    A winter moment in downtown New York, with the bright sun reflecting from building to building.

      Similar to the reflections that indoor swimming pools cast on the walls. Very ethereal.

      Thanks, all. I was downtown on 13th Street outside the Union Square Regal, one of my preferred multiplex movie theatres, which is in a glass box of a building. At this afternoon hour the sun shone off the multiplex onto the apartment building across the way, and I wandered up and down the block shooting, shooting, shooting. The reflection was captivating.

      I stretched this pretty brutally in Photoshop to take out the perspective skew, which is why the aspect ratio may seem a bit squat - but I like the drama of the eye-level representation. In fact I'm on street level, and these windows are several stories up.

      Thank you for letting us see it your way.

      Hello, I like your picture. Would you like to add it - and any others you have that are similar - to a group I've started called Windows of Reflection?
