Hi TL friends,

A little while back, my good friend Vlad (pozaru), showed us a wonderful photo called History Repeating. What I found funny was that during my stay in Bucharest Romania, I came across the same building! ..lol.. And to think, that I was the only one who photographed it…...LOL…

Hi Costas, what a sharp clear reflection. Apart from the crooked walls, it could be though of as a real shot. Yes, As Hans has said - it is like a jig-saw puzzle.
Good job,

Excellent shot, Constantine. The POV, clarity , colors and exposure are great! Well done!

Hello Constantinos,
Excellent reflection shot, my friend!
I like the distortions as it adds something out of the ordinary...
Well framed and with good colours, nice work and a funny coincident with Vlad!

Hi Constantinos,
This is a very beautiful reflection, I like the horisontal & vertica lines that seperate each windows that are reflecting with great colors and sharpness. '
It's amazing how different phhotograph eyes are attracted by the same subject.
Have a great weekend.


good image, you were lucky woith the crisp blue sky too, bravo, Constantinos!!

beautiful compo, it shows the real face of Bucharest... a cocktail of styles and ages... well done!


Very nicely captured, Constantinos. I like your use of the line in the building to create a giant jigsaw puzzle. Great light & colours. Well done!

Γειά σου Κωνσταντίνε,
Όμορφη σύνθεση, έξυπνη με πολύ καλά χρώματα και φωτισμό. Πολύ καλή και καθαρή η ανάκλαση του κυρίου. Πολύ όμορφη δουλεια!

Hello Constantinos,
Lovely reflection and composition. What a coincidence about this and Vlad's photo. Good work. Regards. Danilo

A good reflection with a good contrast and sharpness. I see a secondary reflection on left side; it seems to be from indoor…

Hi Constantinos,

These shots are always nice. Good PP also.


Great shot Constantinos, lovely colours and reflections.

It is indeed a small world Constantinos!
Vlad is a cool guy and member! Nice wink to his works too.

Hi Constantinos, interesting reflections. I love the way that they show as shapes rather than true edges. Super colour and goodetail and sharpness. TFS,
