I like this shot. Each glass block reflection looks like its own little vignette, and it's kind of "painterly" which I like too. Neat

I really like this, are there variations of this? I'd like to see a whole lot of these...I like the colours, the whole concept.

"Playful" is the word that comes to mind.

I am curious as to what that means to you. To me, it means what photoshop thinks is a painting .

I cannot answer for another as to their interpretation of the phrase, "painterly quality," but as an artist outside photography in the arts of watercolor, oil, acrylic and encaustics, for me it would mean the image has the feel of a painting: rich, bold colors with somewhat loose yet very controlled and directed brush stokes sitting atop a well planned underpainting. When I first showed this to the director of the Visual Arts Center where this nice glass block wall resides, she showed me some images from a recent painting class from similar vantage points. it was quite amazing to see how close I was to them in creating a "painted" view. I can assure you however, this is a straight down the gullet shot through a very curved, glass block wall. Few pixels were harmed in the making of this and the other shots presented.

Was I after a painted look and thusly should I have put down the camera and taken up with brush and canvas? No, as my interpretation, regardless of how close the end result might be to a painter, was making a visualization through a difficult material. A study in light and shadow, if one must have a more defined interpretation.

Very much so...a very cellophane look to the glass block.

Thanks, Eric...This was a great find after I finally decided to get around to shooting it.

I think they are very good.

It only dawned on me, on seeing the others, that it is not a reflection as I thought! duh! ;D

Excellent, especially 1st and 3rd

 ... and it seems like the location might lend itself to an interesting 180 to 360 degree FOV pano.

I wish I had a good pano head. I thought the same thing. The biggest problem though is there simply isn't a lot of room on the stair platform where these were shot...maybe 3 feet by 4 feet.
