    Cool. Is the curving distortion due to a wide angle lens or is it because you were moving and the way a focal plane shutter works?

    I'm amazed how sharp those reflections can be. One guy posted a reflection from the side once and it looked great. Only the windows acted as a mirror to.

    Where the tree overlaps the monument (I won't comment on it ;)) it looks slightly odd. It's just a trick of the light, I know.

    Well done Jon. Again!

    Good one, you sure like that monument :) Keep taking pictures of it, it's interesting all the angles you find.
