J-M, I find that glint rather unattractive. To me, glint inherently has the warm qualities of sunrise/sunset direct light. This is a harsh light. It looks like "annoying sun reflection", not glint. It detracts rather than enhances. Maybe the angle with respect to the sun is unfortunate. Maybe you needed the train 15 minutes later. Maybe you need to revisit the processing. Maybe my tastes are simply way different than yours.

I get that you are intending glint, I simply don't think you captured it well.

My tastes only ...

But, please, don't go all "Europe" on us. Photographers the world over love glint, including in these parts. And RP has many accepted glint shots.
