Complex and gorgeous!
Picturit: Thank you, Ray. It is near the Central Station and lots of new buildings are there with an overkill with glass.
Well seen, Astrid, reflections are always fun to photo...
Picturit: I love reflections, sometimes they are better than the "real deal"..
Oh! Very good, Astrid!!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth.

Superbes reflets.
Picturit: One big building with glass.
YES! But too bad I didn't know you were putting this up today because I could have posted mine, too.... Later, when I do, I'll reference this mercurial shot!
Picturit: sad I know, I am sorry. I will see if I can come up with another one that is in the same area. Thank yo, Ginnie.

Absolutely love this image Astrid! The reflective surfaces of modern buildings are wonderful for this sort of shot
Picturit: This building is there already for a long time and they kind of built on to it. Many new buildings are built "in my back", that together came to this.

Excellent, Astrid, and so striking and clear in black and white

Very nice Astrid, a smart area which would be a pleasure to walk around.
Picturit: This was fun for I was new to this area and they just finished this part. The big building is old, the other buildings as the reflections are all new, as the tree.
Cracking reflection shot and a fine b&w LAdy P
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Bill. So much glass and such great refelctions everywhere. I wonder what will happen when the sun shines in it, Bill.

Fascinating reflections - you saw the modern Utrecht - I recall only the historic Utrecht.
Picturit: This is near the Central Station, Philine. Many tall glass buildings there.
Hele mooie reflectie van die kantoren.
En vanmorgen geen geren en gevlieg, bevalt het al ?
Picturit: Dit is de Rabobank bij Utrecht Centraal, ze zijn nog steeds daar aan het verbouwen en bouwen. Maandag was altijd mijn vrije dag, dus morgen is mijn 1e dag van "rustig aan". Het zal nog wel even duren voor dat het tot me doordringt, Marjolein.
Wow, quite one of the best reflection shots I've ever seen.
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Brian. I have to say that the building is huge and lots of glass.
Astounding photograph, Astrid. Took me the longest time to find your signature.
Picturit: Thank you so much, Mary. Don't you just love it, it is there and it isn't...
Thank you also for always trying to find my signature. It is my joy to hide it in a proper way.
a superb composition Astrid... i love it in b&w....petersmile
Picturit: Thank you, Peter. Sometimes I get lucky with pictures.

Well, now you have time to twiddle even more and you produce great results.

I have my visa so I am going.
Picturit: Congratulations, Louis. I am so happy for you, it is amazing what you and others have to through to get a visa.
I have now time enough to get some pictures ready in time for Shutterchance... lucky me.
It seems almost unreal. Mirror mirror on the wall...

Picturit: Indeed so, Claudio. After I saw them in B&W it looks totally different.
Thank you kindly.
That is exquisitely done.
Picturit: Thank you so much, Michael.
brilliant shot, Astrid! this high contrast b/w gives it a 'hard' look, if you know what i mean, and i like it.
Picturit: Thank you, Ayush. Yes I know what you mean and that is also what I wanted. It is fun to experiment with this kind of pictures.
PS. A reminder of a great day out with you!!

I love all the reflects. This works so well in B&W.
Picturit: Thank you, Cherry. This picture looked so much better in B&W.
Oh, well seen!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Robin. All glass and just amazing to walk in between those buildings.
such a cool picture, Astrid... I'm sure your Monday felt pretty good tho smile
Picturit: Thank you, Elaine. Every day feels like Monday wink that was my day off....
We had such a great time in Utrecht and to end up with a picture like this is a bonus.
