Taken with Panasonic DMC-FZ7, this is the view (through glass) from the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower in Melbourne. There is a description of it on my upload "Eureka!" The section reflected in the jutting window seemed to turn out better than the rest of it.The unusual complex in the centre of the image is Federation Square (also colloquially known as Fed Square) a cultural precinct.It comprises a series of buildings containing a public broadcaster, art galleries, a museum, cinemas, exhibition spaces, auditoria, restaurants, bars and shops around two major public spaces, one covered (The Atrium), the other open to the sky. The majority of the precinct is built on top of a concrete deck over busy railway lines. . . . . Thanks for sharing this great view with me - not for vertigo sufferers :)

I was hoping you would give us a "View from the Top." Gorgeous Lyn. I like the reflection as well. I didn't realize just how large Melbourne is. I see you used your old faithful camera. Good work.

I think the looking up view made me dizzier. lol Love the composition with the reflected view. I find it a statement of the times that that lone church with its heavenward reaching steeples is far outreached by the height of the surrounding buildings. Still it seems to stand out from the rest. Quite a view, Eve. Thanks for taking the trip up to show us the view down.

Fabulous cityscape Lyn and the reflection in the building on the right is inspired. Both this shot and the one from the bottom are good examples of modern architecture.
