    very nice...however, when I started looking some more at the pic, I got the feeling that the watch or medaillon in the upper left corner didn't really have its place there..
    I couldn't trace it back to its source...

    otherwise, very nice

    Not sure if this is a montage shot, or a straight reflection shot.

    If the latter, I see it as being taken from outside a shop window, focussed on the reflection of building on the opposite side of the street. The top of the frame includes a section where the relection is of the shop's own building, above the window (which overhangs a bit) and includes a downward facing spotlight at the end of bit of bent pipe. All the clocks, etc. are inside the window, behind the glass. The top part of window has no external reflection because shaded by the (unlit, hence dark) overhang.

    Or I could well be wrong (again!)

    [COLOR=white]By far the busiest picture from Kaskais; yet, I only see #1 in the picture. Who says you canít use super wide angle lens for portrait?
