Project365 356: A Royal Tree

The pick for today was a toss up between the Christmas Spirit Tree at Union Station and this tree in the lobby of the Royal York. I liek the way this turned out.

I'm not going to show you the image from Union Station. It was a pretty good shot - I thought. I had the tree and the central clock in balance with each other. It was thinking about the idea of travelling home for Christmas. And then I had both of those refelcted in the polished countertop. I thought I had nailed it. When I got home I realazied that I had missed a big item; Also in the reflection was a brochure stand with bright white papers. It is amazing to me that I didn't see that when composing. I guess I was too focused on the main composition and mental assumed that the relfection would match. Lesson learned - probably not. :-(
