Taken on the spur of the moment and a big thanks to my Girlfriend for lending me her eye...!!

I was roaming around looking at all sorts of Architectural buildings to photograph and how they could be captured slightly differently, then out of the blue, I snapped this one.

I would love to be able to play around with it and enhance the detail as it was very difficult to get the eye and the building in focus at the same time...

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it....

Thanks for all your comments, the more the better.

There was ONE comment in which I was screamed at for
the image having no architectural value...??? Well we
have different tastes and I am sure that no matter how
good or BAD a picture is, it is bound to inspire someone
else at some point - Isn't that what it's all about..???

Really great idea, although it isn't as sharp as it could be. If this was tack sharp it would be fantastic.

pity the reflection is out of focus, but then I guess if it were I'd be saying its a pity the eye is out focus. Not a critisism more frustration with physics ... really nice shot and concept.

Good execution, but it could use more contrast.

I see the building but I feel for your score :( I suspect you will take a bashing for being creative... My main concern is not with the creativity but that it's a bit soft. On DPC if you are going to think out the box I think you have to do it perfectly, so only a 4 from me sorry.

This is a really neat idea! The photo itself could use some contrast, as it looks a bit washed out. It might have helped to burn in the eye area a little to make the building within pop...

An interesting idea, but you're going to get punished for your "out of the box" thinking.

nice reflection

You can't even see the "architecture" DNMC

Love the idea, but it needed a bit more to be successful. Keep it up, you'll get it right!
