great reflection in the puddle. colors are great and the stormy sky is perfect with the photo.

Excellent work creating this design with the reflection Allen.
I like the low POV like you are down at the level of the headlights in the distance.
Cool shot.

You took the opportunity - well done! Nice composition.

Bom dia

Great composition and light. Congratulations

My regards


realy nice composed shot here Allen like the way you caught the reflection of the buildings

Hello Allen,

I was wondering how you had managed to take this excellent shot without getting run over!

The reflection is mirror-like and perfectly sharp. I like how the obelisk makes a very tall column with its reflection.

You have placed everything perfectly in the frame. A great shot!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

LOVE it!!! the low angle from where you shot this gives a great view and reflections! Wonderful!
Great details Allan and a briliant idea...

Funny how this shot has only 10 points.... (yet)

hi Allen

Wow! That must be heavy rain to cause the puddle of water on the street?

I like your composition from this low angle to show the still reflection of the buildings and lights and the poor light conditions really allowed you to capture the reflection nicely in contrast.

Just nice on your exposure setting. Good shot.

tfs, bill

Hi allen,
The low POV is really what makes this photo interesting. It helped capture the great reflection. Awesome composition, well done!


Hi Allen,
very interesting POV here.
The mirror reflections in the water adds a lovely touch.
Well done.
Best regards, Daniel

Hello Allen! That's a fantastic shot my friend! Very cleverly composed with great reflections and very technique, well done, thanks!


Hi Allen,

Hope you were carefull standing here on the street - but your POV makes it worthwhile.
Excellent composition, nice reflecting red stop lights and good atmosphere.
