The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The palm trees are framing well the street. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the highrise building. Have a nice day.

A very informative note complementing the photo. It's interesting that they built the building with a bulging facade. There appears to be pod of some kind, perhaps an elevator in the front. You were there on 10 October, are you still there? And certainly it is preferable to be there than in July or August.

Hi, quite fresh and nice photo - very modern-looking indeed. Interesting design of the side of this building - looks a bit like a sail or something like that.
