I’ve posted a shot of the Dublin Convention Centre before this one was taken at a different time of day and the clouds give the shot a completely different look.
The building, designed by American architects Kevin Roche, John Dinkeloo and Associates LLC and located on the Spencer Dock, features a cutting-edge design based
on a stunning glass cylinder that skewers the building from top to bottom, emerging
to form a spectacular glass atrium

The framing is excellent and is beautifully complemented by the splendid light and reflections. Superb colours and clarity as well. That wonderful sky makes the ideal backdrop.

An interesting note and a delightful and powerful image by way of illustration.
Your composition is very strong and graphic with bold sweeping lines and the varying reflections of the sky in this magnificent glass structure bear a wealth of gorgeous deep blues and greens which contrast well with the dull brown of that sliver of brickwork we see at top right.
Fabulous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

So very much to look at here, Rosemary - reflections within reflections. The structure itself creates some really cool geometry, but then mix in the clouds and geometry of buildings nearby and it's an easy one to spend a while in. I'd imagine the view from inside looking out is impressive as well. Thanks!

Another big smile from me, you have seen this place so differently than me, I have passed it so many times, and never saw this little slice of futurism. A beautiful way to present this building. Although, as we both mentioned before, the place is squat (and I think rather ugly) you are showing it has a very beautiful side, and a very sleek modern side too. Love the design of the clouds reflected in the lower part too.
Thanks as always for sharing your photo vision!

une très bonne photo, vous utilisz bien l'architecture de verre pour obtenir ces beaux reflets.

Maybe the other photo was an even more refined composition than this, but this is still a superb shot of this highly interesting building with its twisted, curving design, attractive colours and fine reflections.

Attractive modernistic architecture scene for the straight and curving lines intersecting at varying angles, and all within blue glass hue.

la classe non si smentisce.
Un soggetto che poteva essere banale o forse anche brutto nelle mani di altri, grazie a te diventa un ottimo per una bella foto sia per l'originalità del POV che per l'eccellente nitidezza e soprattutto per l'uso intelligente del colore.
Una foto di grande impatto.
Ciao e buona settimana

da questi scatti si capisce chi ha l'occhio giusto, l'occhio che fa la differenza, quasi tutti i possessori di una fotocamera non avrebbero scattato una sola foto a questo soggetto, tu, non solo lo hai fatto, ma hai creato una splendida composizione.

Un très beau jeu de reflets et de transparences sur cette façade de verre. Bon cadrage.

love this shiny glass facade,its color and your upward perspective,which together make the visual effect of the scene so strong.
Also the graphics with all these lines visible behind the glass facade is superb.It´s definitely the kind of shots I enjoy very much.Creative and very expressive!
Have a nice day

beautiful and elegant crop this. Like the graceful curves and hint of clouds reflected on the surfaces. Very arty and creative imagery. Like it!
Enjoy a good week - B.

I like this close-up; it gives a good impression of the materials. We can see inside the glass as well as the effective reflections on its surface. It's like one of those optical illusions, when your perception keeps changing!
The composition is fine, too, with attention to thirds and a good sense of depth.
photographer_sg (4414) 2014-04-07 7:53
Fine abstract composition with the strong geometric patterns and the reflections in subtle shades of blue and green. The sky adds the touch of reality and makes a fine backdtop. Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.
dekanski (5778) 2014-04-07 10:16
Like it, Rosemary! Nice geometric reflection!
rogerl (1620) 2014-04-07 15:53
Rosemary, a great POV for this shot, on a perfect day when you got some blue in the sky as well. Amazing grillwork inside the building, and reflections everywhere, even of the clouds. A really intriguing photo that holds your attention. Thanks.

A strong and bold composition with the wonderful arc and strong geometry inherent in the structure superbly demonstrated in your striking shot. There is much to look at and I find my eye drawn in to the myriad of intersecting lines within. For all that though, my overall impression is of a giant futuristic eye looking skyward. A bit of whimsy I am sure.
A lovely and thought provoking shot and an informative note to match
Thanks for sharing

Creative urban shot and modern art in architecture. Really love the punchy colours, detail and the angle you've taken it on, and so catchy with the visual effect, a real bit of vision. The reflections make for an eyecatching image and great abstract appeal too. Superb lens work, Congrats
GyurMaster (5676) 2014-04-19 2:22
Excellent composition as well. I like architecture photos like this.

Interesting result with all these reflections, perfect sharpness and nice blue tone.
