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?

Pretty cool shot. Really neat how many colors and the depth that come through the glass. Cool Shot!

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.

I think it was a bin actually Flare, but I was more concerned with the glass to look at the background, plus people were looking at me strangly so I was being quick...lol...

Ah, okay. And it's understandable that you were more concerned with the glass, heh.

It makes me chuckle that people were looking at you strangely, you'd think they'd understand it was in the name of art! :giggle:

:hug:
Keep up the great work <3

You are so gracious.
No, it is not glass, it is a sheep - I just cross processed the sheep photo and then hand scratched the negative,...can't you see the sheep?
With the right title, half of them would see the sheep.
It looks like breakfast at Tiffany's gone crack house.
(Tiffany glass, that is.)

This is really cool. It looks a little like a spider's web which is often the case with broken glass. The colours in the background are great, emphasised by the soft focus.
