    Stunning POV and composition, Katarina..I love the wave of the reflection running through the image, following the curve of the buildings. Great lines, curves, and angles!

What an incredible perspective, Katta -- the resulting sweep of the building lines is amazing. I agree with Michelle -- this will be a winner. Making it a favorite, I am.

Well envisioned, captured and executed, Katrina. Stunning composition..I love the wave of the reflection running through and the curve of the buildings. Amazing lines, curves, and angles!

Do you ever get a stiff neck from looking up and leaning backwards for such amazing captures?

Congratulations on your second place winner!!!!!
