I really like your presentation of this impressive architecture, wide angle lens photography at its best. The charming little clouds go well with the patterns on the façade.

it seems you have discovered some gems in London, the blue/red facade is awesome, and I tried to read the letters which appear.

A simpli orsom photo. An extremely pleasant, colourful, well balanced and framed architectural shot with a terrific sky as backdrop. Nice light. You should use this one to tout for architectural work.

I have made a mental note to visit this fascinating building. I love the way that the puffy clouds add texture to the building. Very contemporary and punch - love it!
Kind Regards, Ann

Un bâtiment ultra moderne, que je trouve magnifique, façade de verre et décor de couleur de deux couleurs qui s'harmonise bien ensemble, le bleu et le rose, plus un ciel superbe, les reflets dans les vitres, très belle réalisation

What a great modern design presentation! The facade with so many intensive colors looks extremely unique and interesting and was very well captured with a high quality. Bravo!

I have said it before, forgive me to say it again. Woooooo.... I would have sworn this was an art installation from the thumbnail but to click in and see this is a decent sized building? Incredible colors and the placement of the windows in this facade intrigue me. I can safely say I love everything about this place and shot, the colors, the composition, e building, the creativity. I really need to get my lazy a** to London very soon!

It is difficult to determine what is reflection and what is not, and how the reflection affects the colors.
Anyway - a great photo!!!

Surprising architecture ! Great colours and fantastic textures. Very good POV and sharpness.
macjake (71721) 2014-07-30 21:57
so THIS is the beast eh!?
what a subject to photograph this must be.
does it always have this certain glow to it? or is it illuminated by natural light? whats going on here, its very futuristic and yet modern.
what a subject!!!
love this wide angle shot as well as the close up you showed earlier.

A striking warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and pink wall panels. Good sharpness & framing with excellent saturation and color. I like the contrast between the horizontal lines in the fg building and the vertical stripes in the bg building. Tfs!

Beautiful architecture well framed, colors are very plaesant, sharpness and exposure are perfectly managed.

Hello Brian - I have been a bit slack with TE this week ('flu) but I simply must comment on this one; it is breathtaking. The shapes, curves and colours you present here are so well captured and processed. This should be published in an architectural digest it is flawless!

Fantastic architecture and colours. Somehow, you also got the best sky for this photo. Really beautiful and eye catching!
