    I think i already posted a pic of this building from a different pov...
    but every time i walk by it, i'm always amazed by the reflections... almost looks like a mirage :)
    here i think it's a tad blurry because i gave it a go through Neat Image and it couldn't find a uniform area large enough... so it's overall softened. but i think it enhances the mirage effect :)

    This has great color.

    I think reflection shots of architecture almost always are interesting because this point of view automatically throws off our "normal" ways of seeing and shows us a new world, or a "mirage" as you put it.

    I think the blurriness really adds to the effect that makes a person whether it is real or completely photoshopped. As someone else said. good eye :)

    Beautiful sunlight, good eye, and pov... all in one. As peanuts said the bluriness adds to the effect...
    bravo, un magnifique reflet au travers de tes yeux.
