I enjoy this picture, colourful and well composed, in spite of the strong distorsion (that might be easily corrected with a software such like PT Lens). It was the right moment.
Well done.

A very nice shot Andrew,
Good detail, colours and sharpness. The reflections are a very nice touch to this image.
Composition and lighting are excellent. Good POV and framing.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.
