Originality and great shoot. The composition gives to the watcher a great illusion at first and then becomes interesting as getting closer to this shoot. The technic used (tripod for the camera?), at least the shutter speed and iso at 800 gives to the "windows" the light needed to emphasize the idea of what I like the most in this work : hope. The square format and B&W are ideal to provoke the emotion and atmosphere. It is a great work, well achieved and really well thought. There is beyond the technic and originality what is the most important for a photograph : a vision.
this is very nice, and you used a good trick, at first i thought that it was a double exposure, reflection is cool. I think you can crop some from above, it'd be better, because we dont need the information on the black side.
