Ciao dear Brian
Oooh wow! This is a stunning photo. Modern buildings - I could take em or leave em - but when they're shot this expertly, I take em.
Sensational colours and graphism. The chromatic rendering is really something else. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
Have a great Sunday.

Spectacular colors and reflections. I like this modern shapes and lines together. Well seen.

Oh, you have hit the bull with this!
It is utterly, utterly eye-catching!
The viewpoint works so well, giving us the strong, vertical composition.
When we have sunshine in England, just look what it can do! The colours and the reflections are super!
Have a lovely Sunday,
We had the thunder and lightning on Friday night/Saturday morning. Yesterday was intermittently wet but not as bad as forecast!

You have the secret to discover brilliant colors in UK, and this one is no exception, well illuminated by a bright sunshine, a world of green, blue and purple glass with the orange reflections.

This is more an art picture with all these different colours and reflections.
Pleasant to look at
You show us a wonderful sharp and clear picture.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Great capture with superb light and colours. Perfectly framed to extract the maximum graphism from the architecture. I wish you a pleasant Sunday, I hope the weather is better than here, heavy showers.

There are some very interesting colors in this amazing shot from the Docklands in London. The shapes and patterns on these buildings are intriguing and especially the reflection of the one tower in the other makes this a spectacular composition.
have a great sunday

Please allow me to add my Woooooo to this too, what a cool modern architectural shot. There a buildings in Dublin with similar color effects, but they are far from skyscrapers, being the typical four to five stories everything in Dublin is. These rise majestically into the sky, and your angle to shoot is just perfect. Weird how the reflection is a different color from the real world, a great trick of the architect and your lens. Love tht blue sky too, perfect backdrop to she off these amazing colors.

Hello, excellent graphic architectural image. The colors are stunning. The conditions were just right, great sky, good light and a strong reflection in the glass.
rychem (39345) 2014-07-20 8:52
Great! I like the textures and colors of both facades very much, excellent POV to show the tall buildings, spectacular photo

un très beau jeu de lumière, des reflets et des couleurs superbes et un point de vue qui donne une belle élégance à ces buildings. Une capture très réussie.
jjcordier (79297) 2014-07-20 22:08
superbe photo! Ces façades reflètent lumière et couleurs de splendide façon. J'aime beaucoup.

Nice to see the more modern architecture breaking away from the traditional old black white and grey color scheme. A superb reflection of the building at right within the glass facade of the building at left, with vibrant colour and good saturation. Tfs!

moderne architetture che si contraddistinguono dal colore e dai riflessi.
Bellissimo il cielo che le circonda.

They said: oh, these concrete jungle... But sometime I really like to walk around some big city. Very picturesque artistic composition with outstanding colors and fine DoF.
Gigidusud (21191) 2014-07-22 13:33

Hello Brian - this is fabulous; what a collection of colours and the sheen across the glass is so unusual. You must be thrilled with this one.... it is excellent!
annjackman (21899) 2014-07-25 4:23
I haven't seen these buildings, or perhaps just not noticed it in dull weather! I love the colours and reflections - looks very futuristic.
Best wishes, Ann
