For you who slept in math class when the teacher had his lecture on the shapes of balls and cubes I will take it one more time with an example from La Defense in Paris.
The green ball is an Imax cinema and there is probably an Imax movie on balls and cubes you can see instead of the boring lecture. The Imax movies are very educative and if there is not one on balls and cubes there will be one.
Along the right edge of the frame runs the corner of Le Grand Arc.

Excellent modern architecture photo Ebbe, much glass with special the green ball as cinema, wonderful composition, good note too.

Hi Ebbe, I like this one. I particulary appreciate the different shapes and lines combination and the way they are " compressed" in almost a plan. The light brings some depth though, also contributing in a 3 tones shading on the backgroud building. Perfectly corected geometry too. Congratulations.

Wonderful capture Ebbe! Love the play with shapes on your composition and the graphism you managed to get here. Good job :)

Strike as with the bowling !a successful architectural composition well done

Very urban like with some futuristic mood in it, Ebbe! :-) The light and shadows add more patterns and make it look more graphical too. Very well seen and presented!

As an old math student with a special interest in physics and once hoping to be an architect, I love this shot, Ebbe. A well chosen combination of shapes, structures, material and colors! Especially the reflections and shadow on the building to the left creates some lovely diagonal combinations. As well as the "green ball" and the darker square building in front of it. A lovely play in one image and I guess your best shot so far from La Defense. Well done!

Wonderful shapes and reflections, Ebbe. I ove your series of pictures from La Defense. I alo have one shot of this Imax spherical cinema here:
Good shot, Ebbe.

Magnificent contrast of geometrical forms! The founder of these architectural forms has not left him anything superfluous:) Goog job

Interesting buildings in the shape of geometry. I love the subject of your picture here, and you capture it well with such clean lines.
