A glimpse upwards at the sky in this man made glass canyon. This is a skywards view in Mitre Passage which runs between two of the curved glass buildings at Peninsular Place in North Greenwich, London, England.

An original shot where you have made excellent use of the wide angle lens to compose a very dramatic shot with the wispy clouds sweeping across the sky a perfect backdrop for the buildings.
I like it a lot.
Have a great week,

Architecture imitating Nature!
A very original interpretation of these buildings.
The vertical format works well, insinuating the height of these glass fronted buildings, which reflect the sky perfectly, giving an interesting blue palette.
Have a lovely day,

Blues and more blues Brian, strong geometrics contrast dramatically with the soft wispyness of the sky. I like the sliver of light at the top of the RH building and imagine that during the winter months the bottom of this man-made canyon gets very little light apart from that which is bounced off the glass.
Have a good week

This is almost a picture that you must take on your backrest.
Always very pleasant also your picture is very well.
But your picture is wonderful of quality and architecture.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Excellent composition and nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

this is very cool, it looks like the death star! I didn't know you rent space ships in London but another reason foot me too want to go! This is a beautiful perspective, and you handled the light perfectly, not easy in the shadow of big buildins. Love the delicate streaks of cloud in the sly too, a beautiful result
all the best

Excellent POV! Most of the time I forget to look up. This is a great reminder why I should :)

all I can say is...freaking COOL!
and yes, its ALWAYS important to look up into the sky when near glass skyscrapers.
this shows exactly why its vital to do so.
love all the blues and the strong impact the scene has.

Bet you can't guess what my favorite thing about this one might be?? Bluuuuuuuuue! :) I have to assume this is what you first see when opening your eyes as your lying on the pavement after a late night bender, yeah? Oh, sorry...is that wrong, were you actually face down? lol
Love the title, exactly as this would suggest. It does pay to look upwards, and this is proof positive. Not only are the colors and perspective impactful, but the architectural pattern itself is noteworthy. The small sliver of warm light along the top right is just the icing on the cake too, what a cool shot! Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from across the big blue,

Impressive city view, it is really a gorge made of glass, clever POV, perfect photo

ça change du Grand Canyon mais c'est original et assez spectaculaire!

So Brian, congratulations: it's the first time I can see the Greenwich meridian, cutting in 2 parts this glass building!

Love this one, Brian - a perfect title for this somewhat dizzying view. I love the interplay of the soft wispy clouds and the harsh angular building walls, drawn together by the color and nothing else. A really striking perspective - thanks!
