Thanks for all the nice comments.
I was in Beijing and wanted to take some night shots at Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City and saw some lights a few blocks away. I went to check it out and found the National Grand Theatre. I thought it was amazing. Never happy with my own shots, I thought this photo was not bad.

Perfect reflection

What a perfect reflection. At a quick glance it resembles a Zeppellin.

It has taken me awhile to puzzle out what I'm seeing. And it's lovely. I wish we saw more like this at DPC.

Looks something from outer-space :) Nice capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 12:41:03 PM
That looks like an egg, or an ear of corn lying on its side. Great capture of the reflectino.

I think a little more contrast here would have made this better. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:51:08 PM
First I thought this was a mirror ball, mylar balloon or something, but then saw the reflection and it appears to be at the distance of the small building on the right. Amazing building and great reflection. Where is this? Terrific location and timing for a photo.

Amazing composition. Together with it's reflection it forms what looks like a giant zeppelin or some alien spacecraft. Excellent exposure, editing and processing. Lovely detail and color. 8

WOW a beautiful building
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:04:19 PM
That's really cool (tiberius?). It's not just the reflection, it's also the color of the sky and how it matches the colors in the theater. Great stuff (whoever it may be).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:29:00 AM
wow, this is beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:37:36 PM
THAT is cool. I guess my only wish would be for a more interesting sky, although that might take away from the impact of the photo you have here.

A strong composition with a very interesting subject, but the background buildings are very distracting and I really wish they weren't there.

Looks almost like a space ship, or the other scale a lady bug... Interesting composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:52:44 AM
Oh, very nice; so precisely what the architect had in mind for us to see in the best of all possible sightings.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:47:28 PM
This looks so cool, almost looks like something out of a sci-fi movie :)

That is truly amazing! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:22:19 PM
It seems so dumb to say this...but here I go...that is so cool! It's an egg, it's a spaceship...it's floating, it's landing, it's rising from the deep...it's made of gold and crystal and I can't help but wonder what sort of sound it makes...it's just plain fun to look at this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:18:52 PM

Thats a funky looking building!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:57:06 AM
Too bad, with one step forward and a slightly wider lens you would have got rid of the distracting pier(?) in foreground. Other than that good shot, nice color scheme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:51:58 AM
wow - that is quite the reflection!
