This for me is a really unusual take on the traditional forms of composition \ mise en scene that's taught in photography classes.
The shallow depth of field focuses on a cracked screen that's framed perfectly - the freak in the pane is perfectly diagonal. Behind it, an almost cliched street scene that's out of focus. The cracked glass is far more interesting than the row of buildings we've seen a million times before, but few others would have noticed the glass, much less chosen to compose and shoot a frame through it. The detail and light flowing through the cracked glass is what makes the shot special, as well as the vertical illumination running from light to dark with the battered glass standing in the way. One question - a broken lens or a vandalised door? Viewing the street through your image makes us speculate on what happened the night before.
What do you think?

Beautiful, beautiful colors. It reminds me of a spiderweb.
Yeah it does have that effect.

Is that a chair behind the glass?

Neat shot, although it kinda made me cringe.
I broke a mirror a couple of weeks ago, and now the sight of broken glass makes me flinch.
Although, I suppose this is just fractured, not entirely broken.
