Sorry, but again three photos from Birmingham, maybe you are bored already. I hope that this time it is REAL blue hour shot. The walls of the new library are covered with something like a lace. There are two terraces, the upper one with a roof garden, and the view from there is spectacular, as you can see here and
here . Maybe you can see the people on the terraces when you look carefully. I spent a lot of time around with my camera and tripod. I was fascinated with this new building although I am not a fan of modern architecture. But when it is interesting, why not?
I hope you like it.

A fine blue hour capture of this most unusually decorated building designed to attract the attention. It looks superb against the midnight blue sky in this perfectly exposed composition. The detail is excellent.

another stunning and original blue hour shot this. Love the lights and shapes here they are so intricate and fascinating. Super imagery, well done!

C'est très réussi comme composition à l'heure bleue. L'utilisation du trépied t'as permis de choisir le temps d'exposition parfait. Les couleurs ressortent bien.Birmingham a vraiment une très belle bibliothèque.

You have made me fall in love with this building :) Not just the wonderful unusual design itself, but also the view from the terraces, they are spectacular! I have a fondness for all tall buildings (because there are none in Dublin I guess) so I like the view from there so much. This is such a cool and unique design for the library, really one of a kind. It looks like the kind of building I would have made as a child, and that’s a great thing for me, imagination unleashed!!
Thanks as always for sharing this under appreciated city.

What an amazing structure you've presented to us! It almost makes me want to go to Brum! Simple composition, well lit and appropriately saturated. I like modern architecture when it is unashamedly "new" and not trying to be mock-this or neo-that.
carlo62 (50031) 2014-01-06 14:36
stai tranquilla, non ci annoi con le tue foto.
Questa struttura mi ricorda un po' il nuovo museo di Marsiglia, tutto lavorato fuori e con la terrazza panoramica sopra.
Hai fatto tre foto molto belle, che descrivono molto bene la città nella versione moderna, neanche io sono un grande appassionato di architetture moderne, ma bisogna riconoscere che ce ne sono molte interessanti e belle.
Ottimo lavoro anche questa volta.
PS il ws che ho fatto è semplicemente un particolare della tua foto che mi ha colpito molto :)

L'architecture de cette bibliothèque est vraiment originale. Les couleurs du bâtiment sont très jolies. Photo bien réussie. Salutations.

Bonne photo à l'heure bleue de ce bâtiment moderne. Bon cadrage serré. La vue depuis les terrasses vaut visiblement la peine.

pieknie "opakowany" budynek.Wyglada jak wielki prezent pod choinka:)
Nowoczesne budynki tez moga byc czasami fascynujace,prawda?wszysko zalezy od inwencji architektow.
Swietna prezentacja i "blue hour",ktory robi piekne tlo dla tego budynku.

Thought this was a local prison, Malgo, but artistic approach to "defend" the library.
Nice shot at dusk, fine blue tones dominating. Superbly managed the light.
adramad (46476) 2014-01-07 7:49
A beautiful composition, with a magnificent graphics of these ornaments covering the buildings, their varied colors give a tremendous chromaticism and that beautiful blue hour the sky is the icing on the cake.
Good brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

You have shown me something in my own country that I have not seen before! This building is quite remarkable. Thank you for bringing it to my attention!
It is a perfect blue hour shot with fine sharpness to the details and colours that are well saturated.
I have a feeling I will have to visit this attractive library!
My best wishes go to you for a happy and healthy new year,

Ciao Malgorzata, favolosa ora blu con una bella ed originale architettura, splendida nitidezza e magnifica luce, brava, ciao Silvio

A beautiful and interesting building. Even better when it's illuminated and we can see the details. Seems a lace work. I like the pov and the colours with such a nice blue sky.

Ciao cara Itchy Feet
You;ve done a great job in bringing us this series on the Library. I love libraries and this one is particularly interesting/ A photographer's dream, I can easily imagine Craig drooling over this place. Beautiful Blue Hour light management and amazing graphism. I like the tight framing and the subtle colour saturation. A very natural, well composed and well illuminated photo. Nice one!
Thanks for your kind wishes for my mamma. I have read all the notes out loud to her in the hospital and it's made her feel very special. She sends her love to you and hopes you aren't over-itching your itchy feet :)

Hello, dear Malgo! This library was one of the first buildings of Birmingham on my way, when I came to B-ham from London by bus. And it was as a lighthouse during my walks around the city. Excellent photo! TFS! Best! Serghei
