I'm sorry for submitting a picture that is very similar to my recent entry in the
'Low Key' challenge:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1103/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_826074.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1103/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_826074.jpg', '/') + 1) . '.
However, since that (a) was already called "Symmetry", (b) did pretty well in that challenge, (c) I didn't really have time for finding something else to shoot, I went for the same scene again. Seeing my current score, I guess that was a good decision.

Post voting:
Thank you so much for the votes, comments, favs, and the red! New PB with a 7 score :)

Here is an outtake that was taken the same night in a different place:

Very nice photo, I like the beams of light!

I must tell that i am not scoring well the pictures based on the reflection symmetry, because IMHO obtain a symmetry on a reflection is something simple, where everything is just ready to shoot.
BUT, i must also say that this picture just popped way over all the other of its class. The lighting is great, and the symmetry on the light rays just met perfectly the challenge. Congrats. This one will score well.
