Yes it is fascinating, and so abstract, that it's hard to know exactly what we're looking at. In a good way! Colours, lighting, time of day: all just right.

This is a unique, beautiful and sharp capture again.

I like this almost abstract presentation of this modern building. The colours and patterns are lovely and you selected very well what to include in the frame.
Have a nice weekend

A real work of art on this facade. I like the graphical effect of the squares and lines of iron and glass.

You have a great eye for capturing this style of image. I love the light, colours and geometry. Your verticals are vertical and parallel. Top shot.

Fascinating and mesmerising! Perfectly captured under a sympathetic ambient light. The coloured patterns seem to positively shimmer.

une superbe photo, cadrage parfaitement executé sur cette façade originale.
Graphisme et couleurs sont d'un bon impact.

Another beautiful "texture" photo, I like such a beautiful graphism very much, the result is an abstract photo

Nice to see this building again from a new angle, its glasswork really is like art, and in this view we can see the smart collection of horizontal and vertical lines. Its one of those crazy eyes pictures that if I look at long enough, it seems to start moving. Love the burst of color to the left, and its sheening metallic finish.

Hello Brian - You seem to find the best of modern London and present what you find in your own inimitable style. Attractive graphic lines and patterns lift this from the norm and present the architecture in a punchy and abstract way.

Another great capture of this impressive modern design! Love this creative cropping and impressive achieved level of details. Very well done! TFS.
Have a nice weekend!

Maybe I have consumed a few too many, what am I seeing here?? Crazy thing is, I don't even drink! Yeah, that's right...I'm naturally this weird! :p
Really neat concept here my good man, love the strong graphics and colors, especially the blue. Bet you didn't see that coming, yeah? ha Somehow this gives me the impression of actually being in the Matrix, I'm half expecting this imagery to start breaking down into code at any second now.
Love the light reflected off the facade, giving a slight break to the rigid patterns. Smartly composed too, filling the frame and using the soft curve to enhance dimension. "Rigid," "curves" etc....stop it, I know where your mind is going! ;) Awesome visualization and flawless execution. Have a great weekend. Take it easy.
Cheers from the hotbox,

Ces nouveaux immeubles de Londres sont vraiment très intéressants pour les photographes. Une nouvelle très belle réussite.

Fascinating patchwork with the many straight lines, the colord left part and the cmouds reflections on th eglass walls.
You've discovered lots of interesting places in the new London.
have a nice day

I like the composition using the colors to build a graphic view. The purple-pink stripes on the left is contrasting with the other part of the front.
The slight piece of blue sky is then underlining the textures of the building.
