This is something of a departure from my usual stuff, but I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out, not least because the bit of the shot I intended to be in focus is relatively sharp, despite a shutter speed of 1/100 at the equivalent of 320mm. When the light is a little better (and I can get a higher shutter speed and smaller aperture without a ridiculously high ISO) I think I'll probably go back and take some more shots against this window. I'm not entirely sure what's behind the glass, but it seems to be some sort of reflective (yet matte) material that adds a wonderfully diffuse edge to the reflections.

Oh, and other than a minor saturation increase and a slight Levels adjustment this is a straight shot.

And thanks for all the great comments on yesterday's shot, it's now my second most commented entry after 'more tea?' (which, at 109 comments, is going to take some beating ;-)
