    I was trying in this photo to include mutiple layers of imagery and different elements. Could I get critique on what you think to the succesfulness of this. How well it was implemented and hw composition could be improved to aid this.

    I think you did a rather good job on this one. You managed to capture the window, your reflection and the reflection of the sign, and a little bit of what was behind the windows. Thats three layers, and they work together. The only thing I would say you could improve on would be to throw it in PS and fix the horizon line, its just a bit off.

    Thanks alot kilifila66. This turned out a bit darker than it is in photoshop so on each layer you can see a bit more detail or elements. About the horizon line, the building is dilpidated and there are many lines none of which parallel to the slightlty sloping ground so I just chose the window to be straight.

    Anymore comments appreciated

    I see what you are trying to do.
    It's a nice window but what is being reflected isn't very exciting.
    Neither is what can be seen inside.
    You might need to do a bit of a set up to really get it to work.
