[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I spent a couple of hours one weekend afternoon wandering around the Civic Center area of the San Francisco, familiar to me because I work there, but not a place in which I often have free time along with my camera. As I took the time to concentrate on architectural features and details that I have often meant to capture, I eventually found myself at the corner of Davies Symphony Hall that has a curved wall of windows, usually offering a beautiful view of the interior of the building. As I lined up for a few shots I suddenly discovered this angle that contained a strikingly clear reflection of City Hall.

PP: standard RAW adjustments, slight curve adjustments in lab mode, resized with border, jpegged, sharpened.

Hello Karen! Fantastic mirror. Good contrast. Wonderful exposure. Great effect. Well done!

Hi Karen,
Clever photo! This one plays with my mind a bit, there’s so much to look at and absorb. Very original work, good spotting.


Hi Karen
Great capture and idea
Excellent details and clarity
Have a nice weekend

Very interesting shot Karen .. I like this! Like Scott said, so much to look at and try to decipher ... which is reflection, which is not, etc. Great observation .. well seen and well taken.
