[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Normally modern architecture, boxlike offices and apartments, leaves me unimpressed and often annoyed at the total lack of aesthetics. However, finding myself in Collins Street at ten o'clock on a sunny, wintry day, I was surprised at all the magic that reflections created where modern and old seem to complement each other.

Dobar rad lepo pokazana fasada i detalji, dobar kontrast i ostrina, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa refleksom na staklu.
Lepa fasada i refleks na staklu.
Zelim vam sve najbolje.

Salut Klaudio,
Très bon effet de contraste avec ces reflets sur les surface vitrées, bien cadré, les lignes sont parfaitement verticales et horizontales. Bien vu !

Hello Klaudio,

I have similar opinion about the modern architecture. Interesting composition with the old facade with the reflections of modern buildings in the windows. Perfect cut. Well observed and presented. Interesting that all the rows of windows are different.
Wintry day, haha.

Have a nice day

Hello Klaudio,
You made a good observation. The distorted white reflections create a very attractive pattern fitting well inside the frame provided by the older building.
Best regards,

Hello Klaudio,

The blue reflections compliment the old red brick building. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. I might have added more shadows and contrast. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs!

Hello Klaudio

Brownstone building reflecting concrete and glass on the other side of the road? I like the formalism and rigid rectangles.

Ciao Klaudio. In effetti lo stile della facciata è molto serioso e poco decorato aldila' delle rigorose geometrie,in compenso si è creato un bel gioco di riflessi nelle finestre che da' un tocco di colore ed originalita' alla foto,cattura eccellente molto brillante e dettagliata. Buon weekend e complimenti,Luciano

Nice detail of this facade with the artistic reflections. An interesting image, well observed.


Hello Klaudio,I like shots like this where each set of windows presents a different pattern of reflections.
The colouring is quite subdued but pleasing.
The stone/carving decoration reminds me of eyes!Sorry, I can't help my strange imagination!
Regards Jean.
