Very good framing, and I mean it. The concept is always interesting, even though not too new. I'll be honest. I don't find it very moving. I would have, perhaps, if the reflected oldies were obviously ramshackled, kind of suggesting that the new is on it's way to crush the old. Or if the reflected building were not imposing, if I could see and old past in the reflections, rather than something that comes from the past but is still here and, well mantained, will stay.
Sorry if perhaps sounds like a criticism, is more like a well meant suggestion.
Technically, very good job, I am just uncertain about the saturation, hue and loss of detail on the reflections, but it really is a matter of taste.

Nice twangy tones here -- like cross-processed film.

If this were mine the contrasts would be in black and white but the funky colors work well and I know the voters will like this interpretation.

This is a slick and smart image! An exquisite structure with such striking colours! The super modern with cold colours contrasting with the old and warmer colours in the reflections is outstanding. I love this image the first time I saw it. Great job, Alessandro!. Go Long Shots!!!

I don't know what you did with the pp'ing, but I love it!! Very groovy vibe, and love the retro reflections in the uber modern structure. Great work.
