Wow, look at the reflections on this excellent graphic capture Katta! #9922286

Bunny Snow level-classic January 16, 2012

Well envisioned and captured. The sharpness, clarity, details, tonality in the statues and bas relief is absolutely amazing, Katta. Difficult for me, but easy for you. And, the added diagonal with the images mirrored and abstracted creates a view rarely seen, but added graphic elements of design. Another winner for you, Katta! #9923158

Nikki McDonald level-classic January 16, 2012

Bunny and others have said it so very well, Katta. The detail in the far facade is incredible and I really like the way your perspective telescopes the distance between the pyramid and the old building. It's rare that a softer foreground and very sharp background works for me but because of the abstract nature of the reflections, it's perfect here. #9923268

Michele Peterson level-classic January 16, 2012
