Jonathan, Another stunning capture. Modern buildings are in themselves becoming beautiful pieces of art and congratulations to the architects designing them. However, it takes a truly gifted photographer to capture that beauty, just as you have done. Thanks again for yet another inspirational shot. Simon
Great alternative shot of an architecture that has been almost shot to death I love how you produce a new experience of this space, by "deconstructing" the spiral, so that is becomes arches that define the distance. It's wonderful how you manage to show the separation lines from the underbelly of the spiral even in the dark foreground. I also like the four prominently placed lamps, prompting me to look for their "colleagues" in the shot. I am wondering though if a B&W conversion wouldn't be better suited, since the only reason for colo(u)r seems to be the warm orange light in the lower right of the image... which is, I admit, a nice kinda "hi there, I am a color shot" wink, but...
Much obliged for all your top insightful comments my friend,well de-constructed again Mono could work very well too for this and many others I took here I think,maybe if I had those people on the second ramp more to the left and then they could be silhouetted against the skyline,that would make it even better
Thank you mate,this was taken during the London Open Weekend which takes place only once per year in September. This day you can tour most of the building,any other day you are still allowed in but are restricted to 3 floors I think and one`s the Cafe I personally never had any probs shooting there ever though,I think they only get fussy if you set up a Tripod...which I never do
