The challenge is almost over:
Yes, it's a reflection.
And the location is NYC, 5th Ave around 50th St (I think).
It's black and white because that's what I signed up for in the side challenge but it also works in color. In between the thick thick dark lines the glass is grazed (frosted).

I enjoyed this week a lot. This truly was a "best" of 2009 for me!

I would love to see the rest of this building, it looks like it's got some bizarre shapes going on!

I've looked at this several times and I still can't really make out what it is besides an abstract architecture image. It is interesting for sure.

nice abstract with interesting curves and distortions. Would be interesting with some good colours. B&W works fine but just curious

The waviness of the wall suggest that the entire image is a reflection. Oneof those shots I have to stop and examine for a few moments to figure out what is going on. Well done.

Excellent city abstract and great B&W.

It's quite mind-bending. To me, colors could help more to identify what is what...

the grey tones look good

Brilliant! I love that there are no straight lines in this architecture shot, pure simple motion with a touch of grit.

I love these urban style shots and most of all in b&w. This one has a cool reflection and distortion. I only wish I could see more it feels a little cut off.

good urban abstract...would make a good print in a corporate office 7

Interesting shapes and lines through this image. The reflections off the glass are great.....however the lines all lead to different spots and keeps my looking all around the image to find something to focus on

I love the warped perspective through the reflection. An excellent shot......8

Nice - very Escher-esque.

This is a great composition, but something feels unnatural about it. Maybe too much sharpening? I like where you're taking this theme, however.

Great eye for interesting subject.
