the glass.

A bit abstract, I don't know exactly where to focus on the image.

Yes... Now this is how "artsy" shots should be done... Nice job.
