Posted this in color on another section of our forum and asked for comments on cropping and composing. Applied the comments and found a very pleasing color photo. Saw this challenge and made a few changes in Luminar (monochrome and lifted the shadows in the reflections) and hey, not bad. Take a look in full size.

Busbob,

In B&W, this requires some looking to REALLY get all that's there. I didn't see the color version, but I'm guessing that in color, the varying elements don't blend in quite so much, standing out from each other better. In this version, though, I think you REALLY have to look at it larger to really appreciate it!
