Public library and


I have been meaning to take a decent photo of the public library but, for different reasons, I never got near to a satisfying result. So far, I understood that I'd better come here when it's dark to avoid the reflections. But today I decided to post this one because, first, I like the colours and secondly, I thought that reflections can be a nuisance but they may be interesting...

The motorbikes reflecting on the spotless screen can be fairly disappointing, but, if you look carefully, you will notice a few other details of what it is to be found near the library. On the left you can see a big white umbrella with people sitting at the tables outside the bar (they are probably having a good espresso, I know the place...).
In the centre you can see some bright rectangular windows. If you look to the right, you may spot the sign of the big store hosted in this mirrored building (hence the bright reflection...).

Yea, you've got success to realize "the moment" in this picture!
I think it's fine, too!

The reflections make it and the picture reflects on you - an excellent photographer!

Yes, reflections can be annoying and distracting but sometimes, as you said, it reveals an interesting dimension to the photo.
