Carolyn,
This is fabulous. The effects of the branches are outstanding. I bet this will be back to visit us again.

Jordi and Kerby, thank you VERY much for your very complimentary comments on this image!! I really like the way the branches and autumn leaves are framing this, too!! Of course, I also love that gorgeous blue sky overhead, with the light clouds scudding by!! Thanks again!! :o)

Carolyn this really is amazing. We all take and see so many building reflections etc., but this is an entirely new perspective. Really inventive and such an impact. You must have spent some time getting the very best spot to shoot from!

Thanks for your kind thoughts on this image, Janet, Ermanno, Jim, and Marcie!! :o)

Janet - strange as it may seem, it only took me a very short time to capture this shot! Phil and I were just walking down the street towards Pyrmont Bridge, to cross over to Darling Harbour, when I saw the reflections you see in this shot... I lifted my camera up, and took a couple of shots of the reflections, and then, just tried lifting my camera RIGHT up, so that I was looking directly overhead, and could include the building behind me (that of course was creating the reflections!)... Thankfully, I managed to keep my balance alright!! Hope that all makes sense to you!! ;o)

Thanks once again to all of you for looking and commenting - I really appreciate it!! :o)
