Kongens Nytorv Reflections

Here's a reflection shot again and it's again one of a square in Copenhagen, just like Rådhuspladsen Reflections.
The square you can see here is Kongens Nytorv (King's New Square), located in the centre of the city.

Kongens Nytorv was built in 1670 by King Christian V. The square is connected with Rådhuspladsen (Town Hall Square) by the shopping street Strøget. Buildings that can be found at Kongens Nytorv are among other buildings det Kongelige Teater (Royal Theatre), the big department store Magasin du Nord and Hotel d'Angleterre. The building you can see here is located at the corner of Kongens Nytorv and Gothersgade.
In the left window you can also see the reflection of Nyhavn.

I hope you like this picture!

Hello Lars
Wow, I love such reflections! Like two different worlds in each window. Perfect quality - sharpnes and light. And... I like the green man in the centre ;). Great idea.

Hi Lars,
You do have eyes for reflections. This one in particular has been very well composed. Great colours.
With Greetings from India

Great photo and great reflection. I do like the two guite different reflection of one side of the same street. And the orange-haider cyclist is the main point. Great. Regards T.

Another great reflection shot Lars. The person 'walking' her bike and admiring her reflection is very timely. Superb quality pic.
Best wishes

Bonsoir Lars
excellentes ces réflexions ! j'aime beaucoup la dame à gauche avec son chapeau blanc qui a réussi a trouver un sac de la même couleur que ses chevaux ;o) elle semble regarder également ces réflexions. Jolie compo.

Rather strange since the two refelxions of these identical shop windows show vert different views. A funny touch with the reflexion of the crossing light and that of the woman with her bicycle. Very good sharpness.

All the best,


Hi Lars, A fun picture with a clear reflections. I believe I see you in the reflected image. Nice clarity and sharpness. You have well selected to include the lady in the picture, which contrast the original and the reflected image.

Hi Lars, clever use of reflection in this photo. The relection is clear and sharp too. Good work.

Excellent shot Lars; the reflections are so clear. I'm wondering if the lady with the bike is admiring herself or she could be admiring you.

Agréable composition, Lars, avec deux réflexions pour le prix d'une. La dame regarde peut-être le reflet du photographe ou elle est intéressée par ce qui est dans la virine. Les couleurs sont belles et la composition bien pensée.

Hello Lars, these strong reflections are incredible. From the thumbnail I thought they looked like two posters on the wall. I like the clever use of the pedestrian crossing with one green man shown directly and the other in the reflection. The woman with the bucycle looking into the window is a good touch. What does she see? What is the inside world? We only see outside.

Hej Lars,
Another lovely reflection, with lots of details to observe. The composition is perfect, divided in two frames, with the green light in the midle. Interesting to see the same green light reflected in the left side. The blond woman, with the hat and the blue bike is an excellent add and very well positioned as well. I like the interplay of her with the person walking in the reflection.
A really good job in here. Congratulations!
Have a nice weekend,

Hallo Lars
mooi geframed deze twee reflecties in de ramen, prachtig die verkeerslichten herhaald in de reflectie en de dame in de hoek, deze zou je naar de winkel kunnen sturen om wat extra korting, niet ?
Prachtig gezien
Nof een fijn weekend

Lars, very interesting town. I like the reflections and the colours look great. The arquitecture and the people are very atractive too.
Well done!

Hallo Lars,
Dit is nu de specialist in afwerking van geluid installaties, en dit in weerspiegeling van de vensters met alle straat detail er boven op, de vrouw met het rosse haar vervolmaakt het beeld aan de voorkant.
Mooi experiment met zeer goede afloop.
Groeten uit een warm Vlaanderen,

Hej Lars
Et fint øjeblik du har fanget - reflektioner giver et fint billede af livet omkring Kongens Nytorv - Jeg gad vide om hun kigger på B&O udstyr eller bare checker hatten ;-)
God søndag

Graphic and funny. The reflections work very well and even create another world : full of light and people. The woman with the bicycle is useful to create some life and the "waalking light" is an unexpected funny detail. Very well composed.

Hi Lars
that is a very nice way of presenting kongens nytorv.
as usual you've achieved natural colours and good sharpness.

It is just like if B&O had two different specials offers for us... This feeling is due to the perfect framing and the dual windows.
I like this one, there are not to much elements in and the reflections are very good.
Jean Michel

Hi Lars
You have a good eye to capture this shot. Nice framing which gives us three pictures: the two reflections and the overall Bang and Olufsen frame. Nice exposure, good focus and nice details. A clever piece.

Hi Lars - interesting shot, a lot to look at here, not really my kind of photo, but I like the symmetry and spacing of the B&O windows, the shocking orange hair of the woman is also inetersting

Hello Lars,
Very interesting shot to captured the reflections.
You create a photographic theme from nothing.
Very well done!

Best wishes,

Hi Lars,

I like very much the composition and how you distributed elements within the image, including the woman.

Exposure is spot-on too.

Hola Lars.
One of the best reflection shot posted in TE.
Excellent picture. Well done.

very nice reflections shot, I would have taken the same thing if I was there on a fine day, but you beat me to it, thanks for sharing, it is a very good capture


Hi Lars,
This is a great idea and you have all the interesting elements there. The reflections look like two posters and each having a nice composition. The lady entering the frame is a good lead and I find the walking factor as very harmonious. Interesting shot!! Have a nice day.

Hi Lars, this is a beautiful shot exploring very well the reflections of the Bang&Olufsen shop. It seems that they changed from eletronics to real state. It adds a lot by having to different views and the two windows.

Bonjour mon ami Lars,
Très bien cette composition utilisant les reflets du magasin qui nous renvoient les images de la ville.
Il y a de la recherche et de l'originalité dans cette prise de vue.
Excellente réalisation.

Hi Lars,

I like the composition, fantastic change of lights and great reflection, you have a great creativity. Excellente work.

Hi Lars,
this is wonderful. Here I like the traffic signal and the other one that's reflected in the shop window. The lady with the bicycle is a nice detail... and I think I can see your reflection in the window too.
Have a nice day,

Bonjour Lars
Une composition très originale, agréable à la vue. Il est étonnant comme ton tu as recueilli l'attention, avec une grande quantité de détails dans cette scène, à une partie de de cela, maniés avec une bonne lumière et une clarté. Travail excellent.

Hi Larz:

Magnificent photo. The unbeatable framing and I like that the woman does not go out with the bicycle for the finished one, the imagination does the rest and this way also it gives him more opening to the framing. The colors are very good, the balanced well light, the reflexes the whole delight of mixing the real thing and the fictitious thing.
A good work, congratulations.



Hello Lars. A photographic play with reality and reflection. The world before and behind the mirror is fascinating and confusing at the same time. A beautiful and worth seeing photo. Outstanding composes. Best regards, Wolfgang.

Beautiful and well composed photo. Lighting and colors are great in this well composed picture.

well done.


A very good picture, because it shows the Kongens Nytorv form a very unusual perspective.

Goedenavond Lars
Those are neat framing and reflexions whose quality is equalled only by the Bang&Olufsen sound purity!
Met vriendelijke groeten.

Wonderful reflection picture, Lars, even two at the same image.
They are so different from each other's, it's like showing two different cities.
Even the red-hair lady with the bike were looking at what you saw... besides, I see you...
Fantastic point found, and superbly done photojob.
Good afternoon,

Hello Lars,
Hmm, Bang & Olufsen! I would be just as interested in the merchandise displayed in the windows as the reflections from them. But speakers aren't as photogenic as the interesting street scenery. I like the fact that we see one pedestrian crossing light in between the two windows and its mate across the street is seen in the reflection. Nicely done!
