prospettiva impressionante, data anche dall'altezza che è molto percepibile.
Magnifico b&w, una scala di grigi superba, grazie alle tante finestre e a un cielo molto particolare.
Grande scatto, complimenti.

A wonderful soaring perspective culminating in a quite beautiful sky. Perfectly realised in black and white. Great stuff!

Good choise for B&W with all those graphic elements that make a great composition.

Impressive shot! Brilliant composition but what I love the most about it is the contrast between the strong regular patter of the modern facades and the soft clouds. B&w is the perfect medium to show this.

A spectacular shot created from this steeply upwards viewpoint. What a sense of perspective you have created!
I love the strong contrast between the regular, square patterns of the windows and the fluffy, cottonwool-like clouds.
Your b&w photograph is appropriate and pin sharp.
Have a great day,

Black and white is not really my favourite,but I know Les will like it!
Very eye catching.

I do enjoy the graphic lines and the overall effect of the mono treatment,very original and artistic,especially the treatment of the sky and tonal range.
All the best Les.

Very impressive perspective. Parallel patterns of the buildings generated a nice combination without irregular pattern of clouds.
B&W is goods choice also.

Very interesting and attractive black & white architecture picture!
Sharpness, exposure, large vertical format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

Superbe noir et blanc.L'immeuble semble vraiment s'enfoncer dans le ciel moutonneux. Excellente photo d'architecture.

well, since i'm Canadian i guess i HAVE to comment on this one don't i haha
this is one of those highly visual graphic type of photos, where if you scroll the page up and down quicky all the elements hurt the eyes a bit.
its almost visual overload!
but thats what makes it so good too.
so much geometry going on.
and the popcorn sky works well too.
excellent upwards pov on this one.
Cheers for Canada!

A stunning B&W shot Brian. I cannot get over the amazing detail in the sky or how well it contrasts in texture with the neat geometrics of the architecture. This has to be more apparent in monochrome, I'm sure that had we seen this in colour our eyes would not pick up on this feature nearly so well.'

Okay, you got me. I am packing my bags and heading to the airport :) a view like this is my idea of photographic heaven, you have capture every element so perfectly here. The lead lines of the mighty tower, the way the other buildings seem to bow to its majesty, the conversion to black and white and above all, that sky. It is so rare to see a sky like and it really is amazing in your photo. Beautiful work, canary wharf has never looked so good.
Cheers as always, the lessons in shooting sky scrapers is always appreciated.
