I'm having a hard time believing that people can't tell what sense this is.
I could have titled it Sights of the City or Through the Looking Glass or Seeing the Sights.
But it's a window!!!

All that said, I took this on the night of rollover. I scrapped my planned entry and I had no time to process or think of a title - it's all totally last minute. I love this photo as is so no matter to me. Enjoy.

Of course! Now it seems so obvious! I love the tiny car-like reflection in the upper middle pane.

I sense frustration. Great image, Penny.

One of my top picks in this challenge, Penny. "And now I see through a glass darkly"... it was something like that - we used it in some ceremony in my sorority house, I think.

Maybe this should have been called "Seeing... Through a Glass Darkly".

Heading out to the city to have a night of fun. Beautiful window distortion of the city lights.

I like this image. The title helps with the intended message, but the image also speaks enough on its own. The purple goes well with the green. Nice processing for this image.

"Through a glass dimly". I like the color and effect and the diagonal lines of the window frame.

Although I like the skyline/reflection/blur/candid, I'm not sure which of the five senses this is meant to represent.

Very interesting surreal kind of shot. I like the perspective through the glass and the motion blur. This one works for me. 7
