This is my favorite of your June entries -- the sharp reflection and horizontal composition make it work better for me than "Thinker". "Night Lights" is my second favorite -- great results from the in-camera zoom and the tones are beautiful. I also like "Rendez-vous en l'air" for its other worldly feel and I think "Pillars, Arches and Chandeliers" is a terrific design element capture. Nice month as always, Usman.
