    First off, I like.

    I do think that the horizontal and vertical window frames are a strong compositional element. The fact that these are non-symmetrical within the frame comes across as a bit of a distraction to me. I know that perhaps others may see this as a source of tension withing the composition, but I think it makes them more obvious than they should be given that the reflections are the interesting part of this abstract.

    Otherwise I like this very much.

    I often feel like these types of images fall down, but this one is quite cool.

    Thanks, guys!

    @sleist - Thanks for raising this issue. I was seeing the positions of the frames as just a necessity of getting the reflected elements where I wanted them, but I guess there is some leeway in cropping differently to make them symmetrical - give up a little, gain a little? In any event I'll take another look.
