Back to some pure graphics. This is a part of the glass building with the reflections of the opposite one.

PP: tight crop, reduced the shadows (in shadows/highlights) as the area of the reflection part was a bit underexposed, noise reduction, framing, resizing.

A real beauty, Marija. Weird how the glass distorts the reflected image of the building. Excellent PP work on clearing up the shadows. I'm not really fond of the uneven frame you used, but that's just a personal appreciation.

Hello Marija.
Very good graphic capture, i like it mirror reflections.
Different point of view, very well.
Thanks for sharing, have a good day.
Best wishes from Turkey :o)


Great architecture shot, Maria! Your composition is top notch and the treatment excellent. I just wish the sky was a bit less bland, but that' not under your direct control! Great job!

reflections are always interesting to photograph :)
well done on the composition to include the yellow across the frame

One of your reflection speciality and another one very nicely done, Marija. Very ncicely composed and I like the diagonal line created by the yellow top of the building and the windows. Very clear reflection. Excellent!

Sorry, my bag is empty!

I don't really think that you need a new camera, Marija. All of your shots are so clear and clean - and I don't think you can get that through PP, so it must be coming out of the camera. Am I wrong? (genuinely curious)

Love the colors and whimsy of this one! Good job, as usual.

Gayle :)

Fine abstract shot. The yellow line makes the image. Excellent idea. Using an old theme in a new way.

merhaba guzel arkadasim,
very interesting look, good work maria

Hi Marija,
I need to start with congratulating you with the b'day of your daughter. I know a little late, but...never late then never.
Great to see you post abstract architectural again. You are so good at these kind of photos. Love the reflection, love the angle and contrast in the colors. Pitty that the sky looks a little pale.

I start to recognize you by your pictures Marija! :)
Nice composition and reflection! Pure perfection! :)

Well-spotted interesting composition, Marija.
I like tight crop here with diagonal yellow line.

Hello Marija,
Great lines and a fine reflection, all melted together in a well balanced composition..!
The colours work so well together, as the yellow is enhanced by the different shades of blue...
Well done... Pleasant!

Very good graphic capture. reflections are always interesting to photograph. Well done.

Very good Marija; the random distortion is wonderful.
I made a ws; the differences are small.

Interesting capture Marija. The frame is just full of geometric shapes. Combined with the excellent colours this is surely a winner. Nice work.


Perhaps I'm a fan of the dark, ominous images, yet I think this shot needs a bit of darkness, it's just a bit too light, otherwise a great shot and fits nicely into your portfolio!


Hi Marija,
Very good capture. Nicely detailed and sharp.
Good colour and framing.
Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Very nice shot. Well composed, great colors and graphical effect. Unexpectedly nice frame...

Had to go backwards a bit to find one that I hadn't insulted you over and it turns out to be this one. Aside from the obvious, you seem to have an affinity with this 'zone'. I guess that you find it easy but that's like most things in life that are done well by others - they make it look easy. So there's praise in a roundabout way.
You know very well why it's a winner and I haven't read the comments above but I suspect that everyone else will have told you what you needed to know. The penalty of getting here late.
Don't be a stranger!
